    took blade out of storage hooked blade up to truck and blade wouldnt raise lower nothing heard clicking noise coming from solenoid. Turn plow on hit a button the plow shuts off. So put in new solenoid and plow works fine raises lowers side to side. Lower blade shut off truck and start work on other trucks. Go to move truck turn on controller and same thing again clicking noise and nothing push a button controller shuts off. What's the deal.
    Help me please.

    Sounds like you have a bad connector or connection. Inspect for corrosion at the battery and the solenoid as well. a bent, or broken wire that has been exposed can also cause it. If you question it, replace it.

    I've also had a brand new solenoid go on me within the very first storm...it's possible, but not likely.
