    I have everything in the truck but I am outrageously confused on how to wire up the solenoid

    I have bought this solenoid

    I currently have run power from the battery to the solenoid at the 9 o clock position on the left, and have hooked the pump power cable in the same spot, I have the pump ground wire to the battery. I have the brown solenoid ground at the 6 o clock position (bottom small lug), and the black / wht on the 12 o clock top small lug)

    The keyed accessory is hooked up the fuse box by the drivers knee on the 4wd fuse, and the only other red wire is wired right up to the bat.


    I cant get the damn plow to move what gives?

    If you have the battery cable and pump power cable on the same stud (as per your description) the pump should be running all the time. So I'd guess your description is skewed a little and you need to better clarify.

    You also need four wires on that solenoid or it won't work either.

    I think for whatever reason the BCM might be shorting out when the plow is all hooked up. The truck wont start the lights wont shut off, the starter just clicks and the alarm goes off randomly.

    Have you considered taking it to a professional?

    BCM seems like an awfully big word for this conversation.....

    You need to have the positive to the pump on the 3 o'clock position. and the power from the battery on the 9 o'clock. It shouldn't matter if they are reversed.

    got it working, but now the smart hitch system on the plow will not raise.
