    Problems with my xls. First storm here, we hooked it up and tested on Friday all was good. Went to plow last night and plow wouldn't work at all.
    The power light to the remote is on.
    When you hold the down button the float light will come on.
    Not moving or making any noises.
    We checked ground, replaced selenoid, un-plugged modules and re-hooked them, checked all connections.

    If you replaced the solenoid it sounds like the motor may be froze. You can try taping on it lightly with a hammer. To make sure it is not the solenoid jump the terminals with a screwdriver. Just to be sure.

    I would still try jumping the solenoid. Even if it clicks there may be a bad connection inside.

    Test for power at all the coils and the relay itself.

    Ryan, what should I be looking for on the coils and relays with the test light ?
    Should there always be one live wire on each with the remote on?

    There should be juice to one wire on each coil, and obviously the primary wire on the relay. Truck on, plow plugged in, and control on...obviously. Double check your plow's module, to make sure it's fully connected before you begin.

    How new is this plow? Does it have the security lock on it, and have you attempted to mess with it at all? I think it's all modules -3 and newer that have them. Check the sticker on yours.
