Xtreme Vee 1 power cable problem?

    I'm having trouble with one of my blades. Intermittently the plow is loosing power. The driver is telling me that he will get out, and hear clicking coming from the plow. He will jiggle the power cable, the clicking will stop and the plow will run fine.

    I have already cleaned the male and female connections, and the problem is still persisting.

    Any experts have an idea of where I should start to look next?

    Assuming all connections are clean and tight,there is a updated motor relay for the multi-plex units such as yours to assist with the voltage drop running thru the heavy gauge battery cables from battery all the way out to the plow,you want part# 42901,it will look identical to the old one but has a intermittent duty cycle and lists at the same price as the 5794K

    Stupid thing won't let me edit/add
    Low/poor voltage will make those units do freaky things,i've seen clicking to motors stuck running to not working due to voltage

    Thank you arc burn. I'm assuming the updated relay fixed those problems?

    I see it on installs and repairs when the trucks have weaker batterys,but yes,voltage issues just the same
