    Hey guys..(This is not a complaint,love my xv)

    Was plowing last night (4 inches of wet) i noticed my plow raising slow and then not raising at all. The problem continued to get worse when at certain times nothing would work. I got out and unplugged everything and checked fuses, seemed to work better for a bit. Then I lost all movement, when I press the controller all I heard was clicking from the pump. I just recently changed my s2 valve.

    Thanks guys. I short chained the plow to get it home. Fluid is fine.

    Could be motor, solenoid or connections.

    If it is not making a good connection with the main plug, it can certainly do that. Does the light on the controller blink when you are getting clicking? If so indicative of bad connection. If not, test the truck side plug for 12v and work from there.

    The lights on the controller are good. I had that issue last year and had to get a new fish stick. If the pump is clicking I would think it's getting power....will check plug tomorrow. I hope it is not a motor....odd that I was able to nurse it all night, until the morning it crap out.

    When the plow stops working, do you get a clicking sound? If you do then its the solenoid. On my XV I've already replaced 2 of them in 3 years. Easy and cheap ($13) repair, but sucks in the middle of a storm

    If it clicks how can you guarantee it is not the motor without testing the solenoid?

    Yes! Only thing it does is click, hopefully that's it.

    I'm just going by my own experience. Fisher has had a recall on the solenoids for the XV Plows, as one of my two were under warranty. If the motor was bad, I would think that it would smoke or the operator could smell the motor getting cooked. Either way I hope that its a solenoid for his benefit so he can get his plow squared away

    Thank you everyone! Once again this site saves me! It was the solenoid.
