    Was out plowing today when I went to raise the plow nothing happened wings won't work, angle won't work. unplugged connections checked and put back together still nothing. Everytime you hit a level a click noise is made from under the hood of the truck. What is wrong?

    If it's not the plug I would check the motor? I had my S.W. act up last season, same symptoms. It was my motor. If I hit a bump or tapped it with a wrench it would start working again. Just something to look at. See if it is getting power. The morning mine failed I took my jumper cables from my battery straight to the motor to check my suspicions.

    Good Luck , shaun

    let me know what happened. Other guy I was plowing with this weekend had the same problem. Dropped it off at the dealer for him today. They think it was the filter screen for the hydros, seems to have been a problem lately they said

    talked to by buddy, check every single connection. the dealer claims there is a plug that is hidden that wiggles itself just loose enough to loose contact, but not enough to fall off. said this happened a few times, check it out
