    I have a Hiniker C-PLow and the motor is not working; the plow does not go up, down or sideways. I do here clicking at the relays on the firewall.
    I ran a pair of jumper cables from the battery to the motor and when touching ground, there were multiple sparks with no movement from the motor.
    I checked to make sure that + went to + and - to - and still getting sparks when touching to ground.
    Does this mean there is a short in the motor and it's cooked?
    Thanx for your help.

    Sounds like a new motor may be in your future. Wouldn't hurt to pull the motor off the pump, check for obvious failures & bench test it. Might just need brushes or a bit of soldering broken contacts.
    Try dbelectrical.com for replacement motors. A guy I work with says they're good (& cheap).
