    I just bought a used Hiniker C plow. Ran all the wiring on the truck hooked up to the plow and I get no action on the plow. Selinod clicks and controler clicks but nothin with the plow.

    What should I start checking? How can I check the motor or pump to see if they are good or not?

    do you have a spare solenoid? clicking doesn't guarantee that it is good. try swapping it out (with the power disconnected). also check all fuses and wiring. also unplug and replug in the main harness wire/s and use some dielectric grease on the connector if you have it. also be sure to check the fluid level as well. Also a must: disconnect both battery terminals and clean them good; try to wire brush both the post and the clamp. I usually coat the terminals with a light dab of grease or light oil if I don't have the corrosion preventer on hand.

    Thanks....I got it fixed. Had some bad connections. Got everything up and running just in time for the big snow.
