    Plow would not go up down left or right. Finally got it to move but would stick on. Installed brand new Fisher Solenoid last night, this morning battery was dead. Engine wouldn't even turn over. I have a remote starter too but have never had a problem before. Charged the battery but engine still won't turn over. Is battery too dead? It's only 2 years old. Help!

    Put the charger on the battery for 5 hours. Battery looks like it has plenty of juice (voltometer in truck shows full power). Lights, radio, etc working fine. Engine won't turn over. Don't think it's the starter as it showed no signs of problems the day before.
