Meyers E47 NO POWER.. help!


Senior Member
I have an old E47 I think... decal is rubbed off. Anyways.. I have no power. I hear the solinoid on the side fender clicking. I swaped it for a working one and still just clicking. This also happends with the truck running. I have 13.50 volts at the plow battery. I checked the black wire disconnect near the motor. I have 0 volts. I spliced in a new wire from the switch to the pump motor (black wire) still no power.
How do I check the switch. Oh it aslo just clickes when I hit the right/left switch also. Could my pump motor be bad?
Please help... The truck is stuck in the middle of my driveway.
Nice site.. I added it to my favorites.

You need to make sure that the motor is gettin 12v on the large wires. If it is , you more than likely have a bad motor. I have had a motor do this to me once and i "tapped" it with small hammer and it worked. The motor will get bad spots on the rotor and will not make good contact. When you tap it , it moves to a spot that does make good contact . As long as the motor does not stop on this spot again , you will be ok . Its a crap shoot , but a sign your motor is heading south. Please note i said "tap" and " small hammer" NOT beat the living $&% out of it with a 20lb sledge.

if you find that it is the motor you could probally get it rebuilt, or add some new brushes! But if I was you I would pull the ground wire going to the motor and the hot wire and clean the contacts well, or you could just bypass the relay and try to go directlty to the motor with a jumper cable, but I am not sure if this is recommended, I earlier had some up and down problems with my e47 and found that it was the switches, your best bet would be to get yourself a good tester and go from there!
