    Hey GUYS Need Some INSIGHT on this matter

    Motor on my plow went out last week so I replaced it. Went out yesterday to scrape my lot where I live. Started my truck and let it warm up about 5/10 min and then went out to start scraping my drive a little. Plow worked fine for about 10/15 min then all of sudden would not raise or move left or right.It will go down though. Selinoid under hood clicking and motor does run when switch is engaged. When motor was installed last week plow ran fine. Temp outside here has been about 13 to 17 degrees out for past couple days being plow does sit outside I have no garage.... One more thing I did replace hydro fluid with blue stuff. Please Help :help:

    So the motor does run??
    When you change the motor did you change the gasket as well??

    U might have moisture inside the pump housing. If you could get the plow in a warm place for a while, then try to operate the plow. If it moves in all directions, then possibility you have water in the fluid.

    If not try this;

    Check the connector in front of the grill.. Make sure it is all clean. If not, use battery cleaner
    spray both ends, let it sit for about a minute, try to clean around the pins, then blow it out with air.Put some electrical grease in both ends, put the connectors together, and try it.
