    used the plow for two passes this morning and all of a sudden it would not raise, right or left. i fugured it was frozen so brought it home put a heater to it and then realized that the solinoid is clicking when i try to go up right or left. this is on a 79 gmc i have power to switches and too the solinoid but cant get or figure out if i have to pump motor. you guys sure helped me at the first of the month with a problem with my plow so if anybody has any insight i would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks so much for the help. went out and checked voltage at all points and everything checked out good. i started looking for a bad wire and found no ground whatsoever coming out of the back of the pump. but the cable going from motor to hot side of solinoid was in bad shape i tried to tighten it and kept trying the switch and viola it started working. will plow what i have to early morning and then go get a new cable. thanks again for the help and i hope our winter storm heads your way.
