    All I here is clicking from the relay inside the hood, but the plow will not move. All the conections are tight. Do I need a new relay?

    jump the relay. if it goes up, the relay is bad. if it don't go up, you have a wiring problem like a bad ground, bad relay to motor feed, or bad motor. my money is on a bad wire.

    Take all the connectors off of your solenoid. Label each one first. Get a wire brush and clean all the connectors off. Make sure you have a good connection and that the fire wall is cleaned also. If that doesn't work make a jumper wire and touch it from the postive side of the solenoid to the motor and see what happens. If it moves up the replace the solenoid.

    I would still clean those connections off. I see they are turning green which will turn into corrosion soon.

    Or go get another solenoid.. They are pretty cheap and use your old one as a back up.

    Here are pics of the new motor and everything covered with corrosion protection. New motor was about $160
