    Going out on a limb here, but I'm going to say the Solonoid isn't the problem. Is there plenty of fluid, did change fluids recently b4 or after storage?

    IF it's a black motor then you could have snapped the gears in the pump unit.

    If you get no movement when you hit the control and just the motor runs then that's probably it.

    I have not changed the fluid i was planning on doing that when i took it out in the fall. I've been looking at it and i think its a ground problem the electrical harness has been nothing but problems. i'm going to get some fluid and change them out anyways. i just traded the truck in and now the plow wont work so i can't take the truck in yet:gunsfiring:

    thanks guys!

    does the motor sound normal , or if when u activate it....does it seem to "bog down" high speed pitch? low spped pitch? does the motor spped change after the first 1 or 2 seconds.....any other fuctions left right?
