Wiring finished, no solenoid click?

    Okay, so I got my harness all wired up. But, I don't have a plow or mount to check it on. All I know as of now is that the controller lights up, the headlight toggle switches from plow to truck lights. My only concern is that when I press up down left and right on my controller, it doesn't make the solenoid click.. Is that right?

    Update, I had a loose connection, and bam solenoid is clicking. When you press down on the controller should the solenoid click? The control goes red into float, but I don't hear a click.

    I don't think it clicks. I can't remember for sure so hopefully a few others will chime in.

    The 12volt motor solenoid should not click though a valve on the plow should. Doubt you'd hear it from the cab though.
