SOURCE: stalling when going from R to D while plowing snow

It sounds like your draining your battery with all the accessories. It could be a loose alternator belt or that the belt is just getting wet and slipping or your alternator is not up to the job!
Try going to a good auto parts store like Advanced Auto and ask them if this could be the problem. They may be able to swap up your alternator to one that can handle the load!
Good Luck!

I have a blizzard 7600lt plow. Everything else functions like it should but plow will not lower


There is a solenoid switch that controls this function. Look for a loose or broken wire going to it.

When i try to lift or angle my plow all i get is a clicking sound when i push the lift button and when i let up on the button the moter on the hydrolic unit will click but will not move the plow. minute...


Not familiar with model, but valves click at the same time motor is suppose to run. Check power and ground to motor (or try running it with jumper cables, but don't be where plow can angle and squish you. If good power but won't spin, clean brushes/commutator/check bearings in motor.

2002 cadillac escalade service stability light came on after driving through deep snow


There are 4 sensors in each wheel , driving on hard old snow could cost damage to anything under car , the first thing I would check Is to see if they are all intact , second I would check if the are where the sensors are clear of any obstructions , check that are pulled broken , there other more tests to be done if the light still there , but it would require a multimeter and a lift to this , by testing unplugging each sensor and testing sensor resistance , while spinning the wheel you should have At least three the same resistance if one is bad it will have give either two much resistance or no resistance at all .
note :- this is just a general idea in what to look for , I didn't technically or physicllay looked at your vehicle and its spec's please becareful web working under car , car must be secured for your Saftey , good luck

Battery disconnect switch not turning on & off properly


i am a tech at a ford dealership. it sounds like you have a short some wheres around your steering column that maybe what we call "backfeeding" to other systems. the area where the tilt is on the steering column is a good place to check. also remote starters can cause alot of havoc on a vehicle.

I have a 1993 Acura Legend. The car started and ran fine until I jacked up the drivers side to remove a flat tire. After replacing the flat with the spare and lowering the car back down the starter now...


Hi, I'm going to guess your solenoid is bad, and this may be affecting the shifter. Another possibility is a bad stop light switch switch, but I don't think that should affect the starter. What it looks like to me is maybe the solenoid is shorted and thereby starving the voltage to the brake check circuit. Unfortunately I do not know how that circuit works, as it show only as a black box on the diagram.
Here is what I recommend you try: First set the parking brake, then disconnect the start wire from the solenoid but leave the main power/battery wire connected. Next use a screwdriver to momentarily connect the battery terminal of the solenoid to the start terminal. If the starter turns, the solenoid is good. If all you get is sparks, replace the solenoid. With the start wire still disconnected from the solenoid (and not touching anything), see if the shifter will come out of park (key on and foot on brake). If not, you may need to replace the stop light switch above the brake pedal. I'm betting this will not be necessary, as a shorted solenoid will also short that brake check circuit. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Dodge Ram 1500 can it have a plow?


if you do it do it at the dealer that you got it from so it wont void the warranty. that way you keep it in place and they can also tell you the specifications as to what you need to do ,if anything to the front of the truck
