I am geting power to three of the four erminals on my soleniod when plow is hooked up. I replaced the solenoid and the same problem. I checked all fuses for the truck as well as the plow. Control has...


Not a lot to work with here so I'm going to have to make some assumptions, and may need some more info. I'm going to assume this solenoid operates a hydraulic pump motor for the plow. If it looks something like a ford starter relay there are two large terminals and two small ones. One large one is power from the source, the other is power out to the motor. The small ones control it one is the ground, and one comes from the controller. If you have power on both large terminals and the motor does not run you problem is down stream. Check the cable connection at the at the motor, and check your ground. If you have power to the motor and a good ground the motor is dead.

I think you have a problem with the plow motor grounding out. when you raise or turn plow in either direction you have to run the plow motor which is grounded out. ( as in hooking the ground and positive together directly ) the plow is on a gravity drop when you let it down by the weight itself and does not require the motor for the plow to operate. It's your plow motor or the positive feed to selonoids.

I have an 88 chevy blazer with a myers snow plow when i raise the plow all the lights go out and the motor gets real sluggish i have been trying to figure it out but cant can you help me please


snow plows use alot of juice check state of battery if battery good check altnernator output may need to go with higher amp alternator or add a second battery

first thing to do is clean all connections leading to plow power and grounds (all of them ) and make sure there tight clean battery cables as well

next thing i would do is have battery load tested as this is probley the main cause as alternaotr working so hard to keep up it takeing all power from motor

if battery test out ok replace alternator with higher amp alternator

if still have problem after all that add a second battery to truck

I have a meyer e47 snow plow and when i touch the up button it goes to the left. And when i go left or right it works left and right but it wont go up. Any ideas


I would check the hand control box it sounds to me like an electrical problem, if you know a dealer, plug in a new control box, this should narrow it down.

Not sure how to hook up plow motor to battery? Its an old fisher speedcast plow with cable controls thats electic over hydralic.It has pos and neg. cables and a solenoid on the pos. cable. I assume you...


The heavy + should be connected to the battery through the solenoid for the motor. There should be wires to control the solenoid (an electric switch, you know). The - goes to the truck's frame at a place of your choice. The ground must be solid, you know that, right?

I think if I were doing this install, I would hook the plow ground with the battery ground on the fame or where ever it is located.

The plow control should be mounted for your convenience inside the cab.

Lets review: Plow motor | ground to ground, hot to solenoid (motor side) | solenoid (battery side) to battery | solenoid control wires to cab.

Ele. drawing for 1999 GMC truck have wheel chair lift on back kills the battery


If I understand correctly, the chair lift is killing the battery. Convert the truck to a dual battery system. GM has such a kit including the battery box and cables.It bolts in. It's the same system they use on their diesel engined trucks and a lot of guys who plow snow hook it up to run the plow. It will run off your current alternator and the batteries work on parallel not a series circuit. Hope this helps.
