Dear Lawnie,
If you have a plow, that tells me you live where it i cold.
If so, perhaps you have salt used on roads and highways.
That salt can damage your plow, as well as your vehicle.
I think you may have salt or rust damage that is slowing down your pump.
If not, I would suspect one or more of your joints is freezing up.
Unfortunately, I think your plow may not have nuts & bolts to take it all apart and check each and every joint.
Many parts are probably welded together.
See if you can isolate the "stiff" joint or the pump itself for replacement.
God bless your efforts.

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.

On my 1997 gmc truck when plow light switch is turned on one truck headlight goes out and plow light on that side comes on but other truck headlight stays on and that plow light does not come on..


This is just an idea, I may be wrong but any input is helpful, right? I would think that the switch that controls the plow lights is designed to alternate between the circuits for the truck light and the plow light. If the trucks headlight switch is turned on then the circuit is closed and turnes on the light. When the plow light switch is turned on it may cut the hot side of the circuit going to the headlight and engage the hot wire to the plow light. The headlight and plow light may share a common ground. If they don't share a common ground then the plow switch may cut the ground wire opening the circuit. If you can't find a solution you can always wire the plow lights directly to the battery with the same switch or a new toggle switch and then turn on the parking lights only on the truck. On most GM cars and trucks there is a space in the fuse pannel that is for a power accesory. It is basically a fuse slot that is empty labeled ACC. This is a 12V hot power source and you would run the positive wire here then ground the neg to the chassis. This way if you forget to shut off the toggle it will cut the hot when the key is shut off. When running the wire it is near the hood release able and you may be able to run the wire thru there and not drill a new hole. I've done this for neon lights under cars as well as stereo systems requiring an amplifier. If you drill a new hole even though its under the hood I would put a little blue RTV silicone over the new hole to prevent moisture from getting past the fire wall or road salt.

Snow plows


Did you bleed the air out of the system?
Also your lights will dim when running the pump. I dont know off hand how many amps it draws but
it is enough to dim your lites. that problem is normal..
Only other thing I can think of is the cable running from your battery to your pump a battery cable or a thin wire. It should be a heavy 0 gauge wire or you
wont get enough amps to run the pump to its max

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.

No Power to Fuel pump


I would check the ground for the fuel pump relay that operates the switch side of the relay.
You should have 2 12v inputs to the relay. When the relay gets 12v input, it closes the relay switch on the heavy current side that sends 12v to the fuel pump.

A relay is needed because you don't want heavy current going through the switch.

Also, most cars only run the fuel pump for 2 seconds when the key is turned on because you don't want the fuel pump running without the car running. If you listen closely at the fuel tank, you should hear the pump run for 2 seconds when you turn the key to "ON"
When the key is turned to "START", the fuel pump should run continuously.
The engine computer tells the fuel pump to shut off if the engine rpms are zero.
So, I would check the switch side of the relay. Power amd ground.
