SOURCE: not sure how to hook up plow motor to battery? Its

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.

SOURCE: my plow will not go

Sounds like battery cable problems. The motor for the pump comes on anytime you pust a button and the pump makes pressure that goes thoegh a soliniod valve that you selected with the switch. The motor itself might be bad or the wire connected to it is'nt making, of course the salt and ther things plowed wreack havac witht he wire connections and get right into the motor. Useing a test light and a helper being careful if the plow were to move that you can get out of the way of it's motion. there's a power wire on the motor touch the test light to the connection and see if hitting the switch lights the light. This connection right at the motor is most likly and then ther connection at the battery. The control gets it's power from key on power but the motor gets it's power from the battery though the soliods relay. The power is getting to the motors connection you might knock on the motor with the power on. It's safer to do this with a jumper cable the motor should run if touched with a hot cable. remember be out of harms way as the plow can move and get you. Cleaning all the connections of the big battery cables will likly fix it if the motors good and the soioids are clicking and their wires are connected cleanly.

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.

HOW TO GET WESTERN SNOW PLOW TO GO LEFT AND RIGHT


Hydraulic fluid doesn't really freeze. When it does, we wouldn't be around to see it. You need to go threw electrical. Go to there web site and see if you can get a diagram for it. Old systems are fairly easy to go threw. Newer ones have PC boards. Older ones, the stick/switches go bad first. But it always wise to loosen, then tighten the nuts that hold wires first. Corrosion sets in because it isn't used for so long.

I can hear my fisher plow motor but the plow will not lift or angle


There solinoids on pump. Check wiring and grounds. Make sure all small wires are intact and in good condition. But most likely there's a loose corroded or green wire causing issue

check the wiring connections on the plow solenoids to be sure they are correct, the second step is check the controller box, using a continuity check via multimeter set for DC voltage. I have an old western plow that had similar symptoms, and was the controller box.

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.
