Aight I got a new motor, Hooked everything up right, hit the switches, and all i get is the silonoid clicking... So i cleaned up the ground cable, silionoids, and the rack, cuz i thought it might be a bad ground, Nope still dont turn, so i take the motor off open it up, and its as clean as a whistle, no dust and brushes look fine.. Its a prestolight motor, any one got any advice... Oh and sry if this shit been asked, just got no time for a search, need to get my shit going... Thanx for any advice.. need more info just ask..

just grab a 12v and jump start the motor and see if it goes. thats the easiest way to tell if its noid/wiring problems or not.

charge batteries....not enough voltage. Bateries may not be good, they need to carry a ton of amps or they wont spin the motor. The current draw brings the batteries down to looow voltage. Hit the switch, check battery voltage when hit. If it drops way down and nothing....its your batts.

you really need to load test your battery's. you can buy a cheap load tester for around $30, even if a battery looks good on a charger it can still be bad. and one bad battery in your series is going to cause you problems

....because the batteries might be the problem. by using the battery cables from your running car, you'll see if the motor actually spins when 12v are applied.



but yeh, load test your hydro batteries. even though they might show that they are charged....they still might be f*cked
