If anyone could help with some suggestions. I went to raise my rear end up, and the solenoids just clicked, my front end still works, i tried running a jumper wire from the batteries directly to the solenoids, and they continued to click, then I tried running a jumper wire directly to the pump and all it did was spark. I'm thinking that I might have just locked my solenoids up, but I was wondering if anyone might think it's something different and could give some suggestions. Thanks

if you used a heavy jumper cable and touched it on the motor firmly,
there is either something stopping the motor turning or the motor is dead
take the motor off the pump and see if it spins ok

if it does

check the pump head to see if it spins ok

I would say one of the soleniods or wiring to the soleniod is bad. Check the ground on both your soleniods and pump. I would use a volt meter to test them. You will experience a spark trying to connect the power directly to the pump motor, but if you hold it after it sparks does the motor turn?

You said "i tried running a jumper wire from the batteries directly to the solenoids"... your power cable should be directly connected to the solenoids, unless you mean you ran it in between each soleniod to by-pass the one before it.

Check your 24volt jumpers (the small wires from the switch box) from one soleniod to the next, maybe one of them fell off not triggering the middle/last soleniod in the series.

thanks for the help homies, I just switched the wire for my front solenoids to my rear pump, and it still worked, so all it was, was the solenoids. Thanks to all ya'll who replied. :biggrin:
