Lastly, will the multifunction tester test the solenoid? Still reading instructions on the tester sorry....

On the motor there are 2 nuts per terminal, the lower one you hold in place with an open end wrench so the terminal stud doesnít turn, and the top nut you can remove with a tool of your choice. If you donít hold the bottom nut and the terminal stud twists it can break itís connection inside the motor. That is always the way to do it and stated that way everywhere on BGW or on any motor or connection similar for future reference. As far as testing the fuse, youíd use your multi-meter on Ohms setting. Test your meter leads by touching them together first and see that the meter goes to Zero. It should do the same thing when touching both ends of the fuse once pulled out from the holder. Also since you now have your meter I still would like to know what your pack voltage is taking it from the batteries shown in the picture attached. You also need to test the resistor that is on the solenoid. In one of your pictures it looked like it was bent up from itís normal position. Using the ohm meter again see what the resistor reads when your vehicle is in the tow position. Does it show an amount higher than zero on your gauge?

Okay... Pack voltage was 50.9

Solenoid was 0.17 (tested the two little prongs that attach the small wires to solenoid not the nuts that screw in wire lugs)

Fuse was good.

Scuba,

Im sorry if it sounded like i was being snarky or sounded like I was saying you were wrong to tell me to use two wrenches. I didn't mean it to sound that way. I was genuinely saying I had never seen or heard that and therefore did it with a socket wrench only out of innocence. I do not doubt you have told me the right way. I am nowhere near a "know it all" and genuinely appreciate and need yall's help. That being said I have a tester and will do whatever you tell me to do to help diagnose this puppy. Thanks!

The correct way, with two wrenches:

Okay so I definitely did NOT do it that way. How do I check to see if I "screwed up" a terminal? My attempt at a little humor as I realize I have probably done more damage than good in this project....

I know there is a test to measure continuity across certain terminals. but I'm not sure of the exact instructions. Someone else is gonna have to provide that one.

Update:

So I talked to Tahoedawgz71 for about 20 minutes and he walked me through several tests. The problem seems to be with the controller itself but the controller does not appear to be bad. The green circuit board that is exposed on top of the alltrax controller has a small piece that is broken. How that happened who knows, but it is a delicate little piece on the circuit board. We figure that this is the problem and I will be taking it to an electrical shop to see if I can get it fixed if it is not covered under warranty.

A big thanks to David. He was very helpful and knowledgeable as well as friendly!

I thought I would give another update and brag about the customer service I just received from Alltrax. WOW! First class. I called and told them I had a broken circuit. He had me explain to him where it was and called it a transistor. He then said okay Clark, what is your address? I gave it. He said you have a new circuit board on the way, unscrew the old one and pop in the new one. I asked if it would fix the problem and he said he didn't know but if it was broke it won't be for long and then we will know! Thanks alltrax.

Perfect Example

But I don't know... those hands look a little to clean to me... was that a photo op for an album on HOW TO?!?!?!

BD... I'm not upset... only wanted to make sure you were on the right track. If you're talking with David you're in excellent hands... he also knows the proper procedure to check out your motor terminals if it comes to that
