Sweet Brian-

I will take a pic of what I have and maybe we can go from there? All seems well, but I must be missing something and this is great detail. THANKS!

Bring this thing down to my place and we'll get it figured out. I have an 8274 we can compare against and I'm pretty good at trouble shooting electrical circuits. Or I can grab my ohm meter and come up to your place.

Hey Drew...stop by and grab my winch on your way down - Year + later on mine and it still doesn't work right (not that I've done much to try and fix it).

Wow, thanks for the offer! I have done lots of research and I feel like I can get after it now. I may end up replacing all teh solenoids if one is bad... I imagine after 35 years they may need some fresh ones in there to perform well. Nothing like counting on your winch as your last ditch recovery tool and having it fail on you, and I plan on lots of solo wheelin' this summer.

However, if I can't get it to work, I might come down bud, thanks agian!

Jeff-

What kind do you have, I'd be happy to look at it for you and chop parts off yours that mine needs

XD9000 and the problem is when you run it, it won't stop . Doesn't matter what you do with the control. If you push the switch to let line out, it starts reeling it in (yes, in) and won't turn off. If you push the switch to pull line in, it starts reeling it in and won't turn off. The only way to get it to shut off is to remove power by disconnecting it from the battery.

Warn's tech support said it was probably the controller. $60 and a new controller later it does the same thing. I need to pull the control box apart and see what I can figure out. Could be a solenoid I guess...I've wondered also if something didn't happy to the battery (I use the lugs on the front of the battery for the winch) but I'm not sure what could have happened that would cause other noticeable issues with the battery.

Based on my experience I plan to add a cutoff switch to the winch so I can turn the winch on and off without needing to remove a cable from the battery.

So I pulled the cover off the control box today, I had just a few minutes with the remote and a multi-meter.

There are obviously 4 soleniods. They are arranged like this, I will call them:

1 2
3 4


Here is what I know:

* I have good power to the winch 13v
* I have less than one ohm of resistance on each solenoid when activated. (each of them opened, in either the in or out direction, 1&4 would give the same reading, as 2&3 would give the same reading (full power 12.X volts) if the remote was in the opposite direction). I took these readings across the large terminals on each solenoid.
* I have good ground continuity to the chasis and the winch housing.
* I still just get a click and no movement when the remote is either in the IN or OUT position.
* When the solenoids are bypassed and the motor is jumped directly to the battery, the motor spins freely and strong.

What gives? Would a pic help?

Thanks!
