If one of the solenoids is failing, I wonder how healthy the rest of them are. It might be worth replacing the entire solenoid pack with either a new one or a used one that works. Do a bit of web searching and you might find the whole package at a decent price. I doubt the individual solenoids ever go on sale.

Finally had a few hours to get after my winch and finally fixed it!

It wasn't a solenoid, but one of the main motor lugs was loose. There is a stud that the 2 gauge wire is bolted to on the motor housing that was/is loose. There are three total, one farthest from the gear housing (im assuming ground)and two more (I'm assuming positive directions) near the gear housing. This lug spins in the housing... The others didn't seem to, thoughts?

Either way, my winch is ALIVE!!!

Welcome to my life bro!

I knew I would really dig into once I needed it... but I was trying to avoid fixing it on the trail while my 40 sank deeper and deeper into the mud! I did learn how to bypass the solenoids to get it to spool with jumper cables... good enough right! I can see recovering the 40 while grabbing the winch with cables.
