winch wiring

Recommended Posts

I noticed in the pictures that my new trooper has been factory wired for a winch. My wife is gonna get me a winch for christmas and I was wondering when the factory wires the trooper up do they put a winch solnoid on it or do I have to wire the one in that come with the winch. It appears that all I will have to do is run a negative and positive wire directly to the posts on the winch. Sorry if this is a dumb question

Hey Hi there! Congrats on the Trooper...As long as she buys the right winch.....Cause I believe the switch in the dash is pre-wired in the trooper correct? Mine was already on it so I am not sure...I do know that there are 3 wires from the dash switch and I had cut the plug off mine because the cause one of the pins broke so I just hardwired it to a warn using the control box off Chinas winch .. So if you get a say warn or something you will most likely have to cut the plug off out at the end if you want the in dash switch to work the winch. If you are using the remote wire that comes with your new winch one then you will do nothing besides hook up the + - and your done.......I can say that somewhere along the install from the factory the wiring changed in the solenoid box cause I had to reverse the wiring to get mine to run the winch in the right direction ...That was using the winch solenoid set up off the factory China winch...Hope any of this rambling helps you....Guys if any of this is incorrect please let me know....

My factory winch is 3500lb rated i believe because i see the sticker "3500" on winch itself but i plan on using that until it burns out then ill go harbor freight and buy their 5000lb atv winch for $150/200 something then ill remove the factory switch it's nice but also hard to use when you are on your own....so my next winch will have two ways to operate it...wirelessly or wired long reach remote and an switch on dash.

I had to winch myself out all on my own once it was hell i wished i was that rubber stretchy guy from fantastic four lol

That's my 2 cents.

Hey I can help factory winch sucks especially if u get real stuck if cant do it!!! I got a champion 4800lb winch from this place called tractor supply. It was 225$ I think with year warranty came with remote with built in solenoid I used factory cables that were prewired on my t2 disconnected factory switch! The winch has a real easy to use free spool lever and came with a pull sash and roller fair leads to keep cable straight while winching. The winch all the way out wich is 40-50 feet with 5 wraps around the barrel is rated for 2500lbs. It's a little over kill but I love it and it works easy and awsome

I don't used the switch on the dash I use the wire remote. I have a 4500 lbs on a winch cradle with quick disconnect coupling so I can use it up front or rear

Your cradle plug into rear hitch mount receiver right?

I'm curious how u mounted the cradle on front? I wanted to do the same thing but I'm not sure how to mount to front other than adding another hitch receiver in front.

Is that what you did?

Yes the winch cradle goes into the back receiver. I also had the winch behind the plastic piece too I took out the old winch and made a 1/2" steel plate that was the same shape as of the steel plate that the winch bolts down to and welded a 2" receiver on it and bolted it down. I ran #4 welding cables to the quick disconnect coupling I used the ANDERSON CONNECTOR 600V KIT SB 175 SERIES 175 AMP 4 GA They work great

Great idea, so now winch stick out of front all the time unless u moved it to rear or took it off right?

Do it hurt your approach angles with it sticking out if it is sticking out of plastic piece

      Hey guys! Newbie here. I'm an old man who's better with plowing a mule (4-legged kind) than these newfangled beasts. I, and a friend of mine, just bought new Coleman sxs and are having to finish the assembly. I've been reading on this site and I'm falling on the mercy of you experts. The only way I'm an expert is that an "ex" is a has been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure. LOL First off, the 2 buggies have no ignition switches. They seem to mount on the dash, not the opening in the steering wheel shaft cover, so we ordered new ones that are supposed to fit. They are 8 inches long, and have a 4-wired white plugin which is slightly rectangled when looking at the end of the plug. The trouble is there's nothing to plug into. There is a three-wire grey plug close enough to reach the four-wire plug, but of course, they are not compatible. 
      Secondly, the blinker, light, ect. unit on steering wheel just spins around when touched. I see no way in heaven or earth to secure it. I've looked at a diagram on the Powersports site, but can't detect how it mounted. Fellows I'd be so grateful for any help with this. Me and my mule will even plow your garden for free, for your help. LOL

      4 years ago, I suffered 11 strokes, and am now 50% paralyzed on the left side of my body. I am unable to work a normal job anymore. I was working on the sled 2 years before this all unraveled. My wife told me to keep working on it since i was pissing her off staying home and doing nothing.
      I still plan on improving and implementing different ideas as the product’s revenue continues to grow.

      Greetings from Southern Illinois. My name is Bruce and I currently have a Hisun HS550 Performance Rural King. I have had nothing but problems with this unit replaced so many parts of it and of course, it stopped working and will not start again for about the 3rd or 4th time since 2018 it only has a little over 500 miles and has cost me a bunch of money and headache and the Rural King where I purchased it has a repair man who is certified to work on HISUN but he charged me a little over $600 to repair it once back a few years ago and when I got it home after it being in his shop for over 2 weeks the thing worked for a very short time but when I went to start it the next day it was the same thing and they wouldn't check it further without me paying for service, labor, and parts and I went around and around with them and since there aren't any dealer service centers for Hisun near me and even most of them can't get to it for weeks to months and it could be at their shops for months as they tell me they have problems getting the parts needed from Hisun to fix these giant paper weights. Oh, and you can't buy a scan tool (code reader) Delphi 190121 unless you are one of their dealers and I can't find any other scanner tool that works with it except the Tiny Scan Tool which I purchased and it will work if I could find the correct adaptor cable and connector to connect the Tiny Scan to the diagnostic port on the Hisun HS550 Performance Rural King. Yep, I pretty much have been screwed every which way that can happen with this machine. I am disabled, have cancer, and am on a fixed income so I need help if anyone knows what the connector is called (type or part name) that will plug into the diagnostic port to get my scanner to work it is a 6-pin connector and I hear it only has to have 3 wires connected to it.
      Thanks

      I have a  3500LB Winch that only runs in one direction.  Inward but not Out.  Replaced the solenoid module.  Makes "click" when I push the "Out" button and the motor tries to spool out but then stops and begins to "click".   Does anyone have suggestions what I should try next?
