Here is the story.
I bought the used Cat in May.
The factory installed AC Warn 3500 did not work....took it apart and the armature was completely fried.
Called the Dealer I bought it from, he agreed to sell me another new out of the box winch for $200.00 (winch only) .
I installed it an it worked.
Yesterday I tried the winch....not go.... tested for power at the in out leads of the winch ...nothing.
Removed the winch....opened it and its a clean as a whistle.
Took a car battery.....grounded it to the frame of the uninstalled winch....and tried power to both the In and Out connections....had one little turn then nothing!!
Anything else I can do to test the winch itself before trouble shooting the cables and solenoid in the bike?
Did you check the winch contactor?
