Will not crank over to start and nothing electrical works. Just installed a new battery. What can cause this problem? It was working fine when parked 3 weeks ago.


Test the battery with a voltmeter, if good, check connection to battery. Has to have a real good ground.

Is there a free wiring diagram that show what wire to connect my new winch to


Red is POSITIVE.
Connect to + terminal of battery.
Your winch should be equipped with a fuse.
Do not connect to any of your wiring except battery side of solenoid PROVIDED wire is same gauge or bigger (thickness) than winch wire.
Connect Black to frame or negative battery terminal.

My 1997 kawasaki 400 pirarie will not show any sign of life when i turn the key like No lights to neatrul light nothing only thing that will work is my winch any suggestions?


Look for a fuse where the postive cable comes from the battery going to the starter relay - this fuse (like a 10 or 15 amp box fuse) allows all the electrical to basically go to the bike. When it blows - no ignition, but the bike will usually pull start. - Your winch is probably still working because usually - it's hooked up straight to your battery. if that's not it - let me know and I can help you troubleshoot it - all the best

Ever time i use my winch it kill the motor


Might have corroded battery terminals which would cause the alternator to be loaded from the current demand from the winch that it is killing the engine.

Try cleaning all battery connections and if that doesn't work, your battery may not be able to handle the current surge of the winch due to age.

2007 Polaris sportsman 700 EFI and am trying to install a superwinch t2000 on it. I have the winch on already but my problem is it had one on that was wrecked and the switch was gone. My question is on the...


This winch should simple straight foward hook up. Your big red & black wires should hook straight to your battery. Red (+) black (-) if there is no fuse on the wires put at least a 20 amp.fuse close to your battery. These are the main power suply. They will go in a.small black box. Also coming out of the black box will be the wires that run to the cable in & out switch.and there should be one heavy ga. Wire going to the winch motor. Make sure the wire is good and clean when you hook it to the winch motor. Do not over tighten the nut . Just give a good snuging down. As for your solenoid box. That should be the little black box that your main power wires go into and controle wires come out of..

Was installing a winch on my 2009 prowler 700 xtx hooked positive cable to selanoid winch did not work,hooked direct to battery,works,rig wont start


Where did you ground the winch motor? You need a separate, heavy duty, switch with a relay to transfer the positive side voltage properly... DO NOT ground to the battery..use a clean, free of paint, place to ground. You may have fried the solenoid..do not connect the positive side to the solenoid. Direct connection to the + battery from the relay is good with a good waterproof fuse in line. Sometimes I have seen the "maint. free" batteries die when used "wrong" and still show 13 volts+.

Warn winch 2006 Suzuki Eiger Winch will retract cable but will not extend cable


Use a test light at the contactor to see if the switch and wiring are good.If you see an input from the switch up to the contactor,make sure the connections are all clean on the control input terminals at the contactor.(The contactor is the device that changes the polarity of 12V to the winch to extend or retract-essentially a double throw double pole relay).
