Both are fed right from the battery. Check all main battery wires and fuses. Ground wire too. pull on wires going into connectors and terminal lugs for tightness. Follow main battery wire to starter solenoid and and winch, fully inspect where they go and find a common link, that's where you will find the problem.

Sportsman 500 will not fire


It seems to me that you may have a battery that is ready for retirement. I'd suggest putting a new battery in it first of all.

I had a simular problem with my 99 sportsman 500 and it turned out to be my pulse coil somehow became out of alinement. The pulse coil air gap should be between0.016 to 0.040 inch, But I would start by checking the coil it should read 0.3 to 0.5 ohms. Good luck and hope this helps
