Quadratec Q9000 in cab wiring control

I am in the process of buying a Quadratec Q9000 winch and I want to wire the solenoid inside the engine bay then wire an in cab toggle switch to control the winch.

I know where to get the kits from 12v guy and mce but my question is does anyone know or have wired one of these kits to the q series?

A diagram or pic would help but I'll take whatever I can get.

Thanks

If their remote controller is like most of the others, it and the jack it connects to has 3 wires and a SPDT (single-pole, double-throw) switch. One wire is common which would go to the SPDT's center lug. The other two SPDT connector lugs will attach to the other two wires. The SPDT switch connects the center lug alternately to the other two lugs, which will be for the winch's In and Out directions.

Warn uses a 5 wire control system but all of the winches from China I have seen make do with 3 wires... common, in, and out.

I'll keep that in mind, thx. Im hoping there is some sort wiring diagram in the box but I did talk to Quadratec and they said they do not have a skematic of the solenoid for this purpose of wiring.

I did this with my engo, like Jerry said it's 3 wires. You can use a straight up extension cord from the solenoid to the switches. That keeps it pre-bundled and water resistant. I will say this, don't buy the crappy switches from an auto store mine have broken and i used them twice, buy it from otrattw. I haven't installed yet but they are supposed to fit in your factory dash spots. I just received them they appear very well made.

Ok sounds easy enough. I think I got it. I'm hoping the q series is the 3 wire. I'm ordering it in a week or two.

Did you find out if it is a 3 wire?

Hey Jerry-

Do you know if the vr8000 has the 3 or 5 wire set up? I have been considering this as a worthwhile upgrade.

All of Warn's winches produced in the past 15 years or so use 5-wire controller circuits. The extra two wires bring the solenoid's ground connection out through the remote control. That way the solenoid's ground connections can be quickly removed in an emergency by simply unplugging the remote which will de-energize the solenoids.

The only way to use a SPDT switch with a Warn is if you give the solenoid circuit a direct/permanent ground connection like they had before they converted to the safer 5-way control circuit.

If you use a DPDT switch, you can maintain the 5-wire control circuit. Simply use the other side of the DPDT switch to connect (control) the solenoid's ground circuit.

Just a consideration: When my buddy wired his in cab switch, he wired in a hidden secondary on/off switch. This was to prevent accidentally winch activation, especially when his kids are playing inside the Jeep "pretending to drive"...and flipping on and off every visible switch. LOL

That would suck going down the road and have the cable start letting out.

I finally ordered it for my MOAB trip at the end of May. I never found out if it is 5 or 3 pin but I think it is 3 pin. I will find out when it gets here.

That is probably how I would want to to set it up. Have a master power switch with a separate control switch that has to be energized from the master power switch.

That is the similar idea behind 12voltguys system/plate. I'm going with that setup. A rocker switch with a cover then monetary buttons for in and out. I might just order his prefabbed product and be done with it.

Ok, finally ordered the winch and it arrived. It is a 4 pin one pin being a ground. I'm in the process of making my own plate and using left over wire in the garage for the in cab controls

I just recently just got the Q9500i winch and want to add in cab controls did you ever figure out which color wires on the solenoid were the in and out wires. There are four wires yellow/green blue, brown, and black. The yellow/green appears to be the power wire and the black looks like the ground, I'm not sure if this is right and which of the other to wires are the in and out.

Thanks

I think it was blue in and brown out. They are just directional and if you reverse them it won't matter as far as wrecking anything just swap them around. I had then backwards at first and then swapped them around and ever thing worked fine.

Just got mine in the mail yesterday, plan to mount to my xrc bumper this weekend. Found video on bleepinjeep that had the same concept as Dextreme was outlining.



This video outlines it pretty well. Pics to come!
