I think talking with the people from Warn like suggested above would be a good start. If a solenoid needs replaced, it shouldn't take much more than a screwdriver and/or wrench and a few minutes.

It probably looks like this under the cover. You can see I had my solenoid cable connectors off while replacing one of its four solenoids years ago.

In case it is a bad solenoid, here's a good source for them... DB Electrical - Winch-Golf Cart

Looks like that's an XD9000 that was painted, by the way.

Pretty sweet color - not! I guess it is unique... Thanks so much! I think I might call sometime.

Old Warn Winch Issues

Hello all,

I have an old warn winch that came with an '01 TJ I recently purchased. When I went to test it out, I plugged in the controller and I only heard a small click - nothing else. The connection to the car battery seems okay, so what could be the problem? One of the prongs on the controller seems out of alignment (see picture) could that be it?

Also, is it worth getting this fixed, or finding a newer winch to replace it with?
