Need quick winch help!
I was planning on going mudding tomorrow, and was gonna fill some tires up with my warn powerplant winch/compressor combo... but it wasn't working! neither was the winch. It worked perfect two weeks ago winching, and I've done nothing to it that i could think of (other than an emissions test today where they plugged something in... doubt thats it).

When i plugged in the remote, it made the usual sound it does when it turns on, then nothing after that. I checked the fuse behind the winch, and its fine. Car was on and everything.

My question is what is the problem, and how can i fix it quick?

thanks in advance for any help

Is the geartrain engaged?

yes, and i tried it with everything on and off just for good measure

What exactly is it doing? Is it making noise? Is the controller all the way in? Can you hear the solenoid click? Does it do anything at all?

Have you checked you connections, especially ground?

Do you know anyone with a Powerplant? Maybe you can swap remotes and rule that out.
