So after my last jeep outing I finally got to use my winch (ENGO9k), but to no avail. With no load, as I spooled in the slack on the cable the wire going to the battery ground were getting insanely hot.
In a rush for time, I removed all the cable from the winch and continued to recover my friend.
As I sit here in my garage I fixed the small ground wire and after a couple sparks at the battery terminal, the winch to begin to power in faster(no more sparks), again with no load, but the ground wire to the battery is still getting very hot....
What is going on here?? The wires are approx. 48" long and maybe 4ga terminal battery cable from the winch to batt.
