It took me a while to find these. Their existence and location have been described, but a picture is worth 1K words:

Remove the glovebox and find the harness labeled above; the wires are clearly labeled, and secured/obscured with electrical tape. Hope this helps!

I was starting to think my owners manual was lying to me until I found mine about as month ago.

I cannot find these for the life of me in my 97 tj...


Any idea what I could run my "arm" switch to for my winch.. I really do not want to run another wire all the way to the battery.. I was going to do the cig lighter but thats constantly ON.

Did you look right above the fuse box? I think mine were tucked into the heat duct.

Remove the glovebox and locate the wiring harness shown in the picture. The auxilliary power wires should be secured to the harness with black electrician's tape; you might have to dig for them.

I did that. I peeled off the tape and it appeared to me all wires were in there tight and I could not pull any out. I tried pulling on the blue wire but it as in there good.

Would the switched 3amp wire even be adequate enough for me to run to my "arm" switch for the winch?

The power requirements for the winch should be specified in the installation guide. Without auxilliary power wires, direct from the battery is probably gonna be your best bet; it's easily done, and the necessary wiring may be included with the winch.

OK... I took a shot at this and couldn't find them either on my '02. I located the wiring harness and, just as the previous poster noted, the wires located inside are tightly bundled together and un-labeled.

Just to clarify, are the auxiliary power wires INSIDE the harness or merely secured to it?

On my '01 Sport, the Auxilliary Power wires were secured to the main harness with black tape. The picture shows them freed up, and the labels exposed.
