Help Warn xd9000i

I just bought a TJ and the winch had no cable on it, I plugged in the remote and it made one click then nothing. With the winch engaged I can freely spin the drum, I bypassed the solenoid and it moves the drum very slightly then nothing. Same thing happens in both directions, I am pretty at working on stuff myself I just need a general direction to go in. Not sure where to go with it or just to look for a different winch, I would really like to fix to save the money of something new.

Hmmm - the "I bypassed the solenoid" make me curious - your winch control box has four solenoids, yes? If yes, two of them are activated for IN operation while the other two are activated for OUT operation. Unless you're sure you correctly bypassed them I'd suggest not doing so. It might be better to test the operation of the solenoids (individually).

Also, my winch had a similar condition - nearly no operation, just a click. For me it was a poor ground. Once I scraped paint for a clean ground connection all worked as desired.

Have you tried cleaning where the brushes make contact with the electric motor inside the winch? Mine would not work at all until I did this. I used a dremel tool to clean the motor until it was nice and shiny again. Unfortunately, I can only get it to work one way and am still working on it. Might help...just an idea.

Good luck!

So...now..
I thought one could take a jumper cable and hook one end of one cable to the pos post on the battery and take the other end and hook it to one of those 2 black wires going into the motor(I think I could tell you which one) and the winch will run, as long as the reason it is not running is the power box not the motor. Bypassing all the solenoids.

That's wrong?

I have not tried it as my winch runs fine(knock on wood).
