Based on your picture, you didn't get it installed or hooked up yet. But if you have it installed and connected and it gets no power, then you must have a bad cable or didn't connect it right. If you do have power at the winch and it just doesn't work, then you have a different problem but that's not what you said you have.

Make sure your neg goes to the neg post on the battery and not just to the frame or so.

Why has a mod not moved this thread yet?
