Yesterday my Warn front and rear wiring kits came from Summit Racing. Since My CBI front hitch is due to be delivered today, I focused on the rear yesterday. My current winch is a Warn 8000i on an external receiver. I ran the power cables from the rear, mounted the switch solenoid and got all the wires run and connected to the solenoid. The switch is mounted and plugged in. I just need to ground the switch and splice the hot wire to the ignition with the provided clip lock.
This is the third truck this winch has been on, but it's the first time I've run wires to the rear and the first time using a solenoid and switch. They've always just been wired directly to the battery.
How do I know which wire to splice into? I'm guessing the purpose is so the switch (and therefor the winch) won't work with the key off. Suggestions?
