My winch will work going in but nothing going out? Wondered what it could be? Is the forward and reverse on two different wires? I'm wondering if a wire came loose in the back?

There are solenoids that control which way the winch turns. It sounds like one of the solenoids is bad. You can use a test light to see if you are getting power to both sides of the motor. If you key the controller for in and the light glows the solenoid is good. If the light stays out normally it would be a solenoid.

My winch Will Not Let Out, but it will come in. It is a warn winch. I have a 1982 Chevy pickup with the duck tail on it with slide out ramps.

There can be a couple things keeping the winch from powering out. the first thing is to check that the remote switch is not faulty. the easiest way to test it is with a continuity tester or borrow one from a buddy. if not the remote you may have a bad solenoid in the winch.Thank You
In 1948, Arthur Warn founded Warn Industries to construct locking hubs for surplus World War II Jeeps. Ten years later, the Warn winch was manufactured to fill the need for a reliable recovery tool to aid off-roaders stuck in challenging situations. Since then, Warn has grown to offer a wide range of gear with the hallmarks of durability and affordability. 1988 spawned the aftermarket industry's first ATV winch and today their PowerSports line of winches ranks among the most esteemed in the industry and jeepers call on Warn for electric, hydraulic and severe duty components that get the job done.
