Winch on my ATV works and then it doesn't. Wait a while and it works again! Can't seem to find a loose connection ? Any ideas??

Don't know what kind of winch it is but maybe it's getting hot. If there's a thermal snap switch inside it would open at a certain temp and then close once it cools down. Just an thought.

intermittent winch problem

Thanks for the leads. It will give me something to start with. It doesn't appear the solenoid kicks in but I'll have to wait until it fails again. Usually after lowering and raising the snowblade is when it appears to fail. It has never failed me any other time.

....... yeah right.


Only problems I've ever had have been with both of my Ramsey winches. A Warn 2000, and two 2500's have worked flawless for me. Warn wrote the book when it comes to winches; maybe I'm just harder on my stuff than other people but in my experience Warn has never let me down. The only other winch I am going to try is the Mile Marker. It has the same drive system as the Warn. I've heard it's slow and kind of noisy but has tons of power.
