Finding keyed cable for winch switch

Hi,
I'm trying to install my new Viper 2500 on my 2009 Grizzly 550. I saw some pictures on here where they tapped into a wire going into a small white connector. I took the white connector apart and put my red volt meter pin into both pins inside the connector and never got anything on my meter.
I'll try to paste a picture of the connector I tried tapping into. Maybe I'm not using my volt meter correctly.
Thanks for any help.

Go to your key and follow the wires one is constant other is hot when key it turned on, then splice that wire that's only hot when key is on. I believe mine was brown wire

I just wired mine into the cigt aux wire which is hot when the switch is on so i wouldn't mesh up anything if i blew a fuse it wouldn't affect the switch circuit.

Thanks for the help guys.
I had the right wire just not realized that the power is coming into the connector not out of it. When I stripped the wire and tested it it came up gold.

Funny - I just went through the same thing today. I bought an inexpensive tester at Pep Boys - poked the white wire with black stripe... with ignition off - no power. With ignition on, power. You got the right wire...

I mounted by contactor left of the battery since I don't have power steering. Tomorrow I'll make short cables to run from the battery to the contactor. And may shorten other cables since all is mounted up close.

I positioned the plugin for the wired remote on the right side of the hull, to the left of the ignition switch.
