hey Guys,

So swapped my warn Provantage 2500 to my new quad. It worked fine then it starting having problems this winter. It will work, then just stop and click then work again. Sucks for plowing!

I took it out, cleaned all the connections, made sure everything was hooked up tight and same thing.

It is getting power to the solenoid fine, it just clicks at the solenoid. Sooo, need new solenoid or could it be something with the actual winch motor or the handlbar switch?

Thanks
Joe

So I think I got it working again.

Turned out to be the Solenoid. I took it apart and clean the porcelain "points".
Works now, so if it goes again, I will replace the Solenoid, but if anyone is having a clicking at the solenoid, that is probably the problem.

I did bench test the winch also as well as test the switch and solenoid separately to pinpoint the problem.

When mine was just clicking it was the handlebar switch.

All the Warn's I've ever dealt with have had an "overheat" protection shutoff. I believe its in the solenoid and shuts down when it gets warm to prevent damage.. While plowing Ive had winches on almost every machine I owned shut down on me. Some will not raise the plow, some will not let it out.. If I wait a few minutes it comes back again. My current Warn (Yamaha badged) 2500 winch is running off of a Runva 250 amp solenoid and it was Flawless this morning while plowing for an hour. the original Warn Solenoid leaked and corroded so I had to replace it. Bought the replacement at "Canada Winch.com" for about $45
