    Anyone have a diagram to wire this thing up for a in-cab switch. I have searched and found the diagrams for the 3 wire setups but not for I think mine has 5 going to the remote.

    Need to know how to wire it to the solinoids, and then to the switch. I plan to have one switch control power on/off the other will be in/off/out.

    Ok, here is the rundown on what I did. I bought a black extension cord of XX length (can't remember how long it was), and cut both ends off. And I also bought one of those 4-prong flat trailer connectors (male and female side). You'll see why in a minute.

    Here is the connection at the control pack:
    [​IMG]
    I used the green and black wires from the extension cord and hooked them to the corresponding green and black wires in the remote harness on the backside of the cover. The extension cord wire actually has a white wire also, I just cut the excess length off.
    Then I ran the extension cord thru the grill and core support to a place where
    I thought was good for the 4-prong flat trailer connector:
    [​IMG]
    This way if I ever have to remove the winch for some reason, I don't have to go thru the hassle of unhooking the wires, just unplug the connector. I just used the two outside wires on the trailer connector and cut the rest off. Hook the trailer connector to the extension cord running to the winch and to more extension cord running to wherever you are going to have your switch panel mounted.

    Here is a diagram of the backside of my switch panel:

    On the master power switch where it says +12 power source, I have mine running to a relay.

    If you have any questions, either respond here or you can pm me :thumb:

    Just so everyone that was reading along with this thread, this hook up will work for any warn winch for the in-cab controls.

    Don't let your remote fool you. It may have five pins, but there's really only 3 wires to speak of. Just wire your in cab controls the way your remote is wired.
