Someone who knows a Warn Really well..

I'm sure this is a stupid idea but it's all I got. Here is my issue. I have 3 winches. One on my truck (8k), one on a multi mont (9k) and a 15K off my old rangie. The motor blew out on the 15k and warn replaced it under warranty. I disassembled it sent it to them and they sent it back but i'm not sure I put together correctly. Since then I have lost the control box but I want to test it. What I was thinking I would do is hook up the 9K to the back of the defender, hook the 15K to a battery and then run a jumper cable from the 9k to the 15 so I could piggy back off it's control box. I can't seem to get the warn site to give me a wiring diagram. Does anyone know which of the three wires coming off the winch goes to what? F1, F2, F3 I believe they are called? Will this work if hooked up correctly? (I'm really bad with electrical stuff) THanks.

Hmm, that seems complicated..

Test procedure for most warns though;

1. Put the winch in free spool
2. Disconnect the positive lead from the battery (Leave the ground lead attached)
3. Label and disconnect the three cables that run from the control pack to the three posts on the motor (You can skip this since you don't have a control pack)
4. Stamped next to the three posts on the motor will be an 'A', 'F1', and 'F2'. Run a small jumper wire (5"-6" dead lead, 8ga. will work just fine) from 'A' to 'F1' and put power from the battery (jumper cables work well) to F2. The winch motor should run in one direction at this time.
5. Next, place the jumper wire from 'A' to 'F2' and put power from the battery to 'F1'. The winch motor should run in the opposite direction this time.

If these steps are followed correctly and the motor runs in both directions, then the motor is good.

Make sure you have ground going to the winch motor as well.

so F2 and F3 on the 15 would be positive and negative on the battery?

No... well, not as far as I know... With my Winch which is a Warn XD9000, and other winches i've seen, there are three posts on the top of the motor, A, F1, F2 ... then there is a ground bolt on the bottom of the motor.. I hooked my ground to a good ground on the chassis, then plug the A, F1, F2 from the solenoid box, then there is a power cable that gets run directly to the battery on the solenoid box, and a smaller ground wire.

See page 11 diagrams. Same test procedure for your motor.
