Warn Winch Problem

my dad installed a brand new warn M8000 winch on his truck recently. He also moved the control box under the hood. After hooking everything up, we installed a plasma rope on it with no problems. It worked great. Several weeks later which was today, he went to use the winch for the first time and it is not working. When you press the in or out button, the solenoids just buzz and click... What gives? it worked when it was installed. Any Ideas what to check? Everything was tight and looked ok....

I know you did this, but make sure the drum is engaged. Also try releasing the drum and pulling a little rope out and reengage the drum.

I tried that. Actually pulled line out, then went to use it and nothing. we had to spool it in by hand after not getting it to work

Make sure your connections are really sound. Also, could be a bad solinoid out of the box.

I will check again and try to test the solenoids if I can figure out how the thing works...

sounds like a poor battery as low voltage will cause the solonoids to buzz as there is not enough power to hold them on. also check the earth has not become loose or corroded.
