My winch has been acting up as of late. It powers out cable like a champ, no issues there at all. BUT it only powers in once in maybe every 6 clicks on the controller. I naturally assumed it was the controller, and blasted it with some contact cleaner, but that didn't fix it. I cleaned the contacts for the controller and winch connection, but that didn't work either. When I do try to spool-in, I can hear a solenoid (I think) clicking in the winch body. Anyone have any advice? It's a MOPAR bought winch, and I've had it for about 16months. I think it's still under the MOPAR warranty, but not sure.
Did you have the dealer install the winch?
Was it on a new Jeep?
Mine had the same problem.
I bought my wich from Mopar and had it installed by the dealer.
It was replaced for free since it was still under the 3/36 basic warranty.
Over the counter parts are usually covered for 12 months.
The winch will probably be covered by Warn.
I have Lifetime Max Care Service contract so needless to say my winch IS covered forever since I never intend to get rid of my Jeep.
BTW It is a good thing to spool out about 20-30 feet and spool it back in once a month.
I also put a cover on my winch sice that happened.
Thanks for all the ideas. It was installed on a new jeep, by the dealer. The dealer told me it would be covered by 2/24k, but like owtdoorz said, it's 3/36k. Gonna have the dealer look at it Saturday, because when I went today, there was an issue of the original dealer failing to update the VIN in the big jeep database or some shit.
