1. Make sure the winch is properly grounded. Click here to read "How to Keep your Winch Grounded".

2. Make sure you have a good 12V source hooked to #1.

3. Make sure #3 and #4 have continuity.

4. Using a jumper wire jump from #1 to #5. Once you do this post #2 should have 12 volts.

5. While jumping from #1 to #5, posts #3 and #4 should lose continuity.

6. If all of this works properly your solenoid is good. If not your solenoid needs to be replaced.

Replacement Options:

 

1. P0375 (x2) 12V

2. P0375 (x2) 24V

3PSCSP (solenoid new style contact switch)

4. PS528C-N (round compact solenoid assembly)
