Before winter comes along I wanted a remote, for the winch, for my snow plow.
Researched a few and found what I was wanting on amazon.
The wiring looked simple, comes with 2 remotes, and for less then $20, I figured I'd try it out.
.
The install was so simple, I didn't even take pics, sorry.
The remote control unit, I double side taped it next to the winch contactor.
.
I did find a good wire hookup pic, and then added my color combo to it.
For me, white goes to black, and yellow to green on the contactor.
Amazon online shows the red wire to power.
Yep, this is correct, BUT!!!! DO NOT hook it direct to power. Hook it to any key on power source.
That way if something goes wrong, you can turn off the key/ off the power source.

edit to add
The large remote, you have to push and hold the small button before it will work.
The small remote, the cover is a good thing, because it is active as soon as you push a button.
Have used it a few times, and works like it is supposed to.
Seems to be a good buy.

My large remote quit working, so I replaced the 2 batteries, 23A 12V.
Did not fix the problem. Started digging to find out how to reprogram.
Searched MANY, before I finally found what worked for this remote.

Found this, and adding it here to try next time for this remote/winch
.
This might work, BUT, I have not tested it
These instructions are for future reference should I need them.
.
Press ON and DOWN on the remote within 2 seconds after connecting the winch to the battery.
Hold 5 seconds then release the ON and DOWN buttons.
Re-programming is done.
- Please note, the timing is critical to press and hold the ON and DOWN buttons within 2 SECONDS after connecting the winch to the battery or the re-programming will not work.
.
When/If I do this, I will update this post.
.
Have a good day

Yep, still happy with it.
I think the reason I had to reset the one remote, was because I had not used it for so long.
The other smaller remote still worked fine.
.
And, sorry, I added that information here, so I wouldn't lose it to try IF needed.
There are so MANY ways to program remotes for these things online, but only that one worked for mine.
.
Have a good day
