    Wiring Winch to power switch to momentary switch??

    Just wiring up my winch and decided to buy switches to mount in my dash. First is a on-off switch to kill the power to the winch and then after switching it on it powers the momentary switch, in-out.

    So not sure how to wire them, anyone have a diagram to wire them up. These are the switches:


    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Depends on how many poles are on the back. I have a pretty good idea now after putting mine in. Your one switch will just supply power to the other switch that actually runs the winch. On UTV Inc.'s Facebook page, they have a wiring diagram for their switches, but some of these are different...........

    Personally, I use switches to Break Ground, rather than power. That keeps the switch from building heat. Use a in line fuse on the power side or even a 12volt relay. As for a Diagram, google can be your best friend there. I would not hassle with a switch to cut power, an In-line fuse can do that if you feel the need to cut power and work on the winch.
