Troubleshooting Install of Superwinch Where Winch Operation Shuts Off ATV When Operated


We used the winch on our terryx and the engine instantly shut down . When we tried to start it again there was nothing . After sitting for a while it starts again . What would cause this ?


Expert Reply:

Sounds like your battery is weak on your Terryx and the amperage draw of the Superwinch LT2000 ATV Winch # 1220210 is taking all of the ignition's amperage as well which is causing the engine to die since basically you are shutting off the spark plugs.

The wiring for this is pretty basic but you may also check to make sure you have the correct wires ran to the positive and negative terminals of the battery.
