Tech is saying the switch needs to be replaced and I need to ship the winch to a service center in PA.

Has anyone ripped into one of these or similar 9.5 model to bypass the switch (the tech said it was possible to at least make sure that is the issue).

I'm not shipping a 100 lb. winch to PA until I'm absolutely sure I can't do it myself....and it is almost 2 years old and not under warranty.
something similar like this happened to my 9.5SI, the mosfet controller went bad. I had to ship mine to Warn in Oregon. While the shipping out there sucked Warn completly rebuilt my winch, respooled the x-line, put on new power cables, gave me a ton of stickers and a few owners/operators manuals that were hand highlighted. They did all of this work in 1 day and shipped it back out to me for free I love Warn.
I'm the man in White.

If you want peace, prepare for war!

Forgiveness is between them and God. It's my job to arrange the meeting.
