well it looks like it's the solenoids, while I was in class yesterday my dad hotwired the winch and bypassed the control box, no hesitation at all. tonight I'm going to replace them and hopefully I can put off buying a new winch for a few years

I F-ing HATE intermittent electrical problems.

I remade the entire control box with 200A continuous duty solenoids (literally all of it)

same damn thing.

when you bypass the control box and use the existing wires to transfer the current it works fine. the only thing I can think is that it is the brushes in the motor and it comes and goes.

It should be nice shiny copper. Now take the case, pull the large torx head screws out of the case, they hold the magnets in. All four magnets come out at once, be careful, as you don't want to break any of the connections. Polish the inside of the case, and the outside of the magnets. There was some pretty serious corrosion on both of these surfaces.

Put it all back together and you should be good. The first time I had mine apart, I didn't pull the magnets out of the case, and it didn't work. Once I pulled it all the way down, it was perfect after that. Good luck, shoot me a PM if you have any questions.
