Default Spark then click on my winch....tree carnage pic

I attempted to use my ramsey rep8000 the other day after this (Damn vacuum engagement)



Well when I tried my winch it did nothing, so I noticed the terminals for the remote connection were corroded. Being the dumbass I am I used a wire brush that jumped two of the connectors and caused a spark followed by a click. I am sure I blew something, question is what? And How do I get to it?

Oh ya I have video of it too if anyone wants to host it...

Unless you are running a small fuse somewhere, which isn't very common, you didn't do any damage..

That wire brush will arc between + and -, and burn up instantly..

No damage done

Only reason I thought I broke something is because I couldnt get it to spark again. Even after cleanin all the terminals

Probally nothing..... if no fuse, and if they were old and well used, you could have melted down a solenoid (improbable, but not impossible). $10-$20 fix.
