Has anyone successfully installed a wireless winch remote to their bike that has a limit switch for the plow? I am trying to install a Warn wireless remote to control my winch to my 2015 Xmr 800. When I purchased the bike, I had the dealer install the Alpine Flex plow which has a limit switch (Cable Saver) that automatically stops the winch from winding in when the plow is in the raised position.

The problem I'm having is, that the Warn instructions show a black and green wire coming from the rocker switch that is connected to the black and green wire coming from the back of the solenoid. The four wires from the Warn module are supposed to be connected to the switch and the solenoid. Fairly simple, but....the wires coming from my rocker switch are blue and green, and the wires coming from the back of the solenoid are connected to a red and green wire attached to the limit switch relay!

I've attached one picture of how the wiring is connected and the winch operates fine. The second picture is with the Warn module connected. In this scenario, the wireless winch remote works fine, and the "out" on the rocker works fine but I the "in" does not work. I've also attached an image of the cable saver limit switch relay wiring.

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you contacted Warn? I would like to know the outcome of this. Thinking of putting one on mine. Remote and flex plow. Had the remote on my old quad, loved having that.

I have. They could only provide me the wiring diagram to their limit switch that they sell for their plow system. They had no additional wiring diagrams.

Ok, I've figured out the wiring if anyone is installing an Warn ATV wireless remote and already have the snow plow system that has a limit switch (cable saver) to stop the winch when the plow is in the upright position.

Warn nor does my dealer have any idea on how to wire this so please proceed at your own risk.

You can only attach the wire using a male or female bullet connector so you can't really mess things up.

Handle Bar Rocker Switch - Blue (or black wire depending on your bike) attaches to the black wire on the Warn wireless module.
Handle Bar Rocker Switch - Green wire attaches to the green wire going into the limit switch relay. You will need to splice in the wire that is identified as #30. THIS PROVIDES POWER TO THE RELAY TO WIND THE WINCH IN.

Black wire from the back of the winch solenoid connects to the black wire of the Warn wireless module.
Green wire from the back of the solenoid connects tot he red wire coming from the limit switch.

Green wire from the limit switch attaches to the green wire on the Warn wireless winch. The other green wire from the wireless winch module is not used.

Black wire from the limit switch is grounded and the black wire from the Warn wireless module is also grounded.

When all wires are connected, both the rocker switch on the handlebar and wireless remote will work and stop when the limit switch comes in contact with the magnet located on the plow.

I hope this helps but feel free to PM me if you require specifics on the job.
