XRC8/ Mile Marker winch part source? Plug in for remote

Need a source for the socket that the remote plugs into on the control box.

I ditched the control box and mounted the solenoid in the bumper. I should have protected the switch better. The wires broke off the back of the plug. It looks like one of them broke off flush, so I cant solder them back on. The 6 o'clock position in the pic. There are 4 wires. Did two of them go two one position?


Winch is a Smittybuilt XRC8, but the wire protector on the back of the socket said Mile Marker.

4 wires on the back, 3 holes on the front.

There should be 4 wires soldered to the back that lead to the solenoid.



Thanks

Vince

Should only be three wires. The fourth pin on the back of that plug is dead, ignore it.

Thanks, but there are 4 wires coming out of the solenoid.

Anyone have a wiring diagram?

That's a standard 3 pin XLR microphone connector. It's available at almost any electronics store....I think Radio Shack has them too. Unless you seal the entire thing in silicone there isn't really any way to weather-proof them. Yes, the terminal in the top of the photo can have a wire attached to it, but usually they're not used. I would guess that that top terminal would be a ground connection.

So there are 4 wires that go from the remote to the solenoid.

I'm guessing.

Power
Forward
Reverse
Ground

There are only 3 connections on the the back of the plug? Thought the bottom one broke off, but maybe there was never one there.

Thoughts?

Good eye. I think it's a 3 pin female chassis mount XLR plug to be exact.

When I used to do commercial audio, I soldered hundreds of those damn things...The top connector looks like a round eye lug, while the rest are cups. Wrap the wire around the eye lug and solder normally. I suggest a healthy dose of silicone over everything when you're done.

My guess would be that the ground was up on the round eye lug, and the power was on the opposite, with the forward/reverse on the side lugs. But that's just how I would wire it....what would I know? You might have to put power to the winch and see what happens when you use a test light to check each line. When you find power, try jumping it to the other lines and see which way the winch goes. Then pull the plug on the controller apart, and using a multi-meter figure out which circuits are connected to what when you push the forward/reverse switches.

Picked up a female chasis plug at Radio Shack for $8.

Will plug in the remote then trial and error the wires on the back of the plug.

Waterproof will be via silicone and heat shrink.

Thanks

If any one wants to pull their cover and take a pic of the wires on the back of the plug that would be awesome.

Ranger, I owe you a couple beers!

Came through with the part, source and wiring diagram FTW!

Thanks
