Question about 265072 M12000 Self-Recovery Winch - Automotive Truck Parts & Acce

2 Answers

I pinched my remote plugin cable and broke one wire. I spliced the wire and the winch still won't work. Is there a reset button or a fuse which may have shorted out? The winch is a m12000 from 1997.

Is there a reset button or fuse that possibly is blown/

LOL. I know the system you have. I believe you may have fried the toggle switch it the remote. It happens, I have been there too. It is simple to check, unplug it from the winch, use a ammeter set on diode check with sound on, check for continuity between all 4 pin sockets. then hold the switch in each position while you check continuity. The simple thing to do is to replace the switch if you don't have an ammeter.

Is the hot wire connected directly to the battery? Did you check to see if the wire is hot after you spliced it? There may be fusible link in the wiring or the wiring may be broken somewhere else. You can also try running a new hot wire from the battery to rule out a faulty winch. Trace the wire from the winch to its source of power, ie fuse box or battery

if you can use the winch manually by pressing buttons on the winch then the problem will be in either the remote unit(Battery in back to front) or the receiver in the winch

Broke wire connector


First thing you will want to do is check the warranty for your lockset. If they will cover the lock under some part of the warranty then do that, if not. You could try getting a butt splice gauged for the wire and try splicing it together like that but there is no guarantee that it will work. Most electronic locksets have very sensitive wiring in them and even the smallest pinch on the wire can ruin the lockset. Try cutting out the parts that were broken off and splicing them together.

I have a 1998 ford explorer and sometime at the same time the windows won't go up or down and the dome light won't work and the windshield wipers won't work what can it be?



  • You need to open up the drivers side door and look at that harness that stretches between the door and the door frame. Inside that harness are the wires for the electronics in the cabin and then some.

  • Over time those wires get pinched and crack and break. So you need to splice the casing (or just simply slide the harness to one side and then the other) open the long ways and inspect the wiring. Your looking for broke, split, rusted, bulging or otherwise negated wiring. The boots on either side may need to come off to look up inside for broke wires as well. Usually it's pretty evident which wires are messed up but sometimes you have to do a little digging.


  • When you find the broke wire[s] splice some new wire[s] in and use electric tape to re-insulate.


  • This is a common problem across the board with many car manufacturers and repairing the harness almost always is the fix in a situation such as yours.



  • Hope this helps.

I have a 2011 rzr. the winch worked corretly the first time using it. Now when you push the out switch it goes in. Please help.


Sometimes the winch cable can become pinched or bind up in the spool. This will make it act like it is going in when the out position is pushed. Try hooking your winch up to a post and turning it to free wheel on the winch, then slowly back the RZR up about 10-20 feet. This should be enough to free up any spots in the cable. Turn the winch back in to operating position, and try pressing the in and out on the switch to see if operation is normal. Otherwise someone may have switched the cables going into the winch, 1 yellow and 1 blue. Let me know if you need any more help, Daniel.
