Bought a winch warn 3.0 got everything hooked up but the small red switch power wire. What are you guys hooking this up to. Ita says to hook up to a wire that off when key is off. I was thinking about rear tail light?

there is a wire coming from the switch(on the back side) that is off when switch is off,,,, cant remember what color it is, but just get a voltmeter and check it out,,, that is where I hooked mine too,,,,, i think the rear tail light would only be hot when the light switch is on,,,,,, hope this helps,, ,,, ,, ,, ,, ,, cg

you can buy a inexpensive tester at Lowes for 2 bucks,it has a light that comes on,and two probes,thats what i used,and i found a wire under the seat,a little forward of the fuses

I hooked mine into the low beam headlight wire. The winch only comes on when I turn the low beam on.

if you pop the seat off,,,,,,go where the fuses are,,,towards the back of that area,there are some wires tucked down underneath,,,,,pull those up,and i believe it was a orange one i tapped into for both my winch,and the temp gauge
