Not sure what it is??

I spoke to one of the tech guys at warn and his thoughts were either its a ground issue(looks good to me) or an issue with the controller. He suggested getting another controller from friend/4x4 shop etc.

When winching and releasing the trigger the winch dies out when the trigger is depressed again. Then later it will work after several attempts.

If you have an idea where the issue lies fell free to bring meters and test. It would be of great help

I had the same problem with mine it was the remote. you can find wiring schematics online with the pinout for your application. from there you can test for continuity. for me it was the back of the switch. if I took the handle appart and pushed on the back of the switch the winch would work flawlessly until I moved my finger. the swich is kind of cheaply made. I replaced mine with a 2 button ceiling hoist controller about 10 years ago.
