Just started installing a superwinch terra 45 on my viking and need to know what color wire is the positive lead coming out of the ignition switch. You have to splice to that wire so that the winch won't draw from the battery when turned off. If anyone knows the correct wire that would be awesome I don't have a service manual.

ill take some picks of my installation in a lil bit but what I ended up doing was taking the red wire from both the rocker switch and remote and ran them over to the light switch and spliced it in with the hot wire there its easier to get to. Everything worked out well winch will work with the key in on position and running and doesnt when key is off.

I'll rarely use my winch, but i really wanted to go 4500, thats what i had on my Ranger, but i had put money down on the Viking, and i got the first one my dealer recieved. So when i ordered accessories, i really didnt know what size winch would fit at the time, so i just went with what i knew would work, so i went with the Yamaha 3500. If 3500 isnt ever enough, ive got a snactchblock for that.

Id think so as well. Cant believe Yamaha doesn't sell a 4500 anyways, not like Warn dont make one.

I just installed the relay for my winch today. I mounted it on the frame rail right behind the speedometer because of the EPS I could not put it under the hood. I tapped into the yellow wire for the "Helmet" light since it comes on with the ignition and doesn't shut off.

there is a white wire coming out of the bottom of the fuse box I believe it says ignition, it is only hot when the key is on.I tied into it and it works great, with warn 3500 lb winch pro vantage. daddy
