    Also it's easier to get to by removing the glove box and reaching through.

    Ok that makes sense, I am guessing that it is just a plug in the back of it. Thank you

    Yes, unplug from the back and add the accessories harness in series.

    Have you put a radio in yours? It looks like the radio is supposed to go in the same place as the switch plate and volt meter is. Thanks

    Where is everyone hooking up the positive wire that goes to the key switch as I know you cant hook it up to the key positive without tearing the complete dash apart

    I am assuming you are talking about the accessory plug, it is the back of the cigarette lighter plug in the dash.

    The Honda winch kit comes with the plug splitter for the backside of the CIG socket to give key-on power. It can be accessed from the front.

    But if you didn't buy the Honda kit, we offer a similar plugin the club store - KEY ON POWER Harness for Honda Pioneer 1000, 700, 500, and Talon 1000.
    Also, one for the blue connector (horn connector) by the main winch wires if you want to use that - Honda Talon Power Harness - Version B - Blue Plug Fits Horn Socket!

    Or, any custom wiring you need I can do.
    Thanks.

    No not its a red positive wire that comes out from the control box for the winch and instructions say not to run this wire direct to battery its says connect to a key on power supply well there is now way to connect to the ignition switch as there is no room to get to it unless you take dash apart woundering can I hook the red wire to the red wire on the power steering red wire witch is a lot easier to get to

    NO, Do not connect to the ignition switch wires or the power steering wires.

    You're not using the Honda kit I guess.

    You need to connect the red wire to the cigarette wire or the horn wire.
    This puts it on an independent circuit from the rest of the machine so a failure want leave you stranded .

    Yes, but that does not mean the wires from the ignition switch.

    Both the locations I mentioned are ignition "key-on" wires.

    Shoot me a message if you need more detailed help. I'd be glad to walk u through it.

    Thanks.

    So why not connect to power steering positive red wire if its a key on wire, Your previous messages say don't them yes they are key on switches, You mentioned to get a hold of you and you would walk me through this well how this is the only way I can communicate, No its not a honda winch and I do have a harness all wire come from a colenoid supplied with the super atv winch

    Hi,
    Yes, I will try my best to help you. We can do it here or there or however is good with you. If you want more private talk we can do a conversation here --> https://hondasxs.com/conversations/add?to=hondasxs

    The reason you must be selective on the right location to tap is that you do not want to offer any chance of it shorting out. If you tap the power steering or the ignition wires and it shorts you will (could) disable your machine. Loose power steering or it will not crank. Yes the power steering wire will work for your needs you just don't want to risk that. Well, I don't anyways.

    Its recommended that any accessories use the 10amp ACC circuit for power or relay control power. This is the cigarette lighter and the blue horn plug under the driver's side dash. With these both being accessible there is no reason to tap the wire harness elsewhere.

    Your instructions say find a key wired source. This just means it wants a wire that is ONLY hot when the key is on. Both those locations i mention are.

    Ok.
    Thanks.

    Well I didn't know there was a accessory positive wire under the drivers side as that's were my solenoid is mounted for the winch I did find the battery cables in that area under the dash wrapped in blue tape, So what your saying is if I can find the blue horn plug I can connect the red positive wire from solenoid to that, Not sure about cig lighter plug in so that if I wanted to hook up a cig lighter ???

    If you found the ends to the main winch wires then the blue plug is right there in front of you. Tap that hot wire and your good.

    Lol..
    Your over thinking this. Haha.
    Tap the white wire with the black stripe and this part is complete.

    Positive wires are not always red.
