using deere wiring on 835M for non-deere provided winch

EDIT - *page uploads no longer needed / wanted *


If anyone has this installation guide (should be with your documentation if you have the warn 4500/s from deere), I'm curious to see what their instructions are for the behind the dash connections. I'm not getting the warn, but I have an 835M and will be adding a winch soon. If you can scan/photo and then upload the relevant page(s), I'd certainly appreciate it.



Thanks!

I do not have the 835m, so I’m not sure the instructions for my 825i would be of any value?

I would suggest you buy the wiring harness from Deere. You can purchase from Green Farm Parts for about $78.00 w/o sales tax and free shipping. Use discount code GTT on check out.

This harness is made to fit, with proper mating connectors for the switch, remote control and contactor connection. All this is wrapped in wire loom.
Hard to beat the price, and convenience of install, it’s all plug and play -so to speak.




Good luck

Thanks, Brad, and great suggestion on greenfarmparts! I've used them for my first 2 orders of stuff, good guys. Second order was delivered on a pallet (included the back glass). BTW, for those using that code, please sign up on greentractortalk too. (that's what GTT code is for). My last order is coming from the local deere house, but that's because I had a 20% off coupon from the drive event.


The 835m has the cable for the disconnect @ front bumper to the battery already installed. The only other cable I noticed down there in the battery area was for the windshield washer, but I haven't taken the skid plate off yet.. The only 2 items to order for the 835m are the warn winch ( BM26251 )and either the Mounting kit for the Chasis ( BM26252 ) , or the receiver mount ( BM26393 ) . -- well you can order an accessory kit with tree strap, snatch block and shackle, but it's way over priced IMO. also can order the wireless remote. Anyway, I was curious to see the instructions from the BM26251 to see if I can feed off an existing connector inside the dash for my rocker switch or if I"ll have to run a new cable through firewall.

installation instructions page(s) request : BM26251 - Warn 4500 winch Addon

On the 825 there are two wires (black and yellow) with a connector that is used for switched connections.

It is located behind the steering wheel, usually taped to a wire bundle. This connector can be daisy chained for multiple switches.

Perhaps this will help?

I figured out what I need from jdparts. Pretty much what I assumed, but was able to confirm viewing wiring harness 3 schematic. I must admit, in my ignorance I'm still a little confused why the power to the quick disconnect @ front bumper would run directly to battery if the contactor/solenoid for the warn kit is supposed to be installed on the left front (maybe it's not, and that's just where they put the 2 spade connectors from switch..), but I know how I'm going to wire it now I'll patch in at the 2 spade connectors on the left front, then run from there down to back of storage box next to battery where I will install the contactor. Then I'll take the the viper elite rocker and attach it into the JD wiring harness inside the dash with series 56 connectors so I'm not cutting any existing cables in the JD wiring harness, just modifying the viper rocker switch cable instead. I'll probably put the wireless transmitter on the front right.

And speaking of the quick disconnect up front -- I had been looking at 175a connects, as that seemed logical considering what a 4500+ winch could use -- but JD is using a 50a quick disconnect. I'm guessing since they are using 6 gauge wire to run to battery? best I can tell all the 175a connectors are either 0 to 1 or 2 to 4 gauge.



If you look at the 175a vs 50a quick disconnects, *MOST* of the 50a are square on the outside corner, whereas *MOST* of the 175a are rounded on outside corner.

If you still need instructions, I can scan them from my Warn VTX45 install. Behind the dash is dead simple. All connectors are already wired into the harness

No sir, I'm good now. I confirmed what I suspected on the connections using the jdparts schematics. Now I just have to modify a few of the cables from the winch hardware. Thank you kindly for the offer.
