I’m working on wiring up front and rear light bar plus winch and found these 3 terminations near the battery opposite the fuse housing but can’t find them in the wiring diagram for the 590M to determine what they are for. I can run continuity but I assume they have a specific purpose that may be for lights or winch?

It certainly would be beneficial if JD labeled these leads from the beginning to minimize chances of error or to aid the end customer.

If connecting a winch, you may want to consider the electrical load it will demand and if there is enough storage capacity in the battery. From the photo it looked very small and I don't believe the alternator has much output either. If nothing else know the limitations so you can use the winch accordingly and protect the battery/alternator from damage.

Hope someone can provide the wire identification.

If the wires shown are heavy gauge, the chances are they are intended for winch use.

You could also look at the color coding on the wires and trace them back to determine their possible use?
