I am in the process of installing a KFI winch on my new 835m. I am mostly done but cannot seem to figure out one element of the wiring diagram. It indicates that the switch and controller tap into the "ignition wire" which I cannot seem to find. Everything else has been straightforward and obvious
Thank you in advance for any guidance.

On older models yellow wires were power with key on. Simple meter or test light will confirm power with key on only.

I simply tapped into the headlight wire on my XUV550 right behind the passenger side headlight, not far from where I mounted the winch control box. The ignition wire to the winch powers a relay, ought to fairly low current draw. You want it "switched" so that the winch can't be accidentally powered up when the machine is turned off.

Thank you this. I will try it.
