Wireless remote for Arctic Cat 1436-187 winch

I bought a new 2012 425i this past Tuesday and installed the Arctic Cat 1436-187 winch. I cant find a listing for a wireless remote or cross reference # for one from Warn. I called Warn and they said even though it is a Warn winch the Warn wireless will not work because A.C. has their own wiring. I find this hard to swallow since the stock controller is just a 3 pole momentary rocker switch. Might have to change an end or 2 but there has to be a way

Has any one else converted one of these to wireless & what part/kit or brand did you did you use?

I think I will also try to leave my toggle hooked up in case of a dead remote battery.

Yes the dealer thinks the one Warn lists will work but Warn claims the winches with the Arctic Cat name will not interchange because the wiring is different. Also the Arctic Cat Dealer quoted me $50 more then I have found the Warn one listed other places. I think I will just order one and If I cant make it work I will resell it on eBay.

My guess is they are all the same with different wire ends. I have the technology to overcome that problem but was hoping some one else had already done it so I don't work my brain to hard

I can't see why that remote would not work for you. I seriously doubt the wiring is "different" just because its rebranded for Arctic Cat.

This listing shows it is compatible.

High Lifter Products - WARN Wireless Control/Remote Upgrade Kit

I attached a diagram of the winch, so it will help with tracing the wires out.

I also found a PDF of installing the wireless control, Looks real easy and should work with the Arctic Cat version. MAYBE the wire colors differ then the diagram, but I doubt it.

I see no reason why it won't work, all it does is the same as the rocker switch, only remotely.

Thanks a bunch. That answered my question. That is exactly what mine looks like less the standard remote plug. And I see I can leave my handle bar mounted switch. Now if I could just come up with a wired switch for a 2010 model winch because they bolt directly to the bottom of the arctic cat control.

FYI That wireless unit is on ebay for $139
