Hello
I just bought a winch for my Forman. Is the pink wire the aux wire on the ignition and is this the best wire to hook in the winch? For it can turn on and off with the key

Yes I would wire it to the accessory circuit, perhaps with a Y cable so I could still feed the accessory circuit

I would use the wire at the cigarette lighter. You can unplug it from the lighter and the harness to get it on the bench, The wire is only about a foot long. Cut strip and solder then cover the connection with heat shrink. I also use this to power relays for light bars and heated grips.

Mine was patched into the wiring to the lighter socket and finally corroded out so I ran a new wire from the battery (with a fuse at the battery end) up to the switch, now it鈥檚 powered up all the time which is handy when mounting the winch.
