    A 12v DC motor should not care about+ or -. The issue is grounding out if the negative side is live to the frame or the case of the winch.

    Get your meter out and test winch case to the input wires. If the case and the negative input test as connected then you need to reverse the input wires so the positive is going to ground through the case of the winch.
    Phone or Drive, Not Both. Stop driving distracted.

      Thank you for your reply. I am not to worry about the polarity of the motor, as you said it’s 12 volts DC.
      I am worry of the solenoid unit. I will inverse the connections and cross the fingers.
      Thank you again
