I had ARB in Melbourne service my warn 9000 about 18 mths ago and when booking it in they asked whether it was a 3 or 5 pin.

I told them it was a 3 pin and straight away without asking they stated that they would instal a FREE (yep! free) upgrade to a 5 pin controller.

They did so plus a an isolator switch that I requested.

I am pretty sure I still have that 3pin controller sitting somewhere doing nothing.

Let me know at ken_3149@yahoo.com if your interested. If I can find it you can have it for nothing.

Regards

Ken Robinson

Yea warn are updating the controller boxes free, or were, so get your winch serviced, could be cheaper and get the good control box while at it.

Due to the stories of people shorting them out and cutting cars in 1/2...

Sort of a cheap insurance thing on their part I think. Mine was serviced before I got it, adn was changed free, and comes with new controller too!

Truckster is correct the new Warns have a 5 pin connection fitted to reduce or even stop the likely hood of the shorting problem that has been mentioned previously.
I just had a 9500 series fitted and that was the first point mentioned by ARB when it was discussed.
