Wireless winch remote install question.

Okay, I bought this cheap universal remote on Ebay for my winch. I connected the wires to the posts on the contactor box that the winch is wired through, and I get nothing. The winch works with the rocker switch, but the remote gives me nothing. The little light works when I push the in and out buttons, so I know the battery is good. Can I not wire to the contactor block?

I'll be honest, I just gave up and spent the money on a Polaris plug and play wireless controller, and it works like a dream.

I bought the Polaris remote as well. I find it funny how to this point everyone has told me to avoid buying the Pure Polaris brand, yet everything I have purchased has met or exceeded my expectations. Everything fits as it should and works as promised. I'm not saying the aftermarket in unsuitable, but so many on this forum save a couple bucks on initial purchase, yet kill any savings with returns and aggravation.

I guess it's like the stickers they used to have on GM products, stating; "Keep your GM product ALL GM." I'll keep my Polaris product all Polaris.

I just bought an ebay remote setup as well and installed it today but the module that wires to the winch contacts just clicks when I press the buttons on the remote. Anyone figure this out?
