I have a 2013 Polaris 550 Sportsman. I bought a Polaris 2500 winch and mounted it. Problem is it will only work with the key off. When I turn the key on or start it the winch wont work!! Please help........

Should be just the opposite. Sounds like you wired it wrong. The hot wire or positive should be connected to a source that is hot only when the key is on. Check the polarity on the solenoid.

No, it is wired correctly. Everything is color coded, very simple instructions.
Anyone else have any suggestions??

If it's wired correctly then it would work.

Break out your meter and check the high amperage contactor power feed connections with the engine running. If you have juice there then check the switch "common" power connection has juice.
