Can anyone service a Warn winch locally?

I bought a used Warn PowerPlant a while back and finally got around to installing it. But, I think I have a faulty solenoid. The winch will spool out, but not in. I don't think it's the remote as I tried two different ones. I am new to winches and don't want to mess anything up by taking it apart. Can anyone here point me in the direction of someone or a business that can repair my winch? I'm in Lubbock, but come to Amarillo often. I don't want to spend the money to ship in to and from an authorized service center as they are too far. Thank you.

Yes, I know who you're talking about (D.S.I Distributing). But, as I mentioned in the post, it will cost me quite a bit to ship it there and back (at least $200) plus the repair costs. That's why I'm looking to do something locally.

If it's not new enough to be solid state, (have a circuit board), go down to your local auto parts store and get a couple of FORD starter solenoids. Take a picture of how the thing is wired if your not electrically inclined and swap them out. I have a xi 9000 that burned all 4 in one shot, river muck, swap in the new solenoids, no problem. This is way cheaper than the crap you get from warn.

Oh by the way, They are higher than hell! Still might be cheaper than shipping it.

According to the Warn website, Shertz (San Antonio area) and Colorado Springs are the closest Authorized Warn Service Centers to Amarillo.

With no authorized repair center close, I was looking for someone very knowledgeable with winches. I just thought I'd try before I send it off.

Call warn tell them that you think your solenoids are out. They will send you 4 for free. Just don't tell them you bought it 2nd hand.
