Are you talking about the 2 prong white plug? If so, yes, its not under the hood, its under the Dash, i could kinda see it, lookng up at the dash, from the wheel well. When we installed the Super ATV Power Steering kit, we had to use the 12v switched source plug, its under the dash plastic. Once we removed the front plastics, it was easily seen and out in the open.

Id have to look, but like i said theres one under the dash, and maybe there was one, if you look under the pass side wheel well, up around the top of the shock area, seems like maybe there was on there.

Look under left wheelwell and follow the wires from the 12 volt plug on the dash. If you use the Warn winch from Yamaha there are plugs on the switch wire that comes with it that plug into the plugs from the 12 v. on the dash. I just reread this and I'M confused! Just find the wire under the wheelwell and you will be able to make your switch work.

Did one better, I don't like to cut or splice factory wires. I unclipped the fuse block under the hood and found the 2 brown / stripe wire to be switched power. There was an empty socket on the bottom so I made a custom spade terminal and clipped it in with a 5 inch pigtail, now I have easy access to a switched 12v lead. I'll have photos when I'm done with all the projects.

If get you get down, probally on your knees, and look under the front drivers side wheeel well, and look back towards back of dash on the pass side of steering wheel area, you should be able to see a white empty plug sticking out, and thats where it is, and where i plugged my Power steering kit into.

Like GNXGuy I don't like to cut factory wires,,,,,but I did, cut spliced and soldered a pigtail into the auxiliary power supply(cigarette lighter socket). Ran the pigtail up into the hood area and have a good power supply now.

There are wire leads you can buy from Yamaha and you can put one inline with the 12V outlet and then you can tap into that....saves cutting wires - turns it into Plug-N-Play. Used them for all my extra lights and winch.

That should do it for you. $11.00 from Gearhead.com
^^ this is what I did with my winch. Real quick and easy. You get 2 12v switch leads out of it. All plug and play.

If anyone wants to see the power lead you can buy from Yamaha, here it is.

You plug it inline with the 12V outlet and it gives you two power wires for your accessories.

This is the Yamaha part #: 5KM-86171-00-00
