Since this winch is wireless is it Bluetooth capable? I don't know the details of it. Be nice to work from a phone app like the kits they offer for the other models.
In a very similar approach to @Kansascoast there is a vid on Youtube that details how to McGyver a solution. I would link it here but Youtube is blocked from work. However just go to Youtube and type in "Warn ZEON Platinum - Dead Battery Solution". The poster is named CL Biro and his video shows how what he discovered with regards to battery drain and what he did to fix it. Like @Kansascoast you may have to be prepared to be McGyver. I haven't used my Platinum S yet...though I did buy it used....so I'm preparing for the worst.
I looked it up based on the FCC ID printed on the back of the remote. It’s an 802.15.4 radio, runs in the 2.4 GHz range. You can look up the protocol but the short version is it’s a low power radio protocol that gets used a lot in the IoT space. So we might be able to reverse engineer some of this but I’m not sure a mobile app is doable as phones lack that radio.Since this winch is wireless is it Bluetooth capable?

I purchased and installed my Zeon platinum 10S in 2018. I had the same issue, and contacted Warn, and they sent me a new controller. Same problem with the new one so I just leave it plugged in and stick the controller in a Molly bag on the back of the seat. I've been doing this for 2 1/2 years and it works just fine for me.I wish I had read this before picking up this expensive boat anchor. Now since my winch is relatively new I have been able to plug in the remote to actually have it work, but I also have my remote last barely a week due to parasitic loss (with the green warn switch off).
I have hardwired my other Jeep warn into the dash - I wish I had done that again.
