Too many cruisers, not enough time

I am mounting an 8274 that I bought used over the winter. I purchased an Albright from Summit, and picked up a used 4+plus front bumper from Cahill (thanks), got everything mounted and started to attach the red from battery to the Albright without the controller plugged in. Lots of sparking and the winch starting winding (without having the 5 wire controller plugged in). Started disconnecting wires, and this winch continues to operate even when the ground is disconnected and all wires from the controller to the 3 small gauge connection points on the Albright are disconnected. It seems that the winch motor is grounded somehow directly to the truck, but I am not savvy enough to figure out what could be causing this. Any help out there?
