Textron mudPRO 700 led light bar install?

Recommended Posts

i wired to the winch feed that comes right from the battery. i went throuhg the switch to the light bar with AND without a relay. both time i get code C1326 on the dash and loose my EPS. what am i doing wrong? should i be feeding the bar and switching to ground? i just installed a new battery the dealer said will fix it and same problem C1326. $120 wasted again at the dealer. why can't i talk with the mechanics at these places? sales people know little about the new machines and just smile at my wallet.brand new machine by the way too.

Welcome to Quadcrazy. Just to clarify, you wired the light bar to what switch, existing light switch or a new independent light switch? 

Secondly did you ground the black wire from the light bar  to the battery or attached to the frame of the bike or is it connected to the wiring system?

Did the light come with a diagram? If so screen shot it and post it please. 

The only reason I’m thinking your getting an indicator light is it’s picking up an external draw on the system.  This code does not come up with the winch in use ?

I was going to say to go over it all again and bench test it before you wrap it up again. Maybe give it a direct feed from the battery with a fuse.

The wires on the switch are only interrupting the red wire without the really and with the relay your sending 12 volts to the relay to bring the relay in correct ?

yup i just benched it up on the wheeler straight to battery+ and - now no codes! do you think using the chassis bond had something to do with it?

Yes I do. I think the bike is picking up stray voltage. Most of the lights have a diode built into the lights.  It’s a check valve if you will for electrical. Allows the flow of electricity to go only one way.

That would apply to the older bikes.  The newer bikes are much more intricately designed with regard to electrical safety. So adding anything to the wiring adds an amperage draw to the system which is outside its normal draw and will throw a code out onto the dash. It will also lock out the ecm.   This way no wires burn up.

Looks sick! Nice work on the light bar.  Bike looks ready to roll . Good luck and make sure you stay on the forum with pics and videos of your rides ! 

Ride safe.

      Well been lurking for a couple years, figured its time to say hey! Been riding in MN since the early 80's been on just about anything and everything with a motor. If you are from the area hit me up! Currently riding a 2018 Sportsman XP 1000, but thinking of going to a General or possibly a Maverick Trail.

      Hi All,
      I have a 2004 Yamaha Kodiak, which has taken me to many remote places and hauled lots of game.  I still love it after 16 years.
      Lately when I go to start it using the starter, sometimes it clicks and kills the power in the display.  Lights don't work, nothing works and I end up having to unplug the battery, wait awhile, and replugging the battery ends up giving the power back.   Using the winch will sometimes kill the power as well.
      Battery is new, all fuses are ok, I'm at a loss.  I can start it with the pull crank and it will work and so will the lights.
      Any insights or advice would be appreciated!

      Hello Guys!
      Dumb question. How much oil registers on the oil level gauge while running? The oil level reads correct when off, but while running I can only see just a little bit in the oil level gauge. Makes wonder if the oil isn't circulating well enough.
      Also, whats your preference in battery brands for ATV's (standard or AGM). We don't ride it all that often.
      Thanks in advance for any info.
