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 ?

nothing with barjust red+ black- . no codes with winch. baffling and frustrating since i soldered and shrink wrapped it all. i am tearing it all out right now.

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.

yes! this is the first time in 50 years of playing with wires i had an issue like this. i'll blame the sensitive ECM. thanks for the help on my first four wheeler.

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.

      i am sure some one has switched from the dinky battery to a larger car car battery, so any advice? ive got enough bits and bobs on my atv that i feel i need to step up, i keep a float charger on it but i left it unplugged for about a week and it was dead and it a fairly new battery from advance auto, im probably gonna add a cb radio in the future and i think the only thin that has a constant draw is the clock in the dash and the memory for the stereo

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
       
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
       
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
       
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.

      Hi all, I was gifted this Bayou but she's been sitting quite some time. It won't crank using the factory start button but when I jumper the starter solenoid it cranks but there is no spark. The key has power coming in on the white wire and when turned on supplies power to the brown wire coming out.

      I guess I should start with testing the pickup? I heard I may be able to jumper the wires coming from the pickup with an LED bulb and it will flash? I noticed in the manual that it should have around 110 ohms resistance so I'll check that as well. One thing I noticed was that the starter circuit relay has power on one of the black wires with the key on- this doesn't seem normal as I'm assuming the black wires are grounds? I think one of them comes from the start switch, travels through the starter circuit relay and then grounds the starter relay?
      Mine is a 1991 so it has the 7 wire CDI (ignitor) and a 2 yellow wire alternator ( as opposed to the later 3 wire type ) with another 2 wires for the source coils (black & red wires ). The pickup wires are blue and black I do believe. Any help appreciated and yes I will test the pickup ASAP.

      I'm trying to understand how the system works and I don't understand what the yellow / red wire from the kill switch does- I assume it gets grounded when the kill switch is "on" and therefore grounds the CDI so it can't activate the ignition coil? I noticed in the diagram that that yellow / red wire looks like it may be grounded by the ignition key switch when in the "off" position?
      I also don't have 12v power at any of the wires going into the CDI- doesn't the CDI need to be powered? I also read on this forum that someone used a GM HEI module in place of the factory CDI just to test it for spark- does anyone have any info on that?

      I hope I'm not missing something simple!
      Here is a link to the diagram for my bike (which was posted by another user): https://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/topic/13742-1988-bayou-220-lost-spark/?tab=comments#comment-101193

      Any help appreciated!

      Hello everyone,
      My Suzuki LT185 didn't come with a battery from the factory (no electric start). I was wondering if I would need to add a battery if I wanted to install some of those light bars/pods or should I just wire it in to the headlight switch? Will the generator be able to put out enough juice to run the light bar? Also, is it normal for the headlight to get dim at idle, then brighter when driving? Never had a quad before with just a generator. 
      Thanks!

      Hey guys ,i changed over last year from the standard “ hand lever system ,to swapping over to a winch pully set up for my plowing , 
      i have a moose plow,and installed a pulley system on the plow to be raised and lowered with my winch , it works fine but im curiouse if others use a system like this ? It seems like i just do not get enough lift heaight from this setup , it may be how i have it set up ,i dont know ,i would love to see other members setups ,to compare to mine , much appreciated guys 
      thank you.
