2005 Polaris Sportsman 500 Instrument Cluster Issues

Recommended Posts



Hey Barry, welcome to Quadcrazy! 
The cluster on the dash should have nothing to do with the high/low beams. 
If the cluster is working properly aside from the illuminating portion then there may be a problem internally with the cluster. I would move some wires around going into the cluster and see if it comes on like a loose connection.  I am not 100% sure but my guess would be if the cluster has power and shows the diagnostic portion (mph/rpm) of the atv and  the illumination portion should work as well.

Hey Frank! Thanks for the reply!  Sorry I didn't state there is no illumination on the cluster at all, no diagnostic display at all.  Just assuming the key turned on allowing the lights to turn on means I'm getting power to the pod? ]

 

I moved this unit from one garage bay to the another garage this morning it was fine, went back in an hour or so to move it back and it did this.  I can't grasp what the issue is.....possibly a ground issue?

It could be a ground issue or a corroded fuse. I would go get some dielectric grease and start taking plugs and fuses apart, clean all areas and apply the grease and reconnect.    Some plugs may be tough to get to since they are located under the front plastic right where that cluster is located so you may have to pull that plastic off.

Had you figured this one out yet@Barry Troxtell?  I say either it's a corroded connection (either a fuse or a plug for the pod) or moisture got inside the pod and shorted the whole thing like on mine.  Let's hope it's the first cause those pods run 200 plus $$$

      Charging issue?
      I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI. Yesterday, I start the machine and it says low power (10.6-10.8). This machine is on its second battery. This is a new AGM battery with 50cca more than stock.
      Should I look at the regulator or stator?
      Thanks!!!

      Hey guys, figure you guys would have some helpful direction or answers.
      So, 05 Sportsman 700 carb, new carb, fuel pump, new plugs, new air filter, new everything I can think of that is usually the running issues. Starts up fine, seems to run fine, but if under load, two people, or even one person, up a hill, or pulling a drag chain for the driveway, it starts to cut out and sputters and loses all power, until I back off on the throttle and just barely try to let itself catch itself and then I can take off again.
      I am going crazy trying to figure this thing out. Other than that, the quad runs great. Parents bought bran new, just used around the property, 5000 miles on it. Any ideas???

      Does anyone know how to access the check engine codes on a 2018 450 sportsman. Just changed battery and spark plug . It runs fine but the light is on and I need this to plow snow and need it reliable. Any ideas . Thanks

      Hi, I got a check engine light and a diagnostic code 520194 2 and i know it has something to do with throttle voltage out of range
      I'd like to know if thats something that can be adjusted ? Or does anybody know what should i test  ?  I just bought this atv and I'm fixing it as its been in an accident. 
      I also changed throttle leaver as original one was broken and I noticed inside the 4x4 selector assembly there are 2 contacts but I'm not sure if they're suppose to make contact at idle. I found some info online but some are saying they're suppose to touch and some say they're not. I think id depends of the year of the machine but I'm not sure. I'd really appreciate any help that i can get with this
      Thanks

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. The Speedometer got water inside of it and it sat for a long time. So now that speedometer is trashed to say the least and i need to find a replacement. I don't want to put up the cash for an oem one so i was wondering if anyone knew any good speedometers out there i could use. I've found many speedometers i like but don't know how i'd wire it up without the same connection points. Thanks, any input is appreciated
