2007 TRX450ER Blowing Main Fuses

Recommended Posts

So I will describe my last 2 rides so you know what the conditions were. The first was my last race, very wet and muddy, no crashes. She ran like a raped ape, no problems at all. The next ride was some trail riding that was wet and very rocky. I bounced off of a rock pretty good on my belly skid plate. I stopped to check for damage, none, then I turn my key back to start and I lose all electrical.

I was able to pop start it and get it back to the truck. I find later that the main fuse is blown, replace it. The quad starts up just fine everything is gravy. Several hours later I turn the key on again and blow the fuse instantly. There was no riding or bouncing between the 2 starts.

:aargh:WHY?

If it's in the shop...they should be able to find it. It might be your starter causing a huge load when you turn the key to start it. Disconnect the cable/connectors from the starter and turn that key on..see if the fuse blows. if it doesn't blow, your starter is the issue.

I personally couldn't find anything wrong with the wiring. My mechanic has gone through it all, he is at the point that he is contacting Honda for a complete wiring schematic. I have a race in 2 weeks...I need my baby.

That is really wierd, good luck to you, I hope you get it figured out in time. Perhaps you might try replacing the starter solenoid. The short could be inside there.

Bot that sux. It does sound like a wire got pinched when you hit the rock but if you and the mechanic can't find anything I don't know. I hope you have some luck finding it soon.

I found the problem, after 2 weeks in the shop, they found nothing. I went and got it from them and took it to my racing buddy. In 15 minutes he determined that I need a new start button. The spring has collapsed causing the contacts in there to short out.

Not quite. I have to get the part and install it. Of course I can't buy just the button piece, I have to buy the whole switch assembly.

My racing buddy set up a toggle switch out of a police car on my handle bars and wired it to my starter. It works just as good if not better than stock. But it is just a temporary fix until I get the actual part. This way i can race.

That's good troubleshooting by your friend! :yes:

disconnect either side of your battery and put a voltmeter, yes voltmeter in series with the side you disconnected. IF you see a voltage that is not good. Start pulling fuses one at a time until the voltage is no longer present on the voltmeter, once you have identified where you can then narrow it down to what. I really hope this helps you out, I have used it on automobiles several times.

I thank you for your input, however I found the problem. It was actually my start button for the electric start. The spring collapsed causing a constant contact and then riding in wet conditions blew the fuse from moisture staying in there.

      Hi All,
      Want to show you one automotive show that I filmed in my town called Crazy Race. This was two day race in Qualifications round, Semifinals and Final. In this 4 parts I am showing best moments from all rounds and entertainment of the show.
      Crazy Race Part 2 contains a qualifying round where all riders race against each other, selected by lot and split by two. They are free to drive in any direction and to hit their opponent's car everywhere except at the driver's door. Anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified. Winner of each race continue in the semifinal round. In this part I will present the best moments of the qualifying round! 
       
      Part 3 shows you the best moments from Day 2 - Semifinals and Final. Battles in the semifinals are among the winners of the first day races, but this time they are selected by lot and divided into 4 battles of 4-5 cars each. The rules in each battle are that they only have to drive in one direction and try to neutralize other opponents until there are only two players left. Then the battle between the two last drivers has the rule to drive in any direction until only one who has qualified for the final round is left. Again, anyone who intentionally hit the other car in the driver's door is disqualified.
      For the final round there were only two cars left, because the other two players who got the right to be there had problems with their car and could not participate.
       
      Part 4 containing entertainments between battles and winners rewarding.
      This event will have second round in 05-06 October 2019 and also will be filmed  For this new round I will filmed in many new angels and places. Will prepare a lot more videos and many new entertainments . This 4 videos was my first try so many things to wish for better filming in the future one.
      Hope you will like them and of course feel free to comment and to ask everything. Hope you will Subscribe to my channel and to be first to see my other content and of course new round of Crazy Race! Thanks!

      Thanks in advance for any help or guidance. I was out riding the other day and lost all spark. I have read every thread on every forum that I could find and have not found an answer. I have checked the codes and its 00. I have ohm metered the stator and crank sensor. I have also replaced the coil pack. I have inspected and cleaned all connections. I do not mud the machine, it is mostly used at the hunting lease for working plots. When I installed the new coil I held the plug on the side of the engine and got 2 little sparks when first turning over and then nothing again. When you turn the machine over like this it eventually flashes EFI on the screen. I checked both wires that go to the coil and noticed that both have ground continuity. While turning over the blue and white one cycle from around 1v to almost 12v. The battery has a full charge and I am at a total loss. I took the kill switch apart and all looked well. Oh yea and all fuses are good. Help me please I am getting very frustrated. Thanks
