2001 polaris scrambler 500 light problems

Recommended Posts

hey guys i"m new here but I have a problem hoping you guys could help. I have a 2001 polaris scrambler 500 and when i bought it the battery was bad. I would just start it with the pull start and everything worked fine. The head lights, the lights by the key turn, and the 4 wheel drive light . Then, I finally decided to buy a new battery and set up it up like I was suppose to and then installed it onto my a.t.v. Now, for some reason the lights don"t work any more. I looked around to see if a fuse box was on the a.t.v but I haven"t found one. Does anybody have a idea of where one could be or what could be the problem ? Any info. that you guys could help me with would be very nice.

First, disconnect the battery again and see if things start working again. If they do, then I would guess there is some kind of short in a circuit that is directly connected to the battery. There is also a possibility that your battery cables are shot. Does the battery stay charged, you should check the voltage at the battery when it is disconnected, when it is connected, and when it is connected and running. If the voltage goes down when you connect the battery, that is evidence of a dead short, a faulty connection/component, or bad cables. If the cables are good and the battery is getting a charge, the voltage should go up a bit when the motor is running.
