Polaris700 (2004) Sportsman Electrically Dead

Recommended Posts

Everything suddenly shut down on the trail--no ignition, lights, nothing. It wasn't the battery; we hot wired it to get it home.

Is there a circuit breaker or fused link somewhere on the vehicle--I don't see it.

If the vehicle shut down like this, can I assume that I have a serious short somewhere?

No dealer to ask--and Polaris is the worst company to try to get any help or answers out of--they simply refuse to communicate by phone or email.

Thanks!

I think you have a break somewhere or open (short). You have to try to get your hands on a wiring diagram from the dealer or buy a manual to troubleshoot it. Start witht the main power to the fuses and relays. You also may have a faulty main relay....

      Unfortunately it looks like I have some people in my new neighborhood paying a little too much attention to my auto and for the first time I'm feeling a need to add some security system(s) to old yeller.  I think just a basic remote arm system would do, not interested at all in remote start or unlock.  I'm not familiar with modern alarm systems, but here's what I 'think' I need...
      - Door switches for all 5 doors (rear hatch).  Probably a PITA to install but that's only an initial idea.
      - 'Bump' alarm (not sure what it would be called) for if a window breaks or if something is jarred
      - Geo-location function like a low track or something similar
      Additionally I'd like to install possibly 2 start kill switches.  I'm not sure where inline these are normally installed but my impression is that directly in line with the key ignition switch would be common.  But then what if someone jumps the starter with a screwdriver...would this type of switch work in that instance?  So that leads me to the idea of a second ignition kill switch which would either be wired between the battery and starter motor, or between the starter motor and ground.
      And last...security lugs.
      So am I over thinking this here?  What's your recommendation for what I really need and maybe a good but economic alarm system that can get this done?

      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 so i sold my 04 rubicon and wanted something new so i went to NC and bought a '13 scrambler 850XP LE EPS.  love it the only issues with it when i bought it were a leak in the front tire and the mice had chewed through one of the spark plug wires.  currently have a substitute hooking the chewed end to the ignition coil so itll run on both cylinders however im having an issue finding a replacement coil wire for it and was wondering if yall had any advice.  i need the longer of the two coil wires and i can only find the shorter one online.  will throw up some pics of it when i can

      My lights on a 1992 Timberwolf are not working, the neutral/ reverse and brake lights work. Where do I Start looking for the problem? Thanks in advance.

      My bear big fires up with the pull start fairly easy. My electric start worked fine but now doesn’t even try. I bought a new battery and the same. The odd thing is, when I start it up at times, the neutral or reverse light will light up at times... depending on if it’s in neutral or reverse of course... wondering if anyone knows where I should replace?

      Hello. I am a new member as of today. I had a quick question to ask. I recently was driving mt HONDA RANCHER 2004 GPSscape 400 and my display stopped working. I was driving the atv and all of a sudden the speedometer and the service lights went out. Also the lights stopped working. I am still able to shift gears, change from 2wd to 4wd, and can still select if I want EPS or Auto. I have checked my fuse box and have changed a few of them around. It did not change anything. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what had happend. Thank you for your time- Trenton

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.
