ok here is how you do the Buss Connector fix, i think the factory fixed it from 06 on so it should only be for the 05s

First off you need disconect the battery. then remove the rear rack and fender so you can get to the fuel tank

This is the wiring harness your looking for


You need to take the tape off the get to the little white connector, which is the white thing in the pic



After you locate and take the tape off of the connector you can start to remove the wires
There are 6 to 8 Black with a yellow stripe wires, remove them



After removing the black/yellow ones then remove the 4 Brown ones and then the 4 white ones. once there all removed from the connector you can start to wire the like colors into groups like this



so you should have 6 or 8 Black/Yellow wires in one group. then 4 Brown wires in a group. then the 4 White wires in a group. now that there all seperated you can use one wire nut for each group. after your done wire nuting i usually put DI-Electric grease in the wire nuts once that is done you can start to tape the whole wiring harness back up and put your fenders and rack back on

i think thats it if im missing somthing tell me and i will add it
Thanks

thank you sir.. Moved this to the how-to's area and renamed it
"HOW TO: 05-06 BUSS Connector Fix with pics"


One note - most people solder those together. For the best conductivity, soldering must be used.

Battery not charging, not starting, almost anything that is electrical. if you have an 05-06 just fix it anyway its going to give you problems at sometime

erratic speeds sounds like the speed sensor is going out.

the other problems very well could be from this but i am not familiar with the prairie wiring harness

if you have time pull the rear plastic and look on the harness it will be a squre connector taped tightly to the harness.

you could ask IBBRUIN he may know more about the prairies as he has one

Sometimes mine won't even make a click when I try to start it, also my winch just stops working and then will work again or...my winch will only come in an inch at a time everytime I press the button, could this be the buzz connector?
