You guys were spot on. I removed the rear buss connector and twisted the like colors together and the fan came on and it fired right up! The plastic connector didn't look that bad but, I could see some green/blue corrosion within.

What is the best way to keep the wires connected? I have some outdoor lighting twist caps with dilectric grease in them. Could I install these and wrap in electrical tape?

Thanks,
Todd

The best way is to solder then and use heat-shrink tubing with a dab of clear RTV inside before shrinking. Then tape it all back into the harnace.

The 06's actually have 3 one in the rear the most common to go out one in front on the same side as the rear and one on the opposite side in the front. But the fronts rarely give trouble.

Good info on here guys, thanks!

I have an 07 and the display pod never powers down fully & the 4x4 was working intermittently and now not at all. The 07s don't have the bus issue right? Could there be similar bad connection issues with the 07? Where do I start looking?

KEBC & 4x4 actuator power on fine, seem clean, only thing that looks weird is some wear on the block on the end of the actuator, see pic. There is a "U" shaped wear line into the metal. Do you just tap out that small side pin or what?

My 05 did the same thing.. Well I wired it up like you said and my 4 wheel drive and speedo isn't working.. Have any of y'all seen a speedo censor burn up from touching the wrong wires together?

05 brute

i was out the other day giving a buddy a jump in the woods and the fuse for the ignition got hot and started melting so we pulled the fuse and of course it wont start long story short i have to put the fuse in start the bike and pull the fuse out because after a few seconds it gets hot and starts to melt it will run without the fuse in but only to a 1/4 throttle its charging because i can run the fan and the lights and ive checked when i put the fuse back in it will rev up like it should is it possible that this connector is my problem ?

could this also happen on an 07 ? ive recently replaced my battery and its having similair issues . i could be out for a ride and my instruments would shut off and it would run like a bag of garbage leaving me to ride home at 8 mph popping and farting . Any other suggestions if this isnt it ?
