12-Volt DC Power Receptacle
If equipped, the 12-volt DC power
receptacle is located on the hood next
to the instrument cluster. The 12-volt
power receptacle is protected by a 2
amp mini blade fuse located in the
protective bag above the clutch
Use of the 12-volt DC power
receptacle is recommended for
connecting power-sensitive devices
such as GPS units and cell phones.
The 12-volt DC power receptacle and the jumper harness required to
connect the receptacle to the hood wiring harness can be purchased
from your POLARIS dealer.
12-Volt RCA Power Sources
Some rider accessories require the use of an RCA power adapter. If your
model is not equipped with an RCA power plug on the handlebar cover,
an accessory 12-volt RCA adapter or RCA power plug can be purchased
from your POLARIS dealer.
12-Volt RCA Adapter
The RCA adapter can be used if your
model is equipped with the 12-volt
DC power receptacle. Plug the
adapter into the receptacle to convert
it to a 12-volt RCA power outlet.
12-Volt RCA Power Plug
The RCA power plug
(with cover) mounts to
the handlebar cover and
is plugged into the main
vehicle wire harness.
Installation instructions are provided with the accessory.
This power point is powered by the load shed relay and is not fuse
protected. POLARIS recommends using this power point for electric

Start the Engine and Check
Before starting the engine, always refer to all safety warnings pertaining
to snowmobile operation. Never engage the starter when the engine is
running. Never start the engine without checking all vehicle components
to be sure of proper operation. See
Before Starting the Engine
on page 78.
Auxiliary Engine Stop Switch
Check the auxiliary shut-off switch for proper operation. Push the
switch down to stop the engine. Pull it up to allow restarting.
Ignition Key Switch
Make sure the engine stops when the ignition key switch is turned to
Tether Switch (if equipped)
If your snowmobile has a tether switch, remove the tether from the
switch to make sure the engine stops immediately.
Check the headlight (high and low beam) and taillight. Squeeze the
brake lever to verify the brake light illuminates. Make sure all lights
work properly before operating.
If the brake light does not illuminate when the brake lever is pulled,
check the fuse. If the fuse is blown, inspect the brake lever switch wire
to verify it is not damaged. Replace the fuse. See page 124.
Mirrors (if equipped)
Adjust the mirrors so they can be used to their full advantage.
Before driving away, check your surroundings. Be aware of obstacles
and make sure bystanders are a safe distance from the snowmobile.
If the engine stops or will not start, or if an electrical component fails to
operate, a fuse may need replacement. Locate and correct any damage
or short circuits that may have caused the blown fuse, then replace the
Always replace a blown fuse with a new fuse having the same
amperage rating of the blown fuse. Never replace a fuse with a fuse of
a higher amperage rating.
The 12-volt receptacle is protected by a 2-amp accessory power fuse
located in the protective bag above the clutch cover. If the fuse is blown,
inspect the 12V receptacle power circuit. Repair or replace any damaged
components before replacing the fuse.
The brake light is protected by a 2 amp mini fuse located in the
protective bag above the clutch cover. If the brake light does not
illuminate when the brake lever is pulled, check the fuse. If the fuse is
blown, inspect the brake lever switch wire to verify it is not damaged.
Replace the fuse. See page 124.
Never replace a fuse with a fuse of a higher amperage rating.
Constant Power Fuse
Models equipped with electric start or an IDD have a battery/electric
start wire harness. The 2 amp constant power fuse is located on the
electric start wire harness next to the battery cables. This fuse protects
KEY ON power at the ignition switch. KEY ON power supplies battery
voltage to the IDD and GPS puck.
If the IDD does not turn on when the key is in the ON position, check
for a blown fuse. If the fuse is blown, inspect the constant power circuit.
Repair or replace any damaged components before replacing the fuse.
Battery (if equipped)
Connect and tighten the black (negative) cable last.
Verify the battery cables and wiring harness do not come into
contact with the brake disc. Move the wiring harness/cables behind the chassis
tube and away from the brake disc.
BROWN harness ground wires
(A) and BLACK main battery
ground cable (B) as shown in
the image. Both are routed up
and over the rubber strap. If
the ground wires/cable are
routed down the side of the
battery, they may interfere with
the rear side panel tab. Note
the routing of the RED
(positive) battery cable (C) and that the right fender (D) is pulled away
from the chassis. Item (E) is the constant power fuse connector.
Verify that cables are properly routed.
Ensure that the battery wires are routed in such a way that they
cannot come into contact with the brake disc.
Secure the right fender using the plastic rivet.
Reinstall the console using the two plastic rivets.
Reinstall the side panel.
