Blown fuse?

I was pushing snow with my 2008 twin 700 EFI Sportsman X2. I hit a curb gently, and my thumb engaged the kill switch. I disengaged the kill switch and tried to restart the machine. There is power to the instrument cluster, head and tail lights, winch; everything but the starter.

I checked the fuses I could find and found not one bad. Is there a hidden fuse or a connection that is known to come loose? the battery terminals have been disconnected, cleaned, and reconnected with no change. Of course the results re the same in both park and neutral.

Well Polaris Forum. Thanks for nothing. I'll load it up and take it to the shop.

On gun forums there seems to be assistance when someone asks a question. Not here though.

Its been to cold here to go out and tinker with it (low twenties during the day). Some folks have pointed me toward the voltage regulator; if the computerized thing even has one, that is.

haha...I certainly understand the 20 degrees! My wheeler is in an unheated garage too. My wife and I spend this time of year going to work and filling the woodstove! There is a voltage regulator. I am curious as to why they feel "hitting the curb gently" would cause an issue with that?

Mine's under an open carport. I described bumping the curb simply because it happened; there was a slight jolt and I don't know if it did anything. If I didn't mention it someone would blame me for concealing the truth.

I don't know about this forum. Not too many helpful people around here.

Probably should have posted in the Repair and Maintenance section...

The specs section (which is where you posted this) is more for finding part numbers and dimensions of things and such... Not really for repairs. That's why there's a repairs section. Also, the General Discussion section is often used to discuss problems of varying nature.

There's also a Model-Specific Discussion area where you can talk about things that are specific to your Sportsman, Sportsman XP, Magnum, Scrambler, etc etc...

Not many people come to the "specs" section very often... I'm sorry you didn't get a quick response to your question. Using a more appropriate section will get you answers much quicker in the future. I've found this to be a very helpful forum, with a plethora of valuable knowledge of these machines.
