Where are the fuses?

2000, Sportsman 500 Are all the fuses together or are some of them in-line?
Tell me where to look. Also, what is in that black sealed cover (tiny MRE bag) midway on the left side of the frame?

You fuses are all in the front, just above the radiator. The tiny black MRE bag (Excellent way to describe it by the way) is a relay which can get water into it and go bad cuasing you to not get any power anywhere. There are a few threads on here about replacing it with aftermarket relays. The MRE bag is supposed to make it water-proof. I stress, "Supposed to"

Thanks Kicker but I must really be dense, I can't find fuses just above the rad on my machine. On the 'firewall' there is what appears to be the CDI box, maybe a relay of some kind and there is a cluter of Male-Female connnectors. Have not found any flat or round fuses. This is for 2000 Sportman 500

I guess I owe you an apology then siralop. I didn't think there were any great changes between 2000 and 2004 (which is what I own). On mine once you pull the fron track and the little center front panel (the hood) the fuses are right there staring you in the face. But if you've found the cdi box on the "firewall" then you've obviously got the "hood" off already. I just tried looking at the parts diagram for a 2000 and it doesn't give an optiong for wiring so I guess I am as stumped as you are. I tried. Maybe try starting a new thread with "2000 sportsman 500" in the title. That should get anyone with the same machine to look into the thread. Give you a better chance of finding someone who knows exactly.

The single cylinder engines have a Power Distribution Module that serves the same function as the fuses and relays. The PDM is located above and just forward of the radiator and looks like a silver box with fins on it.

Yes, thanks a bunch. I'm not near the machine right now, I'll check to see if I can locate the PDM. I'm beginning to think my 'friend' unloaded this thing on me a JUST the right time for me to have to replace EVERYTHING.

Is a PDM the same as a ECM?

Well, I went back and looked, I didn't see a block with fins that might be a PDM. OK, I'm lost. I could have a .50 fuse burned and I can't even find the %^&*%^ thing! UNBELIEVABLE
