My 2012 sportsman 500 ho lost all electronics while driving and I can't get anything back. Battery is charged and all cables tight fuses are good. If there are any other than the four at the front I don't know. Any help would be appreciated.

What were you doing before it died? By died does anything come on?

The last time I read a post like this the guy had traced the problem back to the voltage regulator, but there were no other updates if that was the problem or not. Then in another post a guy had some sort of short in his speedometer, he disconnected it and it ran. Is your machine fuel injected?

Another possible failure is the power control module (PCM). Look for a bad connector or water intrusion.

Thanks for the help. Found problem. Was just loose connection on light on off switch on the handle bar. Feel stupid but at least it cost nothing.
