Hello, I am new to any forums including this one. I have a problem with my 2008 Polaris 500 as the fuel gauge is flashing and it is not low on fuel. Can anyone help me with this?
Thanks

could be the fuel float. might be stuck.....

if you can then disassemble of it... and clean it....
i used and still do it on my old seadoos. never had it done on an atv.

but it might be the problem. hope i helped.

are the bars flashing like low fuel, or is the entire gauge flashing off and on the screen? if it's low fuel it's probably either the sending unit is bad or just stuck, although they usually stick on full not empty. if the entire thing is disappearing off the dash then it's either a bad sender or a bad connection. if you unplug them the entire gauge vanishes from the dash, so a bad connection either at a connector or internal on the pump will cause flashing.
