What should I do to test out what is wrong with my sled. I press on the brake and the lights go off. Additionally, when I hit some bumps, the light will flicker every once and awhile. I am thinking a loose connection. Any ideas.
I would say you have a bad ground or as said earlier, a bare spot on the power wire. if you dont find anything bare wires look for a bad ground. It wouldnt surprise me to see that all your lights are grounding through the tail-light, because they lost their original ground. So now they are backfeeding through the tail light, and as soon as you hit the brakes, it cant backfeed anymore so it goes out. Just thought i would give you another possibility to look for.
Polaris is my way out - Other people just use a door.
I had a bolt missing on the front of my seat, thus it moved around. Never thought nothing of it. Well. Where the seat connecter is there was a bit of extra wire. It was sitting on the edge of the wood base of the seat. Wore right through on one side. And when it rubbed the wrong way ground out my brakes. Thus when I apply brakes, not lights
