Indy Super Sport Wiring Issue

- Advertisement -


Dear Motorhead,

I have a 1997 Polaris Indy Super Sport 440 Fan and went to take it for the first ride of the year and had no headlights.

All other lights are working including the high beam indicator on the instrument cluster. Hand warmers work fine too.

I measured the voltage at the headlight plug and found it to be about 2.0 VDC depending on RPM. No obvious shorts or bare wires anywhere either.

Any thoughts?



Thanks for your email!

I didn’t read that you had checked the light bulb and/or replaced it. I’ll assume you did.

The next thing to do is to check voltage in front of the headlight connector and verify the connector itself is not faulty.

If this does not fix the issue then you need to back-trace the wiring to the main harness and see what’s going on.

Obviously the source of the power is same for all the other items you say are working 100%. This means you must have a wiring issue – plain and simple.
