    Exclamation 2000 Polaris Genesis bilge pump and reverse now working

    The bilge pump doesn't work, I have tested the wires and I am not getting any voltage, with the ski off and pushing the bilge button or with engine running. I have no idea what is wrong with reverse, It used to work and now doesn't. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Both the bilge pump and reverse are powered from the Orange wires.

    Check the Orange terminals and wiring. The bilge switch is supposed to directly connect the Red/Purple battery power to the Orange terminals.

    Somethings is wrong with the Orange wiring, or the power feed to the Orange wiring.

    When the engine is running, Orange is supposed to be powered through the LR-505 module.

    The bilge pump (but not reverse) also has a 3 Amp fuse.

    Sometimes a bilge pump will simply fail. You can remove it from the hull, and directly connect it to 12 volt power for a test.

    I have tested the bilge pump by connecting it directly to a battery and it works fine. I will check the fuse today.

    Thanks

    Anyone have a part number or know where I can find both these items, I have tried to google the LR-505 module and found nothing... Thanks

    You need to actually trace the power flow, since the reverse system does not involve the fuse.

    When you hold the bilge button down, reverse should work.

    If Reverse doesn't work, then trace the power flow through the bilge button to the Orange wires, and on to the Reverse switch and motor. Somewhere along the way, you should find the problem.

    Until you have figured out why the power is not flowing, even when the bilge button is held down, there is no point in replacing the LR-505 module. It may be just fine.

    Note that some LR numbers have been updated over time, so the newer part number is the preferred part number.

    The actual Polaris part number for your LR-505 module is either 4010648 or 4010304, with the former being the preferred/newer version. The 4010304 version is known to fail.

    Fuses can be found at Radio Shack.

    Ok, So I got into the electrical box and found the 3Amp fuse was blown. This goes to the bilge pump correct? Would this also effect reverse? I went to Radio shack and they don't carry that size fuse, so going to Advanced Auto tomorrow.

    Thanks

    Edit: Corrected previous incorrect physical fuse length

    Bilge fuse is a 7/8" long 1/4" diameter AGW type fuse, 3 Amps, 32 volt rating


    MFD fuse AGC/3AG type 1/4 Amp, such as Radio Shack Catalog #: 270-1002

    that wasn't the one that popped. It was a smaller one in the middle of the board. 32v fuse... Maybe had wrong size fuse in the first place?
