    electrical issues

    a friend of mine brought his 1997 polaris sl900 over and said he hasn't ran it in 2 years and tried to start it. He went into the ebox and cleaned up the box a little and i guess he didn't put the wires back right so now it won't crank over. i found the connection to the reset button only had the power wire from the battery connection and 1 missing. I assume that a purple/red wire connects there but which one?. I tried the one that had a splitter, but still get no power to start it or no power to the mfd display. it does crank over when i jump the connections but no spark.
