    96 Polaris 1050 no spark!!!!

    i have a 1050 it had the electrical system fixed 4 years ago, i assume they upgraded it ($800). i went to pull it out last week and i crossed the battery cables and the bilge pump started running, i switched them and now i have no spark. i checked the fuses inside the electrical box and the reset. i checked the battery with it cranking and it was 12.6v. i tried unplugging the display and also tested the cut off switch. i am not sure if the no spark is from me installing the battery wrong or something happened during the winter. has anybody ever heard of this? i don't know what else to check. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

    Hold down the Bilge pump button. See if it will start.

    If 1996 even had a Bilge button

    I don't think it has a button, the wires go to a sensor in the exhaust?? Any other ideas ?
    Thanks

    The wires from the bilge pump run to a sensor in the exhaust. I don't think there is a bilge pump button.

    Not in the factory wiring configuration.

    Bilge pump has a pair of Orange + Black marked wires that run into the electrical box.

    The exhaust temp sensor should be a Tan wire, which also runs into the electrical box.

    Orange wire and Tan wires should not be connected, they do different things.

    Put the wiring into the proper factory configuration, as a starting point.

    Each terminal group on the terminal board is marked with a color code. The only slightly tricky ones are Tan, which includes the gray spade connector from the CDI.

    And the Service Bulletin (PWC-00-05) modification for the CDI Red/Purple wire being moved to Orange terminal.

    Hi,
    I'm changing the cdi and electrical box in my 2001 Virage, swapping in an electrical box and cdi from a 2002 Virage. I don't see the "Tan" marking for where I am supposed to connect the tan wire into the 2002 electrical box board. There was a spot marked Tan on the 2001 board, but I don't see it on the newer one.

    Is there a Gray terminal?

    I am not near my wiring diagrams to check what the differences are between those two terminal boards.
