    fixing MFD

    hey guys, I have a 96 slx 780 and the mfd doesnt work. It was like this when I baught it about a month ago. Is there anything I can do to fix it or is it just a lost cause? I know I dont need it but it would be nice if it worked.

    Have ya checked the fuse for it in the electrical box? There are 2 fuses in there. One for the bildge pump and one for the mfd. The 1/4 amp fuse is the mfd's.

    Replace the MFD fuse with another that has the same 1/4 Amp rating. Do not replace it with a higher Amp rated fuse.

    You need to download the 1992-1998 Polaris service manual from here.

    Yes, the electrical box sits against the battery.

    BTW, be sure the insulating plastic battery cover is in place over the battery. If the battery posts touch the metal case of the electrical box, it can short and cause expensive damage to the wiring.
