A switch is just that - it let's voltage pass or it doesn't. If the full-time on bothers you with a jumper, just put a $1.99 rocker switch inline with it. Turn it on when you're ready to drive, off when you park it.
Thanks for the link Travis, but I'm dealing with an odd ball ranger. The VIN indicates a 2002 series 11. My service manual doesn't show a 2002 4x4 wiring diagram for it. It shows starting in 2003 which matches up with what I'm seeing under the hood. Polaris customer service can't find a 2002 diagram. In addition, the VIN has only 16 alpha/numeric characters, not the 17 required for customer service. Jumper wiring it to bypass this switch concerns me because it feeds the alternator control switch. Don't want to fry other components.
