Well I have one of those frustrating electrical problems, All of my dash gauges stopped working. I had been working on the horn button, got it working (contacts just needed cleaning). Went for a short ride and noted that none of my dash gauges were working. The smaller gauges light up when I turn the key on but go out when the engine is started, I have checked all fuses in the two boxes and all are good. I am assuming that I am not getting any power to the dash gauges but am at a loss as where to look next. I am sure with all the expertise that we have on this forum that someone can point me in the right direction to solve this problem.

Sure sounds like a dirty contact and/or bad ground. I hate electrical problems. Good luck and let us know how you are doing and what you find. I sure Kinarfi & Lenny will chime in, they are the real experts with this electrical stuff.

Rocmoc, your absolutely right as usual, Problem solved. What I did was to remove the horn thinking perhaps it was a horn problem. Well there are two wires that connect to then horn mounting bracket, one of which goes to ground and the other to the instruments. I initially did not connect the wires back up and that was the problem. Seems to me to be a funky way to ground the instrument cluster via a bolt holding the horn.

Thanks rocmoc and for those reading this thread FYI, and who would have thunk it!

      Looking for the truck bed components 2018 Textron 900 Stampede.  There is limited information available for the assembly.  Might need a parts list.

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.

      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap

      Bike was flooded in tropical storm.  Replaced ecu and coil. Motor turns over but no spark have 12volts on one wire of coil. How much voltage should be on other small wire? Crank position sensor is about 200ohms. . Cleaned plug with sandpaper. Want a wiring diagram to check voltage at ecu. I have update. The blue wire going to coil has no voltage when turning it over. The white with black stripe has 12vdc when key is turned to on position.also, how do I clean the connectors on ecu? I dont see how I can get a  screwdriver in there  to release them. Found a schematic.i still need to clean connectors though

      I thought the problem was electrical but I just found this in the oil filler tube. Does anyone recognize the part? I know I'll have to tear down the whole engine, and maybe I'll find the rest of it in there. Something beg enough to seize up the engine. That was the problem I was trying to diagnose.... 'Cause it's locked up. 
      Thanks in advance.
