1997 kawasaki mule 550 - Battery problem

Recommended Posts

Hey,i had a dead battery in my 550, but when i took it off i forgot to look at where the wires came off. I remember the positive and negative wires, but there is one wire that i don't know where it goes. This wire looks like it is connected to a bolt or nut not far from where the battery is located. when i hook up the new battery, i cannot get any power. the only way to get power is when i connect this wire with the negative wire and then hook it to the battery, but when i do this, the break line ends up smoking. does any one know where this wire should go. Would it be some sort of grounding wire.

Thanks.

usually the ground wire is underneath that cooling fan, right where the engine mounting bolts are. Kind of below the Oil FILTER

I have a 2001 550.. so it may be different.

      Hi,
      Don't know much about anything utv but I figured out my fuel pump wiring harness needed to be replaced. Installation looks pretty straightforward, plug into fuel pump and plug in the two pigtails. Question is: one of the Pigtails on the old harness I am replacing had a splice in the black wire and attached to a bolt on the engine. Is this necessary?  Is the black wire, I'm assuming it's the ground, grounded at the other end of the pigtail?

      Hello,
      I have changed the battery , alternator and the regulator.
      I have the red battery light on indicating it is not charging.
      Is there something else that could be the problem to my battery not charging??
      Thanks

      I am trying to figure out the type of battery that I should get for my 2013 Cub Cadet Volunteer.  The old battery says it was 450 CCA, but I've been having trouble finding one with exactly that in the local stores.  My wife picked up a 575CCA (26R) from OReillys.  Will that work?  Or will I ruin something by increasing the CCA?
