Open Question

What electrical problems can occur with a 2007 Polaris Switchback 600?

My sled for some reason has power outages which ranges from the headlight, dash, and even the motor. This only happens when i am going over very rough terrain (chisel plowed fields), or when i am following another sled and the snow dust hits me. Although, when this happens i throttle it out and it seems to go away. But, when i do this my dash reads "secure engine", and everything goes back to normal.

There are three ATV owners forums on line. Register with one of them and one of the fellow owners is likely to have the same model as you do and can tell you specifically.
