1 Answer

I have a dyt 4000. It was racing and trying to find it's speed than cutting out. I found a red wire feeding the carb that was grounding out. After I wrapped this wire in electrican tape I get nothing when I try to start it. It is not the seat switch. Is there a fuse somewhere?

    Yes, I thought that there must be a fuse somewhere but I could not find it. The solution confirmed my belief and told me where to look

There's a 20amp automotive fuse that is located in the main harness under the hood.
It should be easy to spot.

    Did you find the fuse and was it blown?

  • timr356 Aug 04, 2010

    Yes, I blew 2 other fuses until I got the short fixed. That fuse is down on the bottom and hard to find. The connector to the carb was not making contact after I changed the fuse. I jumped it yesterday and everything runs. I need to change out this entire wire. I am assuming this is most of the reason for it loping.

Sea talk failure

Remove all wiring from 4000 head, hook up only 12V, if seatalk fail continues, it is the head. if seatalk fail goes away, hook in instruments one by one until the bad head is found. Seatalk is 12V red, Ground Screen(bare wire) and Data yellow (pulsing voltage). good luck 847-746-0100 John Barry
