    Got it back Saturday, dealer changed the fuel pump. It was blowing fuses for them also, they hard wired the pump & nothing happened I hope that’s all it was. Had it out twice & so far so good....

    What do you mean by "they hard wired the pump" I hope they did not take the fuse out of the wiring? If this is the case you need to have a good fire extinguisher and a good lawyer!

    I have a feeling he means that they hardwired the pump for diagnostic purposes....at least I hope.
    I assume they verified the old pump was bad by eliminating the wiring on the machine and applying a direct 12v. After it was verified bad, they changed it out and hooked up properly.

    Went around the fuse to see if the pump would run (test it) did not remove fuse....

    Dang, I'll be keeping an eye on this issue. Keep us posted . I hope it's all repaired now and is now remains trouble free for many years to come. I just bought a brand new 2019 Yesterday.

    2013 XP 800 Ranger, Three 2017 Polaris 570 Full Sizes. All subjected to hard ranch work, long hours and rough conditions. 5 years or bust!

    I can imagine that a bad fuel pump could be pulling too many amps and blowing the fuse, just have never seen or heard of that actually happening. Glad you got it figured out
