Default Throttle position sensor

I am the second owner of this sled. Went to put a handlebar riser on. When I removed the pad, the 3 wire plug was disconnected. If I plug it back in, it dies when I take off. If this is the throttle position sensor, how do I correct it? Is it in the handlebar housing I need to look, or is there an actual sensor that could be bad?

It's not a throttle position sensor, it's called a TSS or throttle safety switch. Do a search or 2 on here and you'll find lots of info. Basically either try replacing the little plastic bushings and pin for the throttle lever and if that doesn't work you need a new assembly. Very common on cats.

That plug controls the tss and the killswitch ones a ground wire and the other 2 are power for each one. Now while your sleds running take a piece of wire and jump it from the single male end on the sled side of the plug to one of the female plugs also on this side once you find the killswitch tape the wire into place and you've bypassed the tss

Depends on what year you are talking about. You have your closed and open ignition systems. If it runs with plugs unplugged, you have an open system. Vis versa for the closed system.
'98 they started with open systems...

Good luck..

Previous owner already disconnected it. Sleds are known for it. Leave it unplugged.

Out of curiosity is this a mountain cat or pantera or something?
