if you see any corrosion on the terminal blades replace them with nothing but panasonic relays. the napa ones are junk also.

corrosion is not the whole story. lennstang's sled the one where i found the initial issue was not corrosion. as lenn had dielectric greased everything. it was burned contacts in the relay itself. these can test good just like other things a ohm test is not very good. you need voltage through these to test. not ohm's. this is how i found lenn's problem. these ohm fine but weren't.

the only relays we found that work and have proven to last over time are panasonic relays.

thanks NSRick for the information on this.

i own a '15 rush 600 and my father has a '15 sb 600. both pro s's. the switchback has periods of total numbness where it just wont go as it should.

polaris dealers keep saying bad gas, amsoil is the problem, etc. no big deal.... maybe for them sounds like a few relays will probably get him past this headache. he has owned polaris for decades and is looking at ski doo cause the dealers are so rude about this sled's problems

Depending on the conditions you're in and how much you ride, the relays may be a "once a season" thing. My issue showed up near the end of last season, replaced the relays and ran great all season, now it's goofing off again.

As far as testing the relays, I suspect there won't be anything to find. Heat, vibration in a relay that is activated repeatedly for long periods of time will damage the contacts. Recall how problematic automotive battery connections can be. There is no shortage of energy in a battery but a little bit of corrosion on the terminals and all of a sudden it won't start. Low voltage circuits can't "burn through" crud in a connection.

just thought that i would bump this up to the top for the coming season...just found that my display doesn't want to light up unless i tap the relays. they were covered in dielectric grease and look fine...but some thing is up.

i got mine from digi-key and 3 relays shipped to me in ontario was $30.54 in case my fellow Canadian riders wanted to know.

Cheers....snow dance time!
