    "08" Skidoo GSX 600 carb engine light
    Posted by Polaris500 on Tuesday, February 24, 2015 12:13 PM

    We had the hot light go on while riding in marginal snow for a few miles.  Not the red light just the engine light.  It flickered for 4 times then stayed on.  Book sez take it to a dealer.  The "09" sled riding with us had the same light go on but went out (reset it self) as soon as we got into good snow.  The "08" did not.  Dealer said have to put it on computer to reset the light. It wont go out by it self.  We have to ride in marginal snow occasionaly. Dant have any choice in this matter.  

    My question is How can we put this light out without having to go to a dealer everytime this happens ? This is not practical as we are at least 30 miles from the nearest dealer.  Can we buy a cheap code reader or what ever ? 

    Thanks

    there are aftermarket communication kits for reading and clearing codes but they are not cheap.If your only code you ever throw on that sled is an overheat i would suggest using a dummy sender and plugging into that to bypass the temp light switch and installing a real temp guage on it to monitor your motor temps .If your snowflap is damaged or is cut short it will effect how that sled cools also and if riding in marginal or hard pack conditions is a frequent thing then a set of scratchers might be what you need.

    Thanks   Already found out some info on dootalk.com.  Its called a B.U.D.S. computer system and BRP does not want the public to have it. Since 2009 people were talking about problems with dash lights. Cost is from $10,000 to $15,0000

    Only dealers can have them as it used to prep a new sled out of the crate and in the wrong hands (if a new sled were stolen in a crate) the thief could turn the sled on and do their nasty stuff to it.

    The public will never see anything that can be used in this way.
