Hello everyone,
I have a 2002 Grizzly 660, I just put a new battery in it and it continuously is dead over night. I took it out charged it, tested it and its fine, I then put it back in hooked up the positive cable, but left the ground cable off, I made sure everything was turned off then connected a multimeter from the neg. terminal to the ground wire, the meter showed a 10 volt draw. I then started pulling fuses one at a time hoping to find the circuit that was causing the draw, but after pulling ALL the fuses it is still showing a 10 volt draw! Can anyone help me out on what might be causing my problem? I might add that Im severely color blind and though I have the original service manual its very hard for me to do wiring since I cant see the true colors of the wires. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Best regards to all,
Jeff

Hum.....just saw this thread. Generally there are replies without waiting 16 days.
I bet you have a rubbed/chaffed wire between the battery and the fuse block.

Thank you Ridgeway81432, I really appreciate your input, this problem has been driving me nuts! I have the manuals but Im colorblind real bad so I cant tell what color each wire is so when I try to trace each circuit I keep getting fouled up when I cant follow the wire completely, if you follow what Im trying to say, its just agrivating. Im putting a shut off on the battery so at least it wont be able to drain my battery every time I shut the machine down, but Id still like to fix the problem so I will certainly look for a rubbed or chaffed wire were you noted. Thanks again.

Also, 660's are known to rub wires along the upper left frame rail along the gas tank area.

Thanks again for the info, I wasnt aware of that so I will check into it. Wiring sure can be a pain, can take hours and hours to find a problem that takes 5 minutes to fix!
