Hello everyone I have a 2004 Grizzly 660 the Spade connector on the starter relay with the red wires leading to the cluster keeps draining my battery the only way I can keep my battery charged is by unplugging that wire when I'm not using it if I test voltage between the red wire and the battery positive when the wires disconnected I'm reading battery voltage which tells me there's a short somewhere can anyone point me in the right direction of where to look for that problem thank you

The cluster needs power to maintain some information ie; the clock and codes. So there will always be some voltage drain. I'm thinking that something else is draining the battery or the battery is toast.

Good point on the memory.... I just replaced the battery... If I unplug the red wire from the harness every time it never drains... If I leave it plugged in it drains.

On my schematic the red wire leads from the relay to the regulator and to the fuse that protects the cluster. From that fuse it is a R/G wire to the cluster. The red wire also feeds to the main switch which feeds to most everything electrical on the Griz.

This indicates that if the keyed switch is bad there are many other components that could/will be energized.
Maybe try leaving the red wire at the relay attached and disconnecting the keyed switch.

There is a R/W wire leading from the kill switch to the cluster this wire is fused by the ignition fuse.
May also try removing the just ignition fuse. This would kill the ignition system and the pod but leave most of the other components with power.

Don't do both at the same time.

The ignition fuse is the 30 amp fuse on the relay correct? Also when u say keyed switch u are referring to the ignition key correct

The 30amp is the main fuse. The ignition fuse is #39 on the schematic.
There is only one red wire attached to the relay. It feeds to the regulator and to the pod fuse, the wire from the pod fuse is red and green.
Yes the keyed switch can be called the ignition switch.
Here is a 660 schematic

Sorry this can't be zoomed very well
