I ordered a polaris wiper/washer kit and installed per directions. Nothing works after install. They say to connect the 3 wires to the buss bar. There are 3 wires (Orange/white, red & brown). I have no power to anything. I've tested the washer motor directly and it works. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. This is the second one with the same results. Very frustrated. Any help would be appreciated. I get no help from my dealer or polaris because I am an end user and not a dealer.

Welcome to PRC!
If the buss bar you are referring to is the one with 3 terminals (probably under your hood), it's probably not wired. Polaris used to wire all three terminals on the older models, but lately, they only wire one, the "keyed hot" terminal. Not sure if this true on the new 570's or not. Easy to test with a meter or test light. If the other two terminals are not wired, you can order a harness from a dealer or make one up yourself.

P.S. If your dealer won't help you out with this type of problem, he's a jerk - I would tell him to pack sand then find another dealer.

One should be keyed hot, i think its orange? The other one is constant hot, oughta be red, and one is ground. If only keyed hot is on, then thats the hard one. Just get a wire coming from the battery for your constant hot (FUSE IT!!) and then a ground from either the frame right there at the bus bar, or run a ground wire up from the battery.

HOWEVER...look around a little bit..you may find a wire or wires from the fusebox to run to that bus bar. mine come right over from the fuse box to the bus bar.

thank you very much for the information. My top one of the 3 is keyed hot. I will look into the wiring harness and might also look to see how easy it might be to wire myself. My dealer just told me that he can't help me because they did not do the install.
