Default Is this light killing my sled?

Hey,so ive put a 80w xenon bulb into my sled, just to get it a bit brighter, but other then that,no modifications have been made.On the EFI board LED,im getting the flash code*3 long,2short*,its preventing my sled from starting.

*the stock bulb was a 60w halo
*the sled is a 93 polaris indy 500 EFI
*i put a slightly smaller battery in,it has the same voltage,just that ccr is a bit lower,it was the only one that my local mechanic had,it was brand new at a good price!Free!


Suggestions/help?

thanks

You have too much draw for the system with the 80w bulb.

That's an extra 1.6 amps - kind of a big load but wouldn't hand or thumb warmers take more?

Hey,so here is just a theory that i have come up with in my head,since there is a larger draw on the electrical system,the EFI is then not getting enoph power to make the fuel pump run,which is then bogging out the machine?

seem reasonable?

im putting the stock bulb in tommorow,i just parked her at a friends house,so ill do that tommorow,was just wondering before i acctually did it.

Can't see why not.
Give it a try and report back on how you like it.
