that part of wiring harness started blowing fuses. you have white wire coming off battery that's one side of the fuse link and another white wire coming from inverter . the white wire coming out of harness is other side of fuse link...then they meet together and form a crossing then there is a white/red wire that joins that crossing...then the red/white wire plugs into black/yellow wire because I still have the connectors..but the B/y wire is a ground wire...I need to see a picture of all that wiring wires together ...I just don't understand it...I replaced thall that wiring there but I guess I got it wrong its still blows the fuse ...I need to see those wires and how they all intersect and those B/Y grounds on up the harness cause it burned all those wires together...Can you help?

Look across the front of the unit bumper area, if not there then lift up the seat and on the seat rail, 17 digit numbers

IT IS A 2001KAWASAKI KAF300 C5 MULE 550...CANT BE THAT MUCH DIFFERENCE..i HAVE BEEN THRU ALL THE WIRING...
Expert:  Kenny O. replied 6 months ago.

OK, I will give it a guess, if its not correct the information I give back to you doesn't work, its not on me, this most of the time creates more confusion and will likely make you chase your tail more ? I will tell you up front I don't like doing it this way and there are about a half dozen configuration of harness's, remember who is the specialist here.

JUST FORGET IT ALL KENNY AND HAVE THEM REFUND MY MONEY THEY HAVE TAKEN FROM MY CARD...I AM SURELY NOT SATISFIED WITH YOU AND YOUR ATTITUDE...THAT'S ALL FROM ME....

Thanks, ***** ***** sorry that's how I like to do things as my results show that, I'd rather be a big help that half way. I was planning on opting out anyway.
