    Power Sterring Issue. My power steering indicator on the dash keeps flickering on and off. I've noticed that the steering will stiffen up at times as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 700-4 delux. New to the form. Thanks guys

    Sounds like the power is getting cut intermittently. Tighten all the connections under hood and at battery.and welcome to the forum

    Are you talking about all the wire connectors or just the one to the power steering pump? Thanks

    Should be electric steering. Not like a car. Electric motor that has a control module on top. It sounds like one of the connections is loose.I would get dielectric grease and put on the connections.you have to unhook them and put dielectric grease on the plugs and rebook them back up.

    I have added on power steering, there maybe something different with yours being stock power steering.but it definitely seems like the power is being interrupted. Maybe at fuse too

    Well I put the dielectric grease on the the power steering plug. When I first did this the problem went away the day of. However, a few days later out riding and the problem is back. Not sure what else to do. I hate to take it to a dealer if it's a simple fix

    No loads are being put on. I checked the terminals and made sure everything was secure. The 700 was bought new last November. The main chassis ground location is that on right rear in front of rear tire on the frame? I'll have to check that.

    I believe one of them is in front of a rear tire. It’s been a while so I’m not sure on which one I think it’s the right rear.

    Got the battery tested and the battery was bad. Replaced it and as of now no issues whatsoever. Thanks for the help. Would have never thought it was the battery.

    Good deal. I have not had a single issue since I replaced the battery. I knew it had to be something simple do to the fact the 700 was less than a year old at the time this was going on and had only 120 or so miles on it plus never ridden hard at all. Glad this fixed your issue too.
