So today some buddy's and I were out riding, one of my friends got stuck so I used my winch to pull him out, not long after my bike started acting up. I would give it gas slowly and it would be ok, if I tried to hit it, it would just sputter. If it sputtered while driving if I turned the key to the off position then back to on real quick so the bike would not stop it would go like crazy for maybe 20 feet, the act up again. It got worse as the day went on, and the key thing stopped working. I got a code P0520 oil pressure switch functional problem, so I unplugged it and re-plugged it and it went away. It then started to sputter all the time, and it would stall if I left it in neutral for a minute or two. At the end I would give it gas and would barely move, the rpm's would go up but the bike would not move, just sputter like crazy and stall? It's a 2007 outlander.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a feeling it was the pump. How good is the E8213 pumps from Ebay??

Funny it all started right after you had a heavy electrical load on your quad. Before replacing the fuel pump, get a fuel pressure kit and check you fuel pressure, should be 51 PSI. It's quick and may eliminate the pump as the culprit. The error code doesn't really relate to a fuel pump issue. If the pressure is good, i'd start checking electrical connections.

I'd check your battery aswell. Make sure the cables are tight then be sure you've got a good charge.

Interesting. So when winching, should you have your machine running so not all of the load is on the battery?

Yes...because the motor charges the battery as it is running...If you don't run the motor, the battery will loose charge and you could be stranded because your motor won't start with a weak battery...
