Can Am X3 Electrical Wiring For Accessories

This video talks about the wiring options for accessories on the Can Am X3 and alternative way to protect the electrical system!

Circuit Breaker

Relay

Under dash pigtail

Taillight pigtail for Whips

Fuse block

I used 6 gauge wire for the battery to the relay to the fuse block.

If any of these items are out of stock you can search for the similar description in amazon and most likely find them form a different seller in stock.

    your camera work made me sick from the movement…wouldn’t it be better to just run the Switch Pros SP9100

    And when you wire a light bar with the fuse box you basically just run like 14 gauge wire positive and negative to the fuse box without any inline fuse or relay that comes in a wiring kit for a light bar?

    Thanks. I just got a x3 Max xrs and installed light bar and stereo from the Ignition in the bus bar. I’m wanting to do lighted wips but was not looking forward to running cables again, and thanks to your video discovered about the tail light option as power. Subscribed. What is the conector to tap into it called? Thanks!

    Could you hook the jumper from the relay to the buss bar in the channel, on the accessory end, instead of going the pigtail route like you did?

    What size lug hole from 6 awg wire to relay or fuse box?

    Nice video. Here is a link to the clamps used to mount the fuse block. This clamp mounts securely to a roll bar tube under the dash and give you a good place to mount the fuse block. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TNH72SG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Can you show a hand drawn wiring schematic?

  10. Efra X3 on November 10, 2021 at 9:35 am

    Do you have the link for the taillight spit connections?

    Instead of running a relay, could you just add a fuse box from the bus bar? It seemed like pretty heavy gauge wire that was run to that?

  12. Wayne Mass on November 10, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Nice video thanks. Have a question. Could you have ran the ground wire @ the fuse box to chassis ground at the front of the car or was there no good area to attach ground? Also curious what size fuse you are using on the lightbar.

    Hi, I have an issue with the steering wheel, it’s very hard to turn. I just bought a new DPS power steering but it still doesn’t work because it has no power to the DPS. Is that anything to do with wire? Please help me.

    Can you drop a link for your interior lights ?

    Good job on this video. I don’t know a lot about electrical stuff so some of it is over my head unfortunately. I have tapped into fuses in my vehicles to hardwire dashcams, radar detectors. I’d love to try it on my X3. Subbed.

    Hey so I just ordered everything! The only part I’m confused about it the pigtail part. The pigtail leaves you with a positive and negative. Negative goes to negative on new fuse box and the positive runs back to the relay? If that all correct lol how do I know which wire under the dash to pigtail off of? Any way to easily identify it? Thanks!!

  17. MDJAK on November 10, 2021 at 9:51 am

    Hey quick question. The description on Amazon says it plugs into firewall, not tail light. Can it be plugged into tail light? Ty.

  18. danumber11 on November 10, 2021 at 9:52 am

    First let me say awesome video and I love the fuse box idea!

    I have a question. Can you explain what you mean by you tapped in to the pigtail under the dash? Does that mean you ran the pigtail positive and negative all the way back up the tunnel to the relay you installed?

    I can see that the ground jumper from the battery went to the relay. But I also see another red small red wire going back towards the front of the car.

  19. Edwin Moreno on November 10, 2021 at 9:56 am

    Where did you run the ground from the pig tail? Back to the relay?

  20. Wayne Mass on November 10, 2021 at 9:58 am

    I have the same fuse box. Im having a hard time understanding how you mounted it under the dash. I see the area and the room for it but what did you mount it too? You mention a plate. Been staring up under my dash for 20min trying to figure out how you mounted that. Any help would be appreciated.

    Good job for making a video, that give a realistic approach to wiring all of the accessories that many of us install on the X3s. Too many folks utilize the factory posts to wire their accessories and I have seen many examples of too many loads being hooked up to the posts. This is one of a few videos we made, showing our approach to what I think is doing it better. https://youtu.be/lVyJwm1Ob5A

    I installed a particle separator which has three wires black red and orange were should I have these connectors? Thank you

  23. Line Trash on November 10, 2021 at 10:05 am

    Can you explain a little more about how you cut in the relay before the fuse box. I see power in and out and I’m assuming that the the other two wires ground and ignition came from the bus at the center counsel. And did you add another relay at fuse box can you explain what the pigtail under there is for. Is it to power the switch and what if you have multiple switches please help
