Polaris Digital Wrench .: Procedures & Solutions .: Turning the Communications Port's FIFO buffers OFF

Turning the Communications Port's FIFO buffers OFF

Version: ALL

Important:
Turning off FIFO Buffers port is only recommended for certain situations where there are communications problems on Sportsman/Ranger 700/800 and Frontier using the original Diagnostic Interface Cable.
