ATV won’t move except in 4 wheel drive

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Artic cat 700 4 Wheeler and it will not move except in 4 wheel drive. Any ideas? 

 

Thank you, Mary

What happens when you try in 2wd mode? does it feel like it wants to move or do anything?

Look down at the rear driveshaft, is it turning?

Nothing happens, just revs up , like it’s in neutral

. It is either  splines have worn out on the  pinion shaft,or possibly  between the  crown  gear  and output to the axles. . When  you  have it in 2WD,  the rear differential is what moves your  machine . The reason  it moves in 4x4 is because the front differential   is pulling the  machine along. You'll  have to  take the  rear drive apart to  find  just what  is gone .

      I have had this ATV since new, and no work done on the system before. It has an intermittent issue with starting for years but getting worse. Cranks but no start or have to cycle power. No Codes. There are times it starts right up and then times it will not start at all.
      What I have done, new plug, new battery, new coil. Also, the manual I have has spec info for the H1 & H2, but when I check ohms & AC voltage & wire color, it is more in line with the H2 than H1.  
      Ok here is what I have done.
      1. new plug then new battery.
      2. checked and replaced the coil- primary was 5ohms and secondary was 20.4K ohms. Since my book said for the H1 the Primary should be less than 1ohm I replaced (new one had the same 5ohms, confused! H2 says 4.8ohms). Book says secondary should be 12k-20k ohms and it was 20K ohms. New coil did not correct the issue.
      3. Stator, AC output while running was good, about 75 volts AC no load between the three yellow wires (but mine are gray wires like the H2). Ohms were also less than 1 ohm.
      4. Crankshaft position Sensor. Again, H1 should have Blue & White but I have Blue & Green like the H2. I have 180 ohms across the Blue & Green wires, so this is good. But when cranking I have 2 volts AC. For the H1 book says 5 volts AC. But H2 says 2 volts AC.
      So, is my position sensor putting out low voltage or do I have the stator assy for an H2 in my H1 ATV from new?  Stator & position sensor are one assy. Has this ever been an issue that was noted? New Stator is $$$ so I don’t want to just shotgun a part. 
      Any help would be great!
      Thanks
      Chad

      Hey I just bought a can am renegade 800 X with a pretty aggressive tuner and 29.5 outlaws. I'm wondering how long I can expect it to last if it is well taken care of. All the usual wear items have been done and the quad has just under 3000km.
       
      Thanks in advance

      Hello! When I put my Bruin in reverse....reverse light comes on....and the quad backed up. I went forward, and everything was great. Then I tried reverse again, and the light would come on, but the engine would only rev up, it would not move. This has lasted for a couple weeks, then yesterday, when I started it - I tried reverse....and it moved, I moved it forward to try again, and then it refused to move again. I don't know much about these machines (Yamaha) but it seems like even though the reverse light comes on, something isn't telling the bike it's in gear....where should I start with this problem?

      My 1999 Artic Cat 500 ATV has started bogging down and backfires shortly after starting.  Any suggestion for a remedy?
