2013 Honda Rancher 420 starts then dies?

Recommended Posts

I have 2013 Honda 420 4x4 FPA It will start then run for 10-30 seconds die then won't start back up for a few minutes. Let it sit & it will crank & run again for 10-30 seconds then die again. Any suggestions? Thanks 

PS It was flashing codes for both the oil temp & water temp sensors I replaced them IT cleared the codes & quit flashing now it's doing this.

You replaced both sensors? Was it running hot? Try disconnecting your battery for 60 sec to see if that clears internal memory. Maybe its cutting off because of something else.

You need a jumper wire that shorts out 2 wires in the harness.the jumper is configured so you don't short out the wrong wires the process is listed in the service manual along with the part number for the jumper. Honda calls it an scs connector. The other way is with a scan tool

What's the fuel pump doing when it dies? I'll bet that there's a safety sensor that's shutting it down like oil pressure or something like that. Or it could be completely coincidental and you have a faulty fuel pump relay.

    • 2005 Polaris Trail Blazer 250 won't start

      Hi guys, trying to get a quad running again. It was running fine but the electric start did not work. My uncle was using it and the pull start snapped. So I replaced the pull start and electric starter motor. Now it just cranks and cranks but will not start. I have spark, I have fuel to the carb, I know this is a 2 stroke with a separate oil tank, what else should i check?

    • 2014 honda foreman 500 runs rough

      Hi guys new to the forum. I have a 2014 honda foreman 500. It started to lose power and misfire eventually stalls. It's hard to restart. When it does start it will stall when hitting the throttle. Smells like its getting fuel. I drained and put new fuel in tank but still same issue. I check for codes and have a code29 IAVC circuit. I'm pretty sure I set this code when I drained the tank. I disconnected it when I removed fuel line from injector. I used the fuel pump to drain the last couple ounces out of tank and also to check fuel volume. I did clear the code but have to ride it around property to see if it or any other code generates. I'm thinking an ignition issue. I was wondering if anyone else out there has had a similar problem with their foreman. I realize its hard to fix something without being in front of it but any advise would be appreciated. Thanks

      I just bought two 1985 TRX250's from my father-in-law. One runs great, the other not so much. The one is having issues with the shifter. The shifter seems to be resting lower than normal. When I press the shifter downward, it just pops back up. Any thougjts as to what the issue might be?

      My 2013 Honda 420 occasionally won't go into reverse. I don't think it is in the transmission as it does not make a click or noise. I think it is in the lockout. Someone told me when I ride near the ocean the salt can get on something. Any ideas?

      This bike has a straight axle that is moving horizontally in the housing in both directions about 2 inches. Has anyone had the same issue if so what did it take to repair it?
      Thanks..

      I have a 2005 Honda Rancher 2-stroke. It's been sitting for a while. Yesterday I started it up and it idles well.
      When I tried to drive it, it bogs down and misses when I accelerate. Drained fuel, added new fuel and carb
      cleaner, and let it idle for a few minutes. It still bogged down, and I noticed a fuel leak under the carb. There's
      a tube from the bottom of the carb with something that looks like a filter. The gas was leaking from the end
      of the tube. Anyone have any ideas as to what the tube is, and what it actually does?
