2000 polaris sportsman 335 speedo failure no AWD

Recommended Posts

2000 Sportsman 335 lost the speedo functions. Don't need the speedo but need AWD.  Is there a wiring bypass that can be done to activate AWD ?

isnt there some wired in the harness you can short together that engage awd?  Have you look up your issue on yt?

heh good luck with that- those are like 300.  Is the display still working?  (like the digital readout with the mileage and all)

check the wheel sensor to se if it has become fouled with mud or something. if not jack it up discontect the wires hook on a multimeter and spin the wheel to see if it is making voltage. an abs sensor is just a small voltage generator that sends a signal to the ecm to let it know the wheel is turning.  probably also sends a signal to the speedo.

thanks @James Copeland, you answered a question I had about my 04 sportsman 500.  I will say on my bike, no wires run from sensor to ecm, but straight to the pod (speedo).  Dont know if its the same with all sportsmans or not...  I know its not the speedo on mine cause I just replaced it ($400:aargh:)

Well,  happy day for everyone. You can bypass the issue by putting the brown wiresof the wheel hubs to a frame ground and problem solved. The switch gives the hubs 12 volt,  the speedo gives it ground

      Hey just picked up another scrambler 850 was told the tps was bad.  This atv has been beet to hell.  Wiring has been tinkered with the crankcase has been replaced recently and the motor rebuilt (can see horizontal scores thru spark plug hole where it’s just been honed out and rebuilt)
      my guess is it was ragged out till the motor blew a rod and rebuilt but the clown that did it couldn’t get it to run again and sold it.  When I bought it it would pulse and smoke black at idle and die with throttle.
      New tps installed and it won’t run period.  I went to celebrate it and I’m getting 5 volts on 2 of the 3 wires running to the tps.  Is this normal and if so how should I celebrate it?

      Have a 2001 polaris sportsman 500 4x4 atv and when I put coolant in the radiator it starts leaking from the exhaust. The valves are sealed but it stopped making compression. Do I need to just replace the head? I just rebuilt the hole top end and this is the only thing +valves that I have not replaced and was wondering if that is why it's not starting up. Need answers please.

      I recently purchased a 2000 polaris xplorer 400 4x4.  When I bought it the starter was bad, speedometer didn't work,  and it had been sitting for 5 years. I replaced the battery, and starter. Changed all fluids, and got it running correctly.  Then replaced the speedometer in an attempt to make sure the awd would be available when needed.  And took it out for a couple hour ride with a buddy.  
      It ran great that ride with no serious problems just a little carb issues which I was able to take care of on the trails.  Then a couple days later I decided to take it out for a ride by myself,  again ran great no issues other than a couple times it seemed to cough and then take off again.  That day when I was loading it I noticed coolant dripping onto the trailer and the overflow bottle was empty.  
      Got home and decided to drain the counter balancer, when I did that I got about 3 cups of coolant. Im guessing that it needs new seals and all for the water pump.
      My question is how difficult is it to do the water pump and should I attempt it or should I send it down the road to the polaris dealership to get it done?

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.

      Has anyone found a good replacement for the stock cooling fan? Mine is going out and OEM parts are outrageous. Polaris sportsman HO XP 850
