2008 arctic cat 700 efi 4x4 gauge has power, no outputs

Recommended Posts

New arctic cat owner, I've read alot on the gauge issues, but let me say I have power, good ground, the aux also has power, the memory has correct voltage but no output of any kind. Only the LCD color works. I have also fully removed EVERYTHING and cleaned it all... what I still possibly have a cut wire knowing that I have good power to the back of the plug and good ground to the back of the plug but no outputs of any kind?

You can download the service manual and wiring schematics here:

I would verify first that you do indeed have AUX power, popping that fuse would give you a blank display but it would still light up. 

Two common issues to look at, one is a broken wire in and around the steering column. The schematics will help you verify which pin does what for the gauge cluster.

If it is the gauge itself, try this trick. disconnect both battery wires and connect them together, leave it overnight, then re-connect them, If the gauge isn't fried, this will reset it.

My bet would be a broken wire, seems to be a common problem in 2006 - 2009 Cats. I had a 2007 model that had serious harness problems. Was easy enough to fix with the schematics and using some spiral wrap and loom to protect it, never happened again.

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ?

      Hello everyone, i have 2000 Polaris Trail Blazer 300 I’ve been stumped on for weeks. I’m having a lot of issues starting the quad. I cleaned the carb spotless because I thought it was a carb issue and bought a new fuel line because it wasn’t getting fuel. The carb gets fuel perfectly fine now but it won’t start. The spark plug I a little worn out but it’s good enough for just one start. The only time it does “start” is when I spray starter fluid into the carb. But it never stays on. It’ll start for a bout a second then just die out immediately even if you’re giving it some throttle and the choke is on. I have no clue what I should do. If you need more information, have questions, or have any slight idea what the issue would be and how I could resolve it. Please reply ASAP. Thank you.

      So, I've been having issues with my Bayou 220. It's gotten to the point where it was parked for 4 years just because of the issues.
      Issue 1, Grabby clutch: The clutch is adjusted incorrectly and grabs when shifting from neutral to 1st. It grabs before the engine has a chance to rev, which stalls it.
      Issue 2, Starter clutch blown out: The starter clutch is busted and spins free both directions.
      Issue 3, bad shocks: The springs or shocks are bad and the quad leans hard when getting on.

      I have a 2018 450 and the digital gause has started flashing on an off while driving. The backlit also goes on and off. It is worse when I hit the gas. The battery died a few weeks ago and I jumped it but its been fine until last night. Called the dealer and showed them a vid and they recommend replacing the gauge and its like 600 bucks. The machine has less than 100 hours on it. I would really hate to have to change it out. also the unit sometimes has trouble starting. Any ideas?
