Yes the red button is for the awd..the red and white wires are coming from the throddle body and they run to the circuit board under the black cover under the head light..

Sorry I was working all day give me a little bit and I will try and help you sort it out. 

If you look at the photo with the diagram it shows a ETC switch and an AWD switch. The ETC matches the color code wires  you mentioned and goes back to the hub safety switch. I would start by tracing the wires from the handlebars and work your way down to the controller and the to the hub solenoids.

Locate that hub switch and there should be a white wire coming off of it. That white wire goes to the handle bar switch.  
 

That white wire you are holding might be coming from the hub switch.   So start there and trace it back.

      Problem: The ATV starts and runs at idle perfectly. But as soon as I open the throttle, the engine starts to slow down until it stops. On the attached video you can hear the sound of how it works: see video below
      Prehistory: there is a Polaris Sportsman 500 1998, which for about 1.5 years stood in repair, including also replacing CDI with one taken from the same ATV. Finally, the vehicles were on wheels, traveled several kilometers and overheated - forgot to fill the antifreeze Came back home in small moves. The next trip started well, but after 10 km there was a feeling of a small drop in power (even as the vehicle got warm completely) but still drives. Next trip - the situation is repeated. The next test of ATV through time and a huge loss of power from the very beginning. The engine sneezes, does not want to go more than 5 mph.

      What has been done: the carburetor has been replaced with a new one (inexpensive, $ 40), a new spark plug, a new ignition coil, the engine head has been removed, the piston is in good condition, valves were corrected - but the problem was definitely not in them.

      Ignition control unit is suspected. Who faced similar? Please help in solving the problem.
      Thanks in advance.

      From what I've read, the only function of a resistor is to prevent radio frequencies from interfering with automotives with onboard computer systems. If the only function of a resistor is to prevent damage to a vehicle's computer system, then why would they not be standard for every vehicle equipped with a computer? Are there downsides to using them?

      I have a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500. The Speedometer got water inside of it and it sat for a long time. So now that speedometer is trashed to say the least and i need to find a replacement. I don't want to put up the cash for an oem one so i was wondering if anyone knew any good speedometers out there i could use. I've found many speedometers i like but don't know how i'd wire it up without the same connection points. Thanks, any input is appreciated

      Has anyone had any luck putting a different gauge on this machine. Would you happen to have the wiring diagram? 
    • By Larry Fox
      Just bought this ATV. Wondering if my gauge from a 2003 will plug in and work. I know mine does not have a fuel gauge, but if the rest works, I am in.
