So, I found myself in the only 5' deep water hole in Moab with the King Quad. Before I could get off it swallowed water at idle and died. The river water was not very clean. I pulled the plug and pumped the water out of it with the starter. I cranked on it and it popped for a second and then was done. Towed it back to the trailer. When I got home I checked the compression and it had none. I have a factory service manual. Disassembled and found the rings stuck in the piston lands. New rings and back together. I try to start it and get a C12 code CKP - crank position sensor. Troubleshoot and find it to be shorted. Installed aftermarket CKP, still get code. Check voltage on new CKP and only get 4.5V, manual calls for 5V minimum. Pulled every connector apart on vehicle and cleaned. Have continuity from CKP sensor side of connector to ECM harness. Install a known good ECM from another 2005 KQ I have. Vehicle fires and I let it run for 10 minutes. Shut it down and put the original ECM in and get a C12 code again and won't fire. Put the known good ECM back in and get C12 and no fire. Tested both ECM's in the other KQ and runs well on both ECM's. Installed a used stator and CKP. Still get a C12 code. Check used stator, 200 ohms and 6.5 V out of the CKP at the ECM harness. Checked ground at ECM harness and it is good. Checked spark with spark plug and without, none. Checked resistance and peak voltage on coil and it is in spec.
This thing has me baffled. All of the electrical possibilities seem to check out. Might be far fetched, but could the rotor key have sheared when it shut down suddenly when the cylinder filled with water? I know rotary lawn mowers can shear the flywheel key when the blade stops suddenly from a rock or stump. If the key is sheared and the flywheel is out of time by a few degrees could this be giving the C12 code? The voltage output is correct but at the wrong crankshaft position (wrong time).

I'm hoping someone can help me diagnose my 2008 King Quad 450 no start
A couple days ago, after running for a few hours at low speeds (2-3mph wiping weeds), seat got hot, motor started to stumble, and we turned it off. Gave it a few minutes to cool down, turned on key, dash flickered, then lit up, I tried to start, but it did not turn over, dash died like the battery was dead.
Quad acted like it was overheated, but I noticed a lot of heat coming from battery area. Checked battery voltage, showing 10.5 volts.
I had something similar happen last year, and it ended up being the regulator/rectifier. It killed the battery that time too.
So, this time I pulled the battery, it stayed quite warm for over an hour. Put it on trickle overnight. Next day it showed over 12 volts. Took it to advance auto and had it tested. Bad cell. Bought new battery.
Installed new battery. Now when trying to start, it seems normal, turns over, and begins to start, but immediately dies.
I have ordered a new regulator/rectifier that will get here tomorrow. But today, I pulled the regulator and tested it according to the service manual. Ran a diode test using my multi-meter between all the pins on the regulator. They were all within range according to the service manual.
Unplugged stator, and tested it. Showing 1.9 ohms between all pins. This is out of range. Should be .1-1.0 according to manual. However, I have a brand new spare stator, and that one also reads 1.9 ohms. I'm guessing my multi-meter is the problem?
Used a paper clip to jump pins and put the dash into "dealer mode". Shows C00. No codes.
Last time the regulator failed, I was able to remove the negative battery cable and do a leak test with the multi-meter. I observed a voltage leak, and when I unplugged the regulator, it would stop leaking. This made it clear to me that the regulator was the problem. This time, no voltage leak. Also, last time the regulator failed, it would still run fine with a new battery, it just wouldn't charge. Now it won't stay running for more than a second. I'm thinking this could be something else. Any ideas?
Polaris Off-Road 2023 Lineup Highlighted by Rider-Inspired Updates, Dynamic New Trims & Industry-First Connected Vehicle Features
New RIDE COMMAND+ Enhances the Ownership Experience with Connected Vehicle Features, Provides Convenient Access to Vehicle’s Health and Location via Smartphone or Mobile Device
New GENERAL XP 1000 Sport Trim Opens the Door for More Riders to Get In & Experience Adventure; A Host of Rider-Inspired Updates Allow Riders to Feel the Thrill & Get More Done
-Polaris Off-Road, the world leader in powersports and innovation, today announced its 2023 lineup, comprising a dynamic mix of rider-inspired vehicle updates, fresh new looks, and the expansion of RIDE COMMAND+ -- a mobile-app that builds off its RIDE COMMAND technology to offer industry-first connected vehicle services.
“Over the last year, we’ve accelerated our pursuit to deliver the vehicles and performance our customers ask for. Whether it be the next-level performance capabilities of the RZR Turbo R and RZR Pro R, or the technologically advanced, all-electric RANGER XP Kinetic – we continuously raise the bar and set industry standards,” said Steve Menneto, President of Polaris Off-Road. “As the leader in off-road, we continue to innovate and evolve our lineup to serve a broad array of riders. The 2023 model year lineup is the latest example of our team’s ongoing commitment to answer the call from our riders.”
For thrill-seekers, the 2023 RZR lineup offers an updated color mix and fresh trim offerings, including a meaner, blacked-out take on the dune-dominating RZR Turbo R. For customers hungry for adventure, there’s the all-new GENERAL XP 1000 Sport—delivering strong, powerful trail performance at a great price. Already the ultimate machine for those wanting to get more done on the job, the RANGER XP 1000 NorthStar Trail Boss Edition expands its capabilities with a host of work-enhancing new features. And for the ATV community, Sportsman models offer exciting new color options, along with new CV guards on specific models for added durability.
Continuing its ongoing efforts to enhance the ownership experience, Polaris is significantly expanding its RIDE COMMAND service with the all-new RIDE COMMAND+. Building on RIDE COMMAND’s existing suite of industry-leading features, RIDE COMMAND+ helps riders stay connected to their vehicle through a robust, mobile-enabled service that provides a whole new level of vehicle information, security, and control. RIDE COMMAND+ is accessed through the Polaris app, RIDE COMMAND website, or the in-vehicle display system.
“Pushing forward with industry-first technologies has been a cornerstone of our success,” Menneto continued. “With RIDE COMMAND+, we’re unlocking a new wave of innovation for the off-road market that enables owners to manage and maximize their vehicle and riding experience through connected vehicle technology.”
From the latest technology to updates and enhancements that will appeal to a broad range of off-road riders, the Polaris Off-Road 2023 model year lineup includes:
RIDE COMMAND+ features vehicle-to-cellular connectivity that allows riders to conveniently check on the current vehicle’s status, while its Vehicle Health feature will run issue diagnostic reports and monitor fuel/charge levels to confirm the vehicle’s readiness. The RIDE COMMAND+ Vehicle Locator will be an extremely beneficial feature for hunters, or anyone enjoying the outdoors, when having to leave their vehicle parked. The Vehicle Locator feature delivers a pinpoint location to the machine. RIDE COMMAND+ delivers enhanced mobile technology for riders to connect, drive and adventure.
Adding to an already-robust set of offerings, Polaris will continue to expand the RIDE COMMAND+ service with even more industry-leading features using Over the Air (OTA) updates. Coming later in 2022, RIDE COMMAND+ will offer its riders added security with Location and Bump Alerts. Bump Alert, a 24/7 monitoring feature, will send a notification any time the vehicle has been bumped or moved. If moved, the Vehicle Locator feature will provide its latest coordinates. In addition, Polaris will introduce Ride Tracking+, where riders can automatically track their rides using the vehicle’s GPS location without having to use their mobile phone’s data. After the ride, riders will be able to generate a full report from the day’s ride, including time logged, miles traveled, waypoints and elevation changes. The report is a fun and helpful tool to not only relive the ride, but to plan future trips.
RIDE COMMAND+ will launch standard on all 2023 RANGER XP Kinetic models and all 2023 RANGER XP 1000 NorthStar Trail Boss Edition models. The service is available as an accessory add-on for all trims in the following 2023 models: RANGER 1000, RANGER XP 1000, RANGER 570, Sportsman 570, Sportsman 450, Sportsman 850 and Sportsman XP 1000. Polaris plans to further roll out vehicle compatibility for RIDE COMMAND+.
Riders can access the new service via the Polaris mobile app, web, or the in-vehicle, seven-inch touchscreen display system. Riders will receive a 36-month trial of RIDE COMMAND+ when purchasing the stock models standard with the service. Riders adding RIDE COMMAND+ via accessory will receive a 12-month trial. At the conclusion of each trial period, riders can sign up and continue the service for $99/year.
To activate RIDE COMMAND+, riders must download and login to the Polaris app and add the connected vehicle to their digital garage.
RANGER continues to set the bar high with several rider-inspired upgrades across its 2023 lineup.
The 2023 RANGER XP 1000 NorthStar Trail Boss comes packed with new upgrades specifically designed to meet the demands of hardworking riders.
