13 sportsman 550 eps gear indicator not working

Recommended Posts

Yeah inspecting the wiring is a good start..  Check the fuses. Check the wiring for anything chafe or unplugged, then get the manual and start reading.

It uses a CAN digital communication system and the various computers onboard all communicate and record any problems. The communication is all along two wires and each computer recognises it's own messages and responds to them, we can't test for communication with a test light or multimeter. We can test the units are connected, but we can't read the digital signals.. we have to use the polaris software on a laptop or rely on the stored trouble codes we can get out of the dash to diagnose problems.  The trouble codes are only an indication of a reading that is out of range and doesn't necessarily mean the component is faulty, it could be a wire broken, or a mechanical fault causing the bad reading.

Check the fuses and wiring, then try to read the trouble codes and let us know what they are.
