2006 700 carb just died(electrical)

Recommended Posts

Hope everyone is having a great weekend,

While riding my quad just quit, I mean dead. No life on the dash, no crank and obesity no start. 

Had a quick look under the plastic, batt reading 12.7v power at the key switch.

Changed the power pack, still no luck.

Anyone else have similar problems?

I don't see a fuse box/panel, is there fusible links in the system? If so where di I start looking?

So what model ? Sportsman etc.. I'll see if I can find  manual.

Not just the kill switch got bumped off..  I think some of those have a connection board in the headlight..  So I've read.. 

And two years earlier model the power went into the key on a red wire and came out on a red/black wire..  Is that working ?

Then one R/b wire goes to a circuit breaker and then to the kill switch on the handlebar.  I don't know yours will be the same though. That's for a late 2004, with fuel gauge(which they mention as an identifier)..). Does your's have a fuel gauge ?

After going into the kill switch it branches to the lights and the key again for start.. so if neither lights nor start work, it seems likely to be before(the circuit breaker) or in the kill switch.. assuming the power is coming out of the key switch on the R/b wire. The wire goes in the the key, and out again, on spliced wires.. Might be worth checking the splices are not dirty.

Mech, thanks for the input/questions.

My bad, its a 2006 Sportsman 700 carb.

I have looked at the kill switch and all seems good, the lights light up but nothing on the display and no crank.

It dose have a fuel display if that is an identifier. A wire diagram would be best for me, from there I can trace power back, unless I am missing something common and obvious.

I have power to the key and power out when switched, odd thing is it drops voltage at the key to 2.5v after 10-15 seconds.

Mech, thanks for the pdf. I saw a manual in the downloads but need to wait for a couple more post before I can download.

With that being said I did manage to find the problem, carboned/dirty ignition switch of all things.

Pulled it apart, cleaned up all the contact pads and contacts, applied some dielectric grease, reassemble. Works like a charm. 

Thanks for all your input,

I had a spare SSCB, first thing I though of and replaced.

Picked it up at my local dealer as NOS they wanted to dump off the shelf. I grabbed it hoping it would correct a false engine over heating warning, no luck with that. 

They had a recall on these when they first hit the market. Oh well back on the shelf it goes.

      Okay so I bought this 1997 sazuki king quad from a guy and he had it for a few years. 
      He had it registered and on the trails last year but he said it bogged and backfired when he would try to drive it. so it sat for a year. 
      I bought it for 800 bucks and got it running that night and it ran great for a few days 
      But I parked it the other night and went to start it again and it was really hard to fire up and when I did it was bogging and idling high then low again.
      So I took the carb out and cleaned it (ended up doing it twice because it was still doing the same thing) 
      Now today I have it running slightly better, but it is still like 20% 
      I have been looking it up and trying to figure it out but I can't find the issue, has anyone else had this problem? I'll attach a video of it running and giving some throttle

      . . .  minding my own business and a blow down tree mugged me.
      If Id been rolling fast id be in a pretty bad way.
      Got out of it with the first black eye Ive had in decades.

      Hey all, Thanks for having me in the forum. I just purchased my first ATV and am stoked to understand more about it. 

      The first stupid question will be, what is everyone's maintenance schedule? DO yo follow the recommended intervals or build one yourself based on the machine. 
      Thanks in advance.

      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).
