Arctic cat 2006 400 lcd display

Recommended Posts

Having a problem on my 2006 400. LCD display will not power up. Check fuses under seat seem ok. Is there any inline fuses I should know about....Any help?

First thing, try unhooking the battery for a while, 20 minutes is supposed to be plenty, but overnight is better. Sometimes that resets it. Otherwise, as long as the fuses are ok, take the pod off, and check for a loose connection.

Thanks, I'll give it a try....Have you ever had this problem? Nobody I ride with has ever had anything like this.

Yeah, but mine was self inflicted. I did a back flip, which smacked it off the ground pretty hard. If I hadnt' been under there to cushion the blow it might have been really damaged bad.

Unhooking wasn't necessary in my case because I found a blown fuse. Get this, the headlight fuse. Mine would illuminate, but was showing blank everything.

Anyway, conventional knowledge is that unhooking the battery will reset it. If it doesn't, you may be in for another pod, but make sure you check all plugs and connections.

On my 2007 400 the pod is connected through the accessory port. The fuse for the accessory blew and the pod went out. It would light up, but no instruments. Check to see if you have power on the accessory port, that might be the clue you need.

Did you get it up and running yet?

Also corrosion builds up on the conector where the wiring harness plugs into the cluster. Take the connection apart, clean it with compressed air or something in that order. Then seal with di electric grease.

There is also a pinch point for the wiring harness near the handle bar riser. Check for worn wires.

If you still have problems I know someone who fixes them for a hobby send me a pm and I will fill you in.

Thanks all for the advice. I have it up at a cabin I have in Pennsylvania, so I can only check on it on the weekends. I plan to go up this weekend and try all the fixes out. I did not check the acc. port as Mike suggested, but it is the same problem I'm having. the back light will light but nothing else. I did check the fuse, but I will recheck it and also disconnect for a night. I will let you guys know how I make out.....also if anybody else knows of anything let me know...

Thanks,

Ed

A thanks to all who gave me advice on what to try. I unhooked the battery over night and it reset it self. I rode for a few hours yesterday without a problem!

Thanks,

Ed

Glad it worked, and thanks for letting us know. Of course you never know if it'll happen again, or what caused it, but as long as you can reset it life is good.:wink:

Just bringing this back up...2008 AC 400. My LCD display turns on, but the display is messed up. I can only see a couple things on the display. If I push down on the display screen, I can start to see everything, but when I let go it all does away again. This quad has been driven twice since I bought it, so I really dont think anythings damaged, maybe just loose. Any ideas? also how do you take these things apart?

You have to remove the two plastic screws (be careful not to strip them) under the front of the pod. Then the key switch. The pod swings up from the front then out from around the bracket in the front. Unhook the harness and blow the connection out with compressed air. If you want there are two screws to take the display off. I do not recommend taking it apart but if you do, do it slowly. Clean everything with electrical parts cleaner and reassemble. Use dielectric grease in the connector and hopefully that works. Let us know how you make out.

took out the display, cleaned the connection, plugged back in. NO GOOD. something inside the display is broke. This at has seen riding time twice......it has less then 3 hours on it. And my warratny ended a mnoth and a half ago. BULLSHIT, I can deal with out it, I think it was $330 for a replacement.

I honesly liked the analog display better, atleast it would tell you what gear you were in!!!!!! (i have 5 spd.)

I am going to see if my friend cleans them. He is able to swap out the leds to different colors and stuff. I know you can disassemble the display and clean the circuit board with contact cleaner. The display is a common problem on cats. If you want to try and e-mail my friend directly PM me and I will give you his contact info. I don't know if is against forum policy to post it in the thread.

No problem posting his email address, however I personally would do it through PM's.

      I dont like doing  upholstery work.. but cant afford for someone else to do it for me so here's my go at it... picked up the staple gun at harbor freight 1/4" long staples... ordered the cover off of ebay.. the guys said to get this material as it is more forgiving... it's like a tweed nylon  stuff... and not the fake leather stuff... here are the before... I did trim the old one so it wasn't rippling under the new one..but held the foam on the seat back..in pics is what was left of old one after I trimmed it...

      Have a Bayou 400. sometimes when I press the start button i hear the solenoid click but the starter does not engage. Here is the strange thing though, when that happens if I kick the kick start just once then press the start button starter engages normally. Any ideas?

      Anyone familiar with these models? Its a new to me quad, picked it up for basically nothing... Just time and materials now, this looks expensive.

      Hey all new member so I'm sorry if this isn't the correct place to post, but I'm having trouble with a 2000 polaris magnum 500 I just acquired. The quad ran when I got it but was having problems that sounded like the camshaft, and sure enough camshaft lobe was pretty much gone, so we replaced the camshaft and exhaust rockers and now the quad doesnt have spark. We had the quad running right before we tore the old camshaft out and now no spark. Anybody else ever have a problem similar? We've been checking for loose wires, checked grounds, and double checked timing but cant get it figured out so any advice would be appreciated! Thanks

      AL righty I did some trading around this weekend and ended up picking up a few 4 wheelers for cheap. I ended up with this one for $500 in it total and well the guy told me it dropped a valve. I haven't really messed with it at all. But this weekend I am going to try and start working on it some to get it running before winter time frame. So what I am asking is a couple of questions.
      1. First off where do I start I tried pulling the pull cord and could not get it to move at all.
      2. I need to get a service manual for this 4 wheeler where can I get it downloaded for free?
      3. what do I need to look for and how do I go about this really. I do have experience with 4 wheelers but this one is a little different to me than others because its a V2 and I have no clue where to start internal on the engines. Most of my experience is on the outside portion of troubleshooting on theses wheelers.
      Please no smart butt answers as i am new to here but just wanted opinions on where to start. Please and thanks wink:

      Hello, well back to where I was last year with this carb. Took my 250 to the mountains for the first time this year and blue smoke, too much gas again. I can't believe that this carb gives me this much trouble. Seems like the choke is stuck but the cable moves freely. Anyone else ever experience this issue? Do you think a new choke cable would maybe resolve this?http://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/images/smilies/arghh.gif
      OK it was the choke. Put on all new cable and plunger and she is running 100% again. So now the question is, is the carb getting worn out where the plunger needle goes in the small hole and when I use the choke the needle end doesn't get lined back up with the hole?? We'll see how it runs and now that I know what the issue is I can always pull the choke plunger out and reinstall if I start having this issue again.
