Recommended Posts

I have a honda rancher es 4x4 and the electronic shift has quit working and when ever i turn it on neutral just blinks. Could this be the angle sensor has gone out ?

Please include the engine size in your next post so I can add it to the thread title. I am not sure what you mean by angle sensor, but I do know that there are solenoids and mechanical actuators that could be malfuntioning. I would first try locating the solenoids responsible for sending power to the actuators. There will probably be one for upshifting and one for downshifting. If you can determine which one controls the upshift mechanism, try manually applying power from the battery to the lead that feeds the actuator. If it doesn't shift, the actuator is likely the problem. If it does shift, then try applying power to the low current input wire that activates the solenoid. If that makes the vehicle shift the problem is between the switch and the solenoid. If it does not, then the problem is likely the solenoid. A repair manual will be helpful, if not necessary, either way, I recommend getting one.

BTW, I am moving this thread to the Honda ATV forum.

Once again, please include the engine size of your machine. I do have a friend that has an '04 Rancher, I can check and see if his does the same thing when you turn the key on. I will probably see him tomorrow or saturday.

Thanks, I was pretty sure that the 400 was not available with the electric shift.
The 400 was an auto/thumb shift like the Rincon and Rubicon.

The neutral light blinking is giving you an error code. I have read many other post with similar problems and it was due to the angle sensor.

      Exploiting a loop hole in the law, turn 4 wheeler into rev trike
      for a long while I have been trying to get a real 4 wheeler street legal.
      the problem is with the state laws, if it has 4 wheels, its a car and has mega more rules.
      If it only has 3 wheels, its a trike and can be made from cobbled junk parts held together with duct tape and they will plate it
      I wonder if anyone would have insight on changing a 4 wheeler over to a single rear wheel?
      [ I can't afford some $40-60,000 canam or super bike modded into a car, rev trike kit ]
      I want something I can truly ride year round on and off road. Ive rode enough old Honda 3 wheelers that I know I do not want a traditional motorcycle trike. So the single wheel has to go out back.

      Hello. I am a new member as of today. I had a quick question to ask. I recently was driving mt HONDA RANCHER 2004 GPSscape 400 and my display stopped working. I was driving the atv and all of a sudden the speedometer and the service lights went out. Also the lights stopped working. I am still able to shift gears, change from 2wd to 4wd, and can still select if I want EPS or Auto. I have checked my fuse box and have changed a few of them around. It did not change anything. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what had happend. Thank you for your time- Trenton

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.

      I
      I bought a Honda 250sx 1986 but the exhaust is broken. Apparently it's not possible to order a new one. I checked to order one on others compagny but there's noting.
      Do you know which exhaust it's possible to install. Is there a company who sold an exaust to fit on my 250sx.
      Sorry for my english
      Thank you
      Marc
