2005 Honda Rancher Reverse Shift Popping

Recommended Posts

I own a 2005 Honda Rancher TRX400A5. it's well used but I'm running into a problem. When I shift it into reverse then throttle it up it won't move and the system "pops" several popping noises per min. the "ESP" lamp is flashing once then twelve times befor starting the process over again. I have changed all for of the wheel sensors (like the dealer said) I also have a set of directions to syncronize them

1. turn unit key to "on"

2. hold BOTH shift switches for ten seconds

3. hold in the "UP SHIFT" button for 10 seconds.

3. hold the "down shift" button for the same

4. rev eng for 10 seconds.

That doesn't work.

What now??

I'll see if I can get some suggestions from a friend of mine who has a Rancher.

* I added the year, make, and model of atv into your thread, to get better responses.

thank you for the edit AJMboy.

I should have mentioned that all the sensors have been replaced and she rides just fine going forward. however if I start and need to go in reverse it doesn't like that so much. it'll move, but not at all very well. Honda says something is out of tune. The calibration directions they gave me just don't work.

I bought it localy from a shop but he doesn't have the knowlege or desire to fix my problem. Not having a trailer is proving to be a problem.

I know that some machines have a rev limiter that keeps the vehicle from running too fast in reverse, if yours has one, it could be part of the problem, just an outside thought. Or maybe one of the new wheel sensors is faulty. I would double check every thing you have done, make sure all connections are solid.

      Hey just after some advice. I purchased the above mention bike back in mid May.
      I had the Occasional issue with starting the bike. When trying to start the bike It would make  a Clicking noise when the start button was pushed. 
      So I used the pull start all ok.
      I checked the battery and the starter solorid / relay and found the terminial had  corrosion on them.  
      I clean them up and have no issues since. 
      However last night the issue came back with clicking when pushing the start buttoned he time.
      Any ideas? Relay or starter motor?

      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?

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?

      The Hop-Up: You may be saying to yourself, “that’s a chick bike,” and you’re right. But honestly, it’s so much more than that. It’s one badass bike. http://www.quadmagazine.com/quad/features/article/0,24942,1587044,00.html
