1995 Polaris Xplorer 400L dies in forward gear

Recommended Posts

Anyone,

I have a 1995 Polaris 400L Xplorer that dies everytime I put it in any forward gear. That is unless I push the overide button. Then it acts like Reverse does when your not pushing the overide button. When you put it in reverse it runs like it should but still only runs like the overide button is not pushed. When you push it there is no change....

So in short.

When going forward I have to push the overide button to get the atv to move

When going in reverse i'm unable to utilize the overide button to exceed normal operation.

When in nuatral I have to push the overide button to achieve smooth idle or it dies. When in any forward gear I have to do the same for smooth idle.

When in Reverse the atv will idle smooth without the button pushed.

I hope I haven't confused anyone but this is really starting to get under my skin! :mad:

Thanks,

Tom

Sounds to me like a gear selector switch, the override solenoid, or neutral safety switch. I don't have a wiring diagram to be sure...but it definately sounds like an electrical switch issue.

I'm wondering if that is some sort of limp mode...nah..maybe it's too early of a year.

Ow my head hurts. I agree with Ajmboy, you probably have an electrical issue. Start checking the wiring and switches in the override curcuit/rev limiter curcuit.

Well I figured it out....

Ended up pulling wire by wire until the problem cleared. When looking at the front of the wiring panel... it was the bottom left Black Wire...

I believe it was an issue somehow with my override button grounding out when not depressed.

Now I have full speed in reverse without using the override.... and no issues with any other features.

      Installed new battery was told that’s what was wrong when hit start button I hear 1 click then nothing?  Can the battery just not have enough amps to crank the starter the first time ? I trickle charged it overnight thought it was enough!

      x   just bought this expedition 425 and the Speedo needle does not work. The lights work for the shift indcator. So is this an electronic Speedo or cable? Is there a way to fix it or will I have to replace the unit? Thanks for any help you can provide.

      Hello, i recently bought a 2000 Suzuki LTF500 semi-automatic. I was riding it and found out that its hard to shift into 3rd gear and above. could it be because of the tuning because the rpm might be to high, cuz in neutral it would sometimes rev high by itself? or could it be something in the trany?
      Also it shifts easily when off

      I am having an issue where it sounds like the gears are slipping if I hit the throttle really hard and also after letting off when the engine brake is applied. Also, the drive train that goes to the front also rides again the gear shift box. I will attach pictures and a video here shortly.
      Thanks in advance!

      Trying to change front wheel bearings. I removed the cotter pin and castle nut. Hub won't budge. Is there an additional retaining clip? Seems to be one of those push on type that barbs on the thread of the spindle. How do I remove it?
