2005 Arctic Cat 500 Not Firing

Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 Arctic cat 500. I got into a little water and the motor died. Fouled the plug.Was gonna try and flush the engine by changing the oil multiple times. After changing the first time and installing new plug the engine still will not fire. ANY IDEAS??

Your coil is probably still wet, how deep was the water?

First thing you need to do is figure out what is missing, fuel or spark. Your problem is most likely electrical if it was triggered by something getting wet. If you don't have spark, use a multimeter and start following the power supply to the ignition system and find the opening in the curcuit.

      Last time I installed a remote start system it was on an old Dynasty whose wiring was too delicate to work on really. A couple weeks after installation it started ok but a ton of white smoke came from under the dash. I uninstalled the entire system and everything was fine after that.

      So in picking out a starter for this '02 Taurus I want something simple that will work with this car well. The start systems I'm seeing are generally designed to do door locking and unlocking, trunk release, etc. As this car already has those functions on a fob I won't be using any function on any future remote start system other than the remote start.

      Can anyone with knowledge of my car recommend a decent but low cost / low extra functions start system that would work well with my Taurus?

      Thanks

      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?
