2007 Arctic Cat 700 efi 4x4 - Wiring Issues

Recommended Posts

hi everyone i'm new too all this. and happy i found this site.

here is the problem i'm having with my cat.

few months ago i went to start the cat and no power nothing came on.

so after reading few posts on the net . i suppiled power to ingnition and got power to it.

but no lights. ok fine. drove the bike like that during the days only.

now power still there but does not start. ok thought it with the ing switch. replaced it and still the same. fuel pump does not go on or i can not hear it.starded checking all the fuses and they are all fine.so i provide power to the fuse for the the fuel pump and can hear it come on

hit the start button and the bike starts. give the power to light fuse and same thing they come on. checked the power to main fuse and the power is there coming in and going out.

what seems to be the issue? if anyone one can help before taking her in.

Thanks.

Check the main wiring harness where it goes down from the handlebars and under the rear plastics where it goes around the frame. Check for areas where the wires may have rubbed thru.

It sounds like a broken wire from the fuse block to the front harness. 2007 models are known for wiring harness problems. I know, I have repaired both the rear and front harness already. Look at this post

http://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/arctic-cat-atv-forum/10091-extract-print-arctic-cat-atv-schematics.html

This will help if you print out the schematic on several pages so it can be seen better. I would start following with the meter to see if the ignition switch has power to it from the fuse block. The wires that snake up to the handlebars are notorious for breaks.

The first picture is the schematic printed on 6 sheets of paper and taped together. This larger print makes it so much better to see the wires and notes. The second is what I had to deal with a few months ago. I blew out about 12 wires in my front harness.

once again thank you guys for helping me.

ok so this is what i have done so far before i open up the whole bike apart.

took power from main fuse and provided it to the red wire on the ING. then took power from the light fuse and provided it to the grey wire on the ING. then took power from the red/black wire from the ING

and provided it to the fuel rely and the bike works .light come on when needed. bike runs and can turn off and run. the only thing is that the dash flickers on and off. please guys tell me if the rout i took is ok or not. or is there any other way of connecting the wires like that.

what i think is that it is the 3 ING wires that were broken somewhere.

sorry i have never worked on a bike before.

If it was my bike I would take the time and pull the plastics. If the ignition wires rubbed thru then it is only a matter of time before something else shorts out and you end up with a mess like Mike did above. If you need advice about removing the plastics let me know. I have it down to a system and it takes me less than an hour to get them all off.

Remove the rear rack - 4 Main Bolts

Remove the bolts that hold the foor rest on.

Remove the battery cover

Remove the battery (negative cable first)

Disconnect the tail light and take off the gas cap.

The plastics should come off. Check where the wiring harness leaves the fuse block and wraps around the frame.

For the front remove the cover for the radiator and the cover where the steering stem is. You should be able to see almost everything from there.

Let me know if you find any bad wires.

You have a broken wire somewhere in the front harness to the pod. Once you repair it, wrap the harness in spiral wrap like I did and it will save the harness from future problems.

Thank you guys for all the help

It was broken works behind the rear plastic

Actually corodied wires. Fix them

Everything up and working. Except for the

Fuel pump it does not come on unless

I bypass it. But then the start fine but when

I ride it it runs like crap ? I guess it's

Due to pump on none stop and makes

The bike run rich and sluggish checked

Wires and nothing else is broken

What is my next step guys?

What else can I do?

Thank you all for the help for getting me

This far

What do you mean "bypass" it? which wire are you bypassing and what are you doing? Supplying power to a lead for the pump? A quick check of the schematic I would look at #14 to see if that is reading properly (12 ohms) I would also clean the connection to the CDI box, it feeds a signal out to the pump and it may not be getting that signal. Also check #13, maybe the fuel level sensor isn't working.

      Blows out black smoke when you rev it up how do you adjust the carb?

      I'm wanting to run Shell Rotella T6 synthetic in the 700 Griz but I can only find it in either 0W-40 or 5W-40 weights, and the manual says it's ok to use everything BUT those weights...5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-40 and 20W-50.
      Would it be ok to use the Rotella 5W-40 or do I need to stick to what's specified in the manual?

      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.
