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.

      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 i have a linhai 300 of the 2004+- era. I had a cluch problem so we changed it. After changing it has a hard time to start going. When you pop it into gear and press the gas it barely drives but when it starts going about 20km/h it start driving well the acceleration is normal and everything do you have any idea of what could be the problem

      I have a 2001 Quadmaster. Bought it from the original Owner. Its in Excellent condition for a 2001. The guy said there was a carb problem when I bought it. It seems like it is not getting fuel. I took off the tank, cleaned it, replaced the gas with fresh Gas, Installed a New Gas Valve. Then rebuilt the carb with a Carb Kit. Started it up and same damn thing, seems like its starving for gas. It will also backfire out the exhaust while trying to accelerate. Now the weird part. I started it the other day and it ran great. We went for a ride and it ran as if nothing was wrong with it. Started it the next day and back to running crappy again. I was like WTF !!! ... Anyone have any ideas of what the problem could be?

      Hello 
      I have a 1994 Kawi Bayou 400 which had been running well until it sat for about a month. I left the carb dry while it was park and the temp had dropped below 0C in this time. Pulled it out last night to go for a ride and it fired up just like it should but noticed when I started to head down the road I could hold it to the bar and it didn't seem to accelerate. Lower gears weren't as noticeable but 4th and 5th it just seemed to have no acceleration and half or full throttle  made no difference. if I tried to go into 5th gear with any throttle it would stall. I turned around and just poked home very slow and it seemed to stay running but this was between 15 and 20 km/h max. 
      I have taken the carb apart and it appears to be clean and nothing stood out on inspection to have dirt or ice. Is there something I should dig more into? 
      I have checked the plug and it appears to be sooty with easily rubbed off carbon. I plan to get a new plug today and test. 
      compression with the throttle wide open is 175 psi. 
      I have opened the drain plug in the exhaust thinking there could be a mouse in the exhaust or something but no difference. 
      I do find the engine is tickity compared to my 2000 Honda but I am not sure if this is just me looking for issues or if it has always been this way. 
      If anyone has any insight I would appreciate it.
      In the last 6 months I have done new oil and filter ( mystik synthetic) 
      new Peak RPM CDI 
      I have noticed the fan comes on more often with the new CDI, could this be a program thing?

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
       
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
       
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
       
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.
