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 trying to troubleshoot a starting issue. For a while, maybe a year sometimes I would hit the starter button and I'd hear a single loud click, but the starter wouldn't turn. Usually if I could pull the pull start or roll it in gear it would then start. (now I'm thinking that was coincidence) Now it only clicks. I tried to check what I could, battery is good, solenoid clicks strong, cleaned all connections (which were 80% clean anyway). I started thinking the starter wasn't spinning. I pulled it and it spins freely. The gear that it contacts in the engine-I can wiggle it maybe 1/16th to 1/8th inch back and forth. When I reinstall the starter I feel it jerk when I hit the button. I'm thinking maybe it's the starter clutch? It seems when there's a problem with them they usually just spin freely and don't engage at all. Is it possibly something is causing it to lock? I'm a bit lost now.

      I have a 98 Polaris Magnum 425. Runs GREAT for 10 minutes then starts to load up (sounds rich) and looses power. Final;ly just stalls out on idle. If it sits 20 minutes will run again.

      replaced fuel, added fuel treatment (seafoam), Replaced plug (carbon fouled), plug wires, air and fuel filter, checked all fuel and vac hoses, REPLACED carb with new. Still no good. Just ordered a coil, not sure if that will help
      Note: both the new and old carb only had the idel adjuster screw - cant find the jet adjustments or air/fuel mix screws so I cannot say how they are set.

      Looking for ideas short of spending big $$ on Polaris service

      HELP?????

      Thanks

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      I have a Kawasaki bayou 220 that won’t start I don’t know if it has something to do with the electrical wires but when I put the screwdriver on both bolts of the relay it wants to crank but can’t and there’s a missing piece I think it’s another relay that has 6 wires going into it

      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:
