2007 Arctic Cat 500 4x4 dies when turning left.

Recommended Posts

Like the title says it dies when turning left and it seems that all power quits as the headlight also go out. It belongs to my father in law he started it and it idles fine. Turn the handle bar to the left and all the power goes out. Turning right it's fine. Battery connections are fine but it was getting dark and hard to see. The year I am unsure of but maybe 2007. I will get a chance to see it in the daylight soon and check the wiring but any heads up from someone who has had this happen would be helpfull. Thanks

Sounds like there is a short in the steering column possibly.

It turned out to be the connector for the key switch. It was easy to get at so he is off to the dealer. He thinks it might be a 2005 but is still not sure.

2007 models are known to have wiring problems. I know as I have rebuilt both the front and rear wiring harness. You can save yourself some future grief if you take the plastics off and cover the harness with some spiral wrap. The first picture is when I blew out my front harness, fried 12 wires.

The wiring harness was fixed and working fine. Now this machine has picked up a clicking noise when driving front or back. It is something in the drive train. Sometimes when shifting it will not catch the gear right away. Any thoughts?

      I changed the starter and starter solenoid. Battery died so I bought a new battery.  Hooked up positive post first then I went to hook up negative wire and the atv tried to start. Key is not in the ignition and start switch is not being depressed. Anyone ever have this issue?  I was going to check solenoid with meter, but haven't had a chance yet.
