2010 Honda TRX420FA - Transmission? Start Problem

Recommended Posts

(My first post here)

My wife has a 2010 TRX420 and last night it left her stranded !!*&$$#@!! I went out in the rain to retrieve it and could not get it to start (turn over). When the key is turned on I get the - symbol with no blinking. The PS light stays lit I can also hear the fuel pump kick in. I played with the emergency shifter and could never get it into gear or change its symptoms (start). After doing my internet research I see the - may also be connected to other issues. I have it back in the garage and charged the battery (you never know) to know avail. Before it goes to a dealer I want to try and see if someone out there has seen this issue and can get me pointed in the right direction and check some things out. I do have a service manual but could not find a matching trouble shooting description.

Thanks!

Oxidized,

Thanks for the reply. It was none of those. I left my battery tender on overnight and today and bingo! I believe it has a bad battery. I was suspect of the battery when the battery tender light went to green or float so quickly but just told myself well heck it isn't the battery! It had headlights when the problem happened but maybe not that bright. Any of my older quads that aren’t so electronically dependent can survive on an iffy battery for some time. So if you have one of these electromechanical 4 wheelers and it gets weird CHECK YOUR BATTERY!

Thanks!

      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

      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.
