Too many lights


Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 Kodiak Ultramatic. I parked in the garage in late fall and a now trying to get it started. Fresh gas, recharged the battery. The Reverse light is on no matter what gear I have it in. It comes on as soon as I turn on the key. When in Park, both the 'P' and 'R' lights are on; when in Neutral, then 'N' and 'R' lights are on. I am assuming there is a 'deadman switch' somewhere that keeps me from turning it over. In Neutral, I can roll the machine back and forth-no change in the lights.

I am suspecting a short, but this is the first ATV I've owned and I don't have a lot of experience with them. Is there some other possible problem? Like I said earlier, it was working fine when I parked it and it has not moved since. It has been parked in an enclosed garage-my car sits outside, of course.

i think you are on the right track with the wiring ... check the wires running by gas tank and under seat along the frame, and at the handlebar neck. watch the wiring as you turn the handlebars for maybe stretching and/or rubbing ... most times you can see the rub/wear marks on the harness, but you might have to cut it back to look at the individual wires to find a bad one
