  1. I tore the front strut housing down and the coil that makes the electro magnets were frayed. That was the root of the problem. The new magnets were suprisingly cheap. 27 bucks each. I am going to try to take out the neutral switch and fix it or replace so I don't have to hot wire it. If the swith works properly it should send power to the hubs. thanks and I will let you know how it comes out. Mike
  2. I went by and got a wiring diagram from the local dealer and figured out a few things. 1. My neutral switch is bad which is the root of my problem. Because of this voltage is never sent to the four wheel drive on demand switch. 2. I took the "hot" wire off the 12v auxillery socket and hot wired the swith and still nothing. 3. I tested the wires going down to the front struts and appairently have a problem in the hub somewhere so I am going to tear into this later. I guess I am going to be quad crazy 1994 sportsman 4 x 4 experty by the time I am done. I plan to write a full post over all the checks and procedures when I am finishe. If it all works... Ha Ha.
  3. I am getting approx. 3 volts out of what I would call the distribution panel to the switch and that is as far a s I got. How do I determine how many volts should be going to the front hubs? 3 volts seems reasonable because the wires going down to the hubs are tiny. I would say maybe 20 or 22 gauge. Thanks, Mike
  4. I have a 1994 sportsman 400. I got it stuck this weekend and found out the 4 x 4 is not engaing. Thru further investigation I found out the basic way the front hubs lock is by magnetizing the hubs and locking them. I am not getting power to the hubs, but it seems that I should be able to tap into any electrical source and run it thru the 4 x 4 push button switch and it should work. What is you guys opinion. I am a good mechanic, but this is the first atv I have owned. Thanks, Mike
