    I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 05 700. i REPLACED SPEEDO, AND IT STILL DOESN'T WORK.

  • gabe clark Nov 06, 2012

    THINKING ABOUT ORDERING A WHOLE NEW WIRING HARNESS, BUT i FIGURE IT JUST HAS TO BE SOME LOOSE CONNECTION. MINE HAS POWER AT THE PLUG OF THE SPEEDO, BUT NOTHING WORKS ON IT.

The speedo itself is the problem-not the speed sensor. polaris runs power\grounds through the speedo for AWD so if its dead-so is your awd!

SOURCE: 2002 Polaris Sportsman 700: AWD Not Engaging

ok i have a 335 that had a similiar problem 4 wheel drive would not engage and speedometer acted like it was a tach when started in an idol..... i replaced the battery and believe the condition was caused by low voltage if your battery is is not very good your machine wont generate enough voltage for your 4 wheel drive to engage....try it maybe this will help...

How to tell if seloid bad?


You can check a solenoid by using an ohm meter. Or just take it to a auto shop and ask them to check it for you if you don't have one. They can check it real quick and shouldn't charge you anything.

No awd only 2wd


If I remember right it does the little black box (not the CDI box) the 330 I replaced the control box on once i replaced the box the speedo did light up again been along time ago but I think if you repalce the control box it will fix your problem

2008 polaris 800 sportsman touring wont engage in 4x4 high without holding in the override button


try this first right beside the reverse button u will see 2 sets of wires clipped into the control be careful and pull these 2 apart u will see they will be all corroded up clean them up and dielectric them see if that works its a easy fix maybe

if that doesnt work try this...

I replaced the speed sensor, got my speedo operation back, no more intermittent 4x4 issues, and no more stalling in reverse! It's actually quite annoying how many things are tied into that one sensor. Makes for a frustrating trip out of the bush if it starts acting up on the trail (like mine did). Good luck with your repairs!
