If your speedometer is broken then your AWD will not work. You can do 2 things

1. Replace the Speedometer
2. Remove the 6 pin plug from your speedometer
On the plug, short the brown/Brown White wires together and
tape it up good.
Do not reconnect the plug.
You will lose the function of the speedometer but your AWD will work.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Polaris Ranger 6 x 6 what engages the front wheels transmission or front gear box

I'm in the UK and not familiar with your particular vehicle..
However, the front gearbox as you call it is probably a transfer unit/case. This transfer case takes power from your auto transmission and transfers it to the front wheels.

You can remove the front propshaft (drive shaft) from the transfer case/front differential and make your vehicle 2 wheel drive. This, supposedly, gives you better mpg.

How to test my 4 wheel drive electricals


On my 4 wheeler if I raise the front wheels off the ground and with the 4 wheel drive engaged you should not be able to turn the front tires two revolutions. You need to be more specific as to what you are trying to do because there are other electrical things that can be checked. Like if the 4 wheel drive will not engage. Previous test is only to see if the front end is engaged in 4 wheel drive.

06 polaris 700 my 4wheel drive will not ingage. I have a brand new front diff on it.


The front end works off 12volts.If you have moisture in your dash your dash may not let your 4 wheel drive work and it could also not let your atv start if it doesn;t every start unplug your dash but your dash has to work to have 4 wheel drive.

Turf mode not working


turf mode is where only one wheel is powering the sportsman.
sounds like the left wheel is the one that would drive it.
i can not figure out if it is the rear left wheel but it may be. i would see if there is a problem with that.

4 wheel drive locks in one side one side will not some times makes a sound to if 2 sides are in


Model? If you put it in regular 4WD it will usually only spin one tire. If you have diff lock and use it, it locks both front wheels but can be hard on front end parts. The front end will do some clanking and popping because it doesn\'t really like diff lock.
