Sounds like the switch or a relay since the front is not engaging.

Polaris scrambler 400 won't shift out of 4x4. Any ideas why ?


On a website where another guy had this problem, the previous owner told the new owner that he shifted it into 4x4 while in the mud and it is now stuck in AWD. According to Blueline15: "previous owner did a very bad thing. for anyone who doesnt know, remember this example. although you can flip the 4x4 switch while moving, if your back tires are spinning while in 2wd, you can not go into 4x4 or you will cause this problem. just remember this, the flip on the 4x4 the front wheels need to match the rear in wheel speed. so either be moving and not stuck, or come to a complete stop.

what happened is you have rollers in a plastic cage in the front end. when he hit the 4x4 button with the rears spinning, the torque going to the front gearbox while everything was at a stand still that it broke the roller cage.
You're looking at a few hundred dollars at a dealer, depending on how bad."

I hope this helps.

I have a honda TRX 350 2000 model quad and the 4wd is not working, any ideas?


Your 4 wheel drive may be working, but it is a torque-sensing front
differential for reduced steering effort, that supposedly sends power to the wheel with the most traction. Many owners have found that just the opposite is true. Your problem may mean that the differential is working, but because it doesn't lock up both tires in the front and only one tire is getting all the traction you can't see it work as advertised. The link to the video is great for showing what may be happening. The front differential may be worn out and need to be fixed or it may just be that it is not working as you expected:

How do I fix my front wheel drive system on my 2004 ATV 400 Sportsman Late model? After extensive work and parts replacement my all wheel drive is not working.


Just a suggestion but you should consider soldering all your electrical connections to insure they are weather and vibration proof. Additionally, I added a small 3 amp circuit breaker, but a 1.5 to 2 Amp automotive fuse and fuse holder will do nicely.

Process:

1- Disassemble the 'Instrument/Light' cluster cover.

2- Remove the 'Radiator access' panel.

>>>Perform This Test BEFORE Proceeding and make SURE all power is OFF!<<<

3-On the drivers LEFT side of the radiator access area, locate two (2) connectors, each with SOLID GREY wires and BROWN wires with a WHITE Stripe on top and smaller diameter Solid Grey and Brown wires with a White stripe leading down.
--a) Disconnect both connectors by pulling the top and bottom sections away from each other. (DO NOT pull the WIRES, use the connector body to pull).
--b) Test EACH of the two (2) connectors with the SMALL DIAMETER wires leading down. (see Hub Coil Connectors pix)
--c) Using an OHM meter, measure the resistance across the two pins (one connector at a time) for each connector. Depending on the accuracy and sensitivity of the meter, each connector should read between 25 and 28 OHMS. NOTE: If EITHER of the two (2) Hub Coils reads ZERO (0) or less than 25 or Greater than 28 OHMS STOP!!! The Hub Coil itself OR the wires OR the connectors may be defective or in need of repair!
--d) Using an OHM meter, on EACH of the two connectors, measure the resistance between one pin of each connector and GROUND (any bare metal point on the ATV frame). NOTE: If EITHER of the two (2) connectors resistance to GROUND reads anything GREATER/ABOVE than ZERO ( 0 ) OHMS STOP!!! The Hub Coil itself OR the wires OR the connectors may be defective or in need of repair!

>>>If the test in 'c)' or 'd)' FAIL STOP, DO NOT proceed!! The Hub Coil itself OR the wires OR the connectors may be defective and MUST be repaired before ANYTHING else is done!<<<

4-(For my model) On the right handlebar, check the lamp in the AWD switch to make sure it is not burned out or missing. Replace lamp if necessary. (Not essential to the AWD operation, just nice to have to confirm voltage is being applied to the front wheel Hub Coils)

5-In the 'Radiator Access' area, locate the Red/White stripe wires providing (switched) full time + (battery plus) voltage (accessory power) via a ¼" female connector. "Accessory Leads" - in the wiring diagram.

6-Using a volt meter (or continuity light), CONFIRM that the terminal is OFF (NO voltage) when the ignition switch and the 'Engine STOP/START switch (on the left handlebar) are both OFF, and has + (positive) battery voltage, when the ignition switch and 'Engine STOP/START switch are both ON, with the engine NOT running.

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.

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.
