Hello Jeanne:
Lots of motorcycles, atv's, and other vehicles warning lights come on when you first turn the key. They are just saying hi and letting you know that they are there to do their job. When the machine is started, the warning lights should go off within a few moments. If they stay on, or come on when you are operating the vehicle, then you have some checking to do before you continue running it.
Hope this helps.

Got a 1996 polaris xplorer 4x4 .wont start,fan and oil light is on,we mix gas in the tank,oil jug empty,could this be why oil jug empty.


if it has a oil light on and the oil reservoir is empty , the it would be reasonable assumption that unless there is oil available to mix with the fuel , it will not be allowed to start
It is a 2 stroke that has a metered amount of oil that varies according to engine rpms and is not a pre-mix situation that you have assumed it to be
so fill the oil tank with the correct 2 stroke oil, remove the oil mix fuel and save it for a whipper snipper or other small engine , fill the tank with the correct fuel and it will most likely start

Brake light stays on


Leslie, Check rear brake connection, pull down on the rear spring to turn the brake light on and off..repeat until it gets worked out..you can spray some light oil/WD40 on it to help clean it out. Could also be a faulty switch, which will need replaced. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Why does engine overheating light come on after only a few minutes without fan ever turning on?


There are 2 sensors for temperature. One near T stat housing for ECU reading. Other one in water passage for the light. The ECU turns the fan on by tripping the fan relay. The light comes on to tell you it's too hot. Check fan to make sure it turns. Check fan fuse to make sure it's not blown. Unplug fan motor and hot wire it to make sure it runs. If it does, locate fan relay and swap it with one of the others with the same numbers on it to see if fan comes on when engine heats up. If fan cycles normally the temp light sensor is probably bad.

ok two reasons here. 1st being the oil temp sensor or wiring to it from fan.test sensor when eng light is on . wire to sensor must be disconnected..ohms test. to grnd on atv. open or closed. now retest when eng is cold same test as b4. open or closed? if different reading assume sensor is ok. check wiring same way. can do wires eng cold btw. should find a relay for the fan on atv also thats part 2. be a small prolly black box near battery compartment (dry location) (up high ) trace wire from fan to relay then to sensor . pretty simple there . same as b4 either open or closed when hot and different when cold is ok if different. as always CHECK FUSES FIRST. CONNECTIONS SECOND. 95 % electrical ......dirty / bad connections.

Not starting


i dont know for sure but if i had to guess and thats all im doing here the unit might be warning you that the coolant temp sensor is bad and its preventing it from starting to reduce the chance of damage to the cooling system or to the engine? i could be wrong but that would be where i started. Or perhaps the coolant temp sensor came unhooked let me know if this is any help to you or not
