I hope you got this problem fixed, just happened to my predator, it was indeed the voltage regulator. I picked up a service manual that includes part numbers and installation procedures from for 15 bucks.

SOURCE: polaris quad screen shows a wrench and say service

It will come on when ignition is on because it is diagnosing the system. Should go OFF when unit is started or moved.

Just a guess but check out the air gap on your pulse coil should be around 0.016 to 0.030 inch like I said just a guess, but hope it helps

My 2007 POLARIS PREDATOR 500 won't start

Hey Stephen,
It take three (3) things to make an internal combustion engine run,(assuming all internals are good)

1. A properly timed spark
2. Adequate compression >120psi
3. Proper air/fuel ratio

eliminate each one of these, one at a time... then you have the reason it won't run. That is how a professional diagnoses a problem

Why is my 2004 polaris predator 500 shutting of while riding it

First be sure to check oil level if you haven't. Many have a low level shut off switch. If the level of oil gets below a certain point it can shut off. Just a thought.

What kind of oil can a use for a 2005 polaris predator

Semi-synthetic 0w40 oil for the 500,600,700 sportsman quads, check what clutch your ATV has, "cvt" (continuosly variable transmission) clutches, or 'wet clutch'. 10w-40 or the 0w-40 that has the additves for "wet clutch" aplications

04 polaris predator was running fine yesterday now wont start for nothing.........has spark fuel **** on engine run swithch on battery fully charged, lights work bright turns over but will not start, even...

Sounds like one of the wires on the loom might have come undone, just run through the loom, especially all the wires to the ignition.If that fails, looking at the model, could potentially be a CDI failure. Good luck
