Question about Polaris ATV

1 Answer

Anyone know about 1996 polaris sportsman 400 - none of the lights are working - headlights, tail lights, not even the neutral light or reverse lights work - have looked for for broken wires and can not find any. Is there a fuse box somewhere or a connection that I may have missed?

I also have a 96 Sportsman 400...local dealer told me if these bikes are operated with a low\bad battery the electrical system is designed such that the light bulbs will blow. I and a bad battery and non of my lights worked when I got the bike started. So, I replaced the battery and headlight bulbs and they now work. I would recommend replacing your battery if it's questionable and then your bulbs...worked for me!

SOURCE: polaris 400 sportsman, having trouble in reverse,

My trailblazer 330 has a button that has to be pressed down while going in reverse or the engine sputters, kind of a safety feture i think.

Some models have a reverse gear lock on them which will make them stop when the engine light is 'on'. If the engine used was one of these and yours didn't have the reverse gear safety on it that could be your problem. A Polaris dealer will be able to tell you from the engine number what year it is. If it is the same year and model, it could be the timing adjustment. If you validate the timing adjustment, then its the carburetor. Rebuild it.

1996 Polaris Sportsman 400 Will Not Start


If your atv has been sitting this long, the carb is probably stopped up internally... take the carb to a qualified professional and have it cleaned and set...(take a few pictures so you know where all the hoses re-attach)

ALL it takes for an engine to run is:
1. A timed spark
2. Adequate compression
3. Proper fuel/air ratio delivered

remember on early models there was a safety pin that had to be held to switch to reverse,,,your 500 does this automatically so check for safety pin hookup. Could be brush or
