Were you using the winch when it failed?
Apparently winch wiring issues tend to take out the CDI......
heres just one case...

Have a 1994 Kodiak 400 and have no fire to coil and no spark what do you think that is


It is most likely gonna be the cdi inside the motor. Those are famous for going out. It's not a bad change tho. The part is about 250 dollars and you'll need a new gasket and oil. And really that's all.

02 yamaha kodiac 400 4x4. Magneto won't lock onto shaft. Keys lined up magneto in place but when I out case back on it sucks the magneto off the shaft and to the magnet. Is this supposed to happen?


Hi, David for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

1996 yamaha kodiak 400 ATV starter spins but will not engage the engine, what is the problem?


The starter Bendix gear must be stuck in the disengage position, and is not engaging the flywheel. Try hitting the starter with a rubber mallet or with a piece of wood and a hammer. You may be able to loosen the gear by spraying some WD40 or the like into the gear. You probably should take the starter off to clean /lube the gear. If all fails, you're looking at a new starter.

I have a 2003 yamaha 400 kodiak runing fine and all of a sudden everything quit no lights no brake lights winch power nothing checked all fuses wires connections everything no clue what the problem could...


I had the same problem on my 2003 Kodiak. It ended up being the CDI Box. The Warn Winch was the cause. I had to replace the CDI Box on my twice before figuring out it had to do with the winch since it happened only after using it. I used the winch before when new and never had a problem.
