How to winterize a 600 e-tec 2012 ski doo expedition

your manual under the seat should explain how...

Manual says press high/low beam switch rapidly but what they don't say is, which is very important, don't press it so much that it clicks.
As in don't let the hi/lo beam switch click like it normally does when switching from hi to low?

I just fogged both of my etecs for the first time half an hour ago. I clicked the hi/low beam switch all the way rapidly and the "PUSH S" message never showed up. So I went back and switched it VERY RAPIDLY while holding the "S" button and it worked. As soon as "PUSH S" showed up on the display, I pushed the "S" button down until the "OIL" message popped up and it fogged and shut downicon1.png on que.

I friend of mine said he could never get his etec to self-fog. I think he wasn't pushing the hi/lo beam switch fasticon1.png enough for it to engage.

Hope this infoicon1.png helps.

Jimmy 99 put the lo gear and try to put in back in 2 hi. and still remain in 4 lo ?

My lifted 97 Expedition does that every once in a while. Try putting the vehicle in neutral, or changing from low to high on loose soil or gravel, and switch from forward to reverse a few times. 4 low is only meant for extreme conditions, so you shouldn't be using it too often.

I have a sa200-f163 lincoln Problem with the Web Site I have a sa200-f163 lincoln welder that only sparks faintly when trying to weld. I have attempted flashing the exicter with no results.How does one...

You can expect to see readings near zero ohms. The windings in a SA200 are pretty darn heavy, to the point that all you can expect to see from an ordinary VOM is either continuity or short circuit.

Is it kicking up from idle when you try to establish an arc? That's the biggest problem with this machine, the darn idle mechanism fails and it's about impossible to find parts.

If it's kicking up like it should then clipping the ground to the Neg post on a 12v battery and tapping the end of your rod (that's inserted in the holder) on the other post should polarize the generator. Hooking it to another welder for a few seconds should do it too.

Have you serviced the brushes? If not, let me know through the 'comment' button and we'll service them.

How to adjust carbs i screwed the throttle screw in all the way and lost track how many turns it was now it will not start

you should have 3 adjustment screws. the one marked T is throttle idle position,adjusts idle speed.Lo adjusts air-fuel mixture at low rpm,HI at high rpm.H & L should be 3/4 to 1 1/2 turns out from a lightly seated position.adjust for best rpm's at Lo,then Hi.turning idle screw in too far would not affect starting,only idle speed.

2001 Dodge Durango stuck in 4 wheel-Low. Won't switch back to 2WD

Just to clarify, the "transmission" is not stuck in 4-Lo. It is the "transfer case" that is attached to the transmission that actually engages the 4-Hi and 4-Lo modes. To properly shift your vehicle into 4-Lo, you know that you have to shift the transmission into neutral and slow down to less than 5 mph. Once your vehicle slows down to this range, your can switch your transfer case into 4-Lo mode. Due to the inner workings of the transfer case, the actual shift into 4-Lo may take a few seconds to complete. This is normal and does not signify that there is an issue. All transfer cases that have 4-Lo mode will act this way regardless of the make or model. To make a long story short, to shift out of 4-Lo you must follow the same steps that you took to shift into 4-Lo, just in reverse order. Switch the transfer case to 4-Lo mode if it isn't already there. Slow down to less than 5 mph (your vehicle must be moving, though). Then, shift your car into 4-Hi or 2WD. Give your vehicle several seconds to complete the shift. The transfer case indicator light will flash until it is complete. When it does complete the shift into the new gear mode, you will most likely hear a "clunk" (the range sleeve inside the transfer case disengages from its mating spline) from under your car. Again, any transfer case with 4-Lo (regardless of make or model) will exhibit this same noise. This should help you get out of 4-Lo. It is good practice to shift your car into and out of 4-Lo at least a few times each year to keep all of the splines free of corrosion and build-up. Based on the age of your vehicle, your transfer case may also need a complete flush and some new transmission fluid. Hope this helps.
