4 Wheel Drive Problems
I am seeking help on a 4 wheel drive issue from those guys that know about these things, so if you can help please share. About a month ago I bought a 2007 Polaris Sportsman 800, since then I have had it in for a full service at a certified Polaris dealer. Along with the service several ball joints, bearings and miscellaneous repairs were made. Yet one major issue remains, the 4 wheel drive will not engage. The speedometer works the LCD display shows the 4 wheel drive icon but when in the mud only the rear spins. I can add that the gas gauge does, at times flash displaying random fuel levels.
There are numerous things that can cause issues with the 4wd on these machines. Speedo not working, voltage at the diff, too little fluid in diff, too much fluid in diff, dirty fluid, wrong fluid, warped armature plate, or broken sprague cage. In that order. Start by checking the speedo, if that works then move down to the diff. to see if you have voltage. If you have voltage, then drain the fluid and ensure you put the proper amount of the Polaris Demand Drive fluid. If that doesn't work then take it apart and look at the sprague cage. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Also check the armature plate while your in there. It only takes it being warped .005" for it to cause engagement issues.

I have a feeling that it is an electrical issue. Originally, the winch wouldn't work when the cooling fan was on and then the issue with the fuel gauge popped up and now I don't have 4 wheel drive, if there are major electrical issues what should I look at in that area? Thanks for your help.
