Current issue: last week when riding the atv shut off for no reason turned the key off and when I turned it it cranked over and fired with no problem but the clock inside the pod was back to the default blinking 1200.
I noticed yesterday I had no reverse lights, checked the bulbs and they work, no juice back there when in reverse.
Today I went to unload from the trailer and with it in park I hit the key and it didnt crank, as if its in gear and the N saftey is stopping it. I pull started it and noticed that everything on my guage pod works EXCEPT the gear selecte identification, I have no lights at all for any gear P R N L or H. When in 4wd the light doenst come on and the 4wd doesnt work unless I press the yellow over ride button. I am assuming it is becuase the pod isnt reading that its in gear to let the axle in guage up front.
When going regardless of what gear it sin I have to hodl the over ride button to let the engine rev, it cuts it out as if its in reverse.
I have an idea that the sensor on the transmisison may be bad but I have no clue forsure. Anything else it could be?
