Hopefully someone here can offer me some suggestions!
2012 Sportsman 500 HO
Issue: AWD is locked in High and Low range. Disconnects for reverse but will not engage again when pressing the override button. Once I go back into the forward gears the AWD locks again.
Also the check engine light with the "hot" warning flashes but stops when I move the machine. This warning often comes on during a cold start which does not make sense as the engine has not had time to over heat.
All these issues seems to have come to light after I removed a charged the dead battery.
Steps I have taken:
- Completed two AWD fluid changes in hopes that the oil may have been bad. The old oil was pretty dark. This is the first time I have changed it personally but the dealer has changed it several times in the past.
- Checked the battery and confirmed 12 Volts.
- Checked the rad fluid and ensured the radiator was clear of debris mud ect.
I have spoken to the service department which is out of town from where I am and they don't believe it is the roller cage as the AWD is disengaging for reverse.
I am wondering if this is something electrical? Especially with the odd check engine light coming on and turning off.
Thanks in advance.
