05 500 ho awd not working

I have a 2005 sportsman 500HO AWD
I have two issues
1) the AWD does not work, the light does not come on the indicator on the dash does not show what gear it is in ( Replaced Gear Indicator relay still nothing) changed the front diff. fluid. It will work in AWD if you use the manuel override button .

2) the top center light will not work replaced the bulb nothing, noticed I have power on both contacts

Just purchased this unit said it had a new ECU and replaced the left handlebar switch which made the dash work.
Thanks for your help.
Steve

Does your speedo work in this unit? I believe the speedo cluster is what controls the AWD. so if it isn't working then that's your problem.

About the headlight, have you hooked up a electrical tester to the light to see if its getting power? if it isn't, follow the wire down to the small waterproof pouch underneath the main headlight to the breaker switches and cut that sucker open and make sure it is still operating properly with a electrical tester. (There is a youtube video to show you how to check it)
