Hi all,

I have an 04 700 sportsman. This thing keeps locking in 4 wheel drive even when the switch is off. It unlocks if you back up a lil bit, and then go forward in low range. But when the back tires get just a lil bit of speed on them it kicks back in 4 wheel drive????? Does any body know what could cause this??? It does not have the hubs that lock at the wheel. It looks like it locks in inside the differencial??

Thanks for any help....

four wheel drive engagement

i have a 06 700 and it was doing the same thing,turned out to be the armature plate on the front differential not demagnatizing when the awd switch was turned off.they had to replace it but luckily it was still under warranty.$250 parts $100 labor

Unplug the wire coming from the front differential and see if it still does it. If so the armature plate is probably magnitized. If you are pretty handy it is not all that big a job to work on the thing. The plate is $59.00. You may just be able to demagnitize yours.
