If it doesn't light up at all you may have a wiring issue. There is a trouble shooting chart in the manual for checking that. Its too large to post here

I had a speedo issue on my 2001 also, I can't remember if I had a dash light on or not ,but my speedo worked after I replaced the hall effect sensor (speedo sensor) I don't think my 4x4 worked till I fixed that either....

it may be more of a power issue to the speedo...you need to meter out the pins on the plug see if there is power...there is a link here some where to down load service manuals....

On one atv I worked on I did the speedo bypass so that the 4x4 would work. The guy didnt want to spend the money to buy another speedo. I found out how to do that by searching this forum and found it. I posted in it. I think it was last year between April and November. I printed it off but it is at home. If you cant find it send me a PM and i will let you know.

Polaris Speedo Troubleshooting

Pull the 6 prong plug and test for 12 volts between ((A) Red/White +) and ((B) Brown -) on the plug not the speedometer, when the key is on.
If you see 12 to 13 volts with your meter do the same test with a small 12 volt light. If the light works, it is probably the speedometer.

If you do not have 12 volts between ((A) Red/White +) and ((B) Brown -) on the plug when the key is on, the speedometer may be OK and
you have a wiring problem elsewhere.

The brown/white wire (wire E) on the speedometer is where the AWD system gets the ground to make it work. 12 volts on this wire would be normal with the AWD system on and the 6 prong plug removed.

this info was from another site....
