I just bought a 2005 sportsman 500 ho. When I engage the AWD nothing pops up on the display saying it's in AWD. If I push down the reverse override button then the icon pops up saying it's in AWD but as soon as I let go of the reverse override button the icon goes away again. Is that normal I can't even tell if the AWD is working or not.

Hey
I have 06 500 and same thing when I click AWD except for traction nothing changes
My understanding for reverse is
if your in AWD and put in reverse and back up nice and easy your not in AWD if you use the reverse override yellow button then your in AWD that is why it pops up and "slow" also should show on screen.
If I'm wrong then both of us are in need of a fix ..
Glenn.

I figured it out. My wheeler also wasn't showing me what gear I was in so that's why it wouldn't go into AWD. Replaced the rotary switch on the transmission and it fixed it all.
