Exclamation 03 Polaris 4WD Problem!

I have an 03 Polaris 400 Sportsman and it has the 4x4 on demand. When I put it in 4WD and go power only goes to 3 wheels, the back two and the front right. The front left doesn't get ANY power at all. I'd think its gotta be something electrical right? What could the problem be? Sensor? Wiring? Something inside the pumpkin?

Has anyone else had this problem before?

the hubs have a magnetic locking mechanisism that lock the hubs when the speed sensor supplies voltage to the magnets.the wires could have a short in them and the magnet may need to be replaced. Or the hillard mechanism may just be stuck. this happens if the hub fluid isnt changed regulary. if this is the case just dissasemble clean and reassemble with new fluid. you can test the magnet with a ohm meter, if there is resistance than the magnet will work if not its the magnet. the wires to the magnet are located under the front cover they are brown and grey, there are 2 sets one for the left and one for the right
