Electric Shift Problems (Honda Rancher 4x4 ES)
My father has an 2004 Honda Rancher 4wd ES 350. One morning he attempted to put it into first gear and the neutral symbol on the gear indicator just blinked. After restarting the ATV it finally shifted. Also he pushes the shift button & I hear the shifter motor work, but it won't go into or out of gear. I have been told that something on the clutch or shifter motor has to be adjusted when this happens. Is this correct?
On another note, when he was going downhill, no pressure on the throttle, just freewhelling, he pushed the shift button & nothing happened. He stopped the ATV, restarted it, & it finally shifted. I am under the impression that this is because of a censor in the computer that dosen't allow the ATV to be shifted when it is freewhelling. Also, is this correct?
I need help with this before my father has a heart attack.
I would much appreciate this if someone could tell me how to correct these problems.
