Re: problem with 4wd -help

Check the fluid in the diff. If it is milky, the rollers may have rusted from the water in the diff. I had this happen to mine. Changing the fluid didn't do anything for mine. I opened the diff., removed the plastic cage and sanded all of the rollers. Runs good as new now. I check the front diff. after every water ride.

Re: problem with 4wd -help

Since your 4wd icon went off, I'm thinking that you didn't have enough voltage at the diff. Check the voltage or you can try turning off your lights and accessories reving the motor to get the stator to charge because the charging system seems to have a hard time keeping up.

Re: problem with 4wd -help

Mine is in the shop waiting to be serviced. My 4wd light stays on but it isn't engaged. When it is engaged it will slip and go back into 2wd. I took my RZR in once before for the same reason and was told everything was fine. I'm not taking that reason again. I know something is wrong!

If your problem turns out to be the front roll cage assembly, dont let them put the cheap plastic one back in. Go with the billet roll cage from Dragonfire. Its a high quality part that I feel wont let you down. Every time I break something, I never go back with the same part if I can help it. I broke an axle and went with gorrillas. I broke the plastic roll cage and went with the billet df. Just this weekend my buddy broke a tie rod and I was shocked to see how cheap it was; thin hollow tube steal. I'm not going to wait untill I break one Im already looking to see whats available as far as tie rods go, if any ideas somebody let me know

Re: problem with 4wd -help

check with team products for front end parts, they have much more than just clutches.

i just sleeved (cut stock in half and added 8") my stock tie rods with 1/2" schedule 40 pipe last week and since then i have raced and rolled the car. no more broken tie rods and a cheap fix. this is with my +8" suspension, lots more leverage than stock.

Re: problem with 4wd -help

i want to thank you for the ideas, the diagnostic mode indicated no current to the AWDcoil, then tested hub coil that showed no resistance at all 00.00 Ohms should be 24Ohms. its at the dealer now should be under warr.

Re: problem with 4wd -help

Mine was doin the same! I read a post about taking apart the connection below the solenoid about 2" across and 3/4 thick and cleaning the terminals then filling it up with dielectric grease!! Problem solved has been working perfect ever since!! The connector is sitting kinda upside down and all the dirt and crap was going right in so I also cut the zip tie and moved it around!! If you take it apart you will see that it's full of dirt!! Also helps if your not getting the proper Icon showing up for gear selection!!
