Polaris shutting off when put in reverse

7 posts in this topic

My dad called me the other day about a problem he has been having with his '99 Magnum 325. Apparently when he puts the quad in reverse, the motor kills and will not start. Any ideas on what may be causing this problem?

Try holding the reverse override button when it acts up. If it works good with the button held in, it is probably the wheel speed sensor. Not as likely but it is also possible that the speedometer is bad.

Norm,

You were correct with problem being the wheel speed sensor. Thank you for the idea.

My 2002 6X6 shuts off sometimes when turning in reverse? I thought the gas cap was just hitting the key somehow, but I don't think so?

Outfitter, there a good chance thats exactly what's happening, I've seen it happen before especially if you happen to have a key chain on it. It will on occasion hit the gas cap and turn the key.

This happened to me when I had my '00 SP500. I had a key ring and other keys on it. I was going across a plowed field scouting deer hutning areas and hit the keys on top of the gas tank, turning the key off. It concerned me to begin with, but then it happened...............The machine backfired so loud I swear it chased every deer out of the county.

I don't have a key ring with a bunch of keys, just the spare is on the ring. I do think that somehow it does bump the tank and shut it of, I have not seen it though. I am always looking backwards when it happens.

    • In short, "the main reason politicians are deathly afraid of economic downturns:,,,
    • Well, the dismount is the part that everyone remembers, and will make or break the entire routine. 
    • The overwhelming majority of that money that they are making is speculative and has no tangible value such as banking, insurance,real estate etc and that value can vaporize very quickly. When the debt reaches the breaking point there are going to be a lot of urbanites figuring out that corn and potatoes don't grow on asphalt or concrete. We will see then where the value is.  
    • Well, he's right,you know? Oh yeah, those two women just made the list. 
    • There was not much mentioned about the debt this cycle because both side's economic policy plans called for no change in course. So am curious......now that Palin and Coulter are saying the same thing "we" are about Trump.....does that mean they are mad and crying liberal tears as well? Not so ironically, it sure is looking like Billghazi and D2E are the actual libtards in the room.  
    • Should be cold enough the next few days to do that.
    • I like to let hang for two weeks if the weather is cold.
    • This morning, while in the garage feeding my dog, I saw a mouse running along the wall and behind the tool bench. Thirty seconds later, "SNAP!" There it was. A dark mouse in it's prime pelt giving the last few kicks in the trap before expiring.   Do you guys like your mouse meat fresh or do you allow it to hang a few days like you would a deer?
    • So in Minnesota's case then, wouldn't it make more sense for the metro area to return control of the resources and ownership of public lands in the northern part of the state to the northern counties so they wouldn't be such a burden on the metro area?   Or is it really more about the power than the money?
    • That's because you still have many that are still fighting the 2016 election cycle and/or are upset because their gal lost the election and can't seem to be able to recover from that fact.  It's over. Trump will now be the president. So going forward, he is now going to have to earn my vote come 2020. And it will be based 100% on what I see and my own evaluation of his performance in the next 4 years. Not what the NYT's says about him or his critics. For now, it's all I can do   She's 100% right. Especially her comment regarding the debt. Little was mentioned regarding our debt this election cycle. Her quote; “When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent,” she asserted.   Can't be stated enough. This is but one small example of how government can end up creating market distortions
