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.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
