eng., temp and battery lights on ski doo renegade

6 posts in this topic

I have an '05 Ski Doo Renegade with the 600 sdi. Last spring, right before putting away for the summer, I took it out for a 10 minute run on good snow across the lake. The engine, temp, and battery lights all came on. I parked it, didn't see any problems with coolant, etc. and later went through the storage procedure noticing the lights still on as soon as I would start it.

Started several times over summer, same lights came on right away and stayed on. This fall I checked the battery charge and it is completely at full charge. Connections all good. Coolant levels good and it is not overheating but the same lights still come on as soon as I start it and they stay on. Any ideas?

Does it say SCALE on the digital read out? If so double check that your tach reset button is out all the way or try pulling it out a little.

It does say SCALE.

The tach button, if I'm seeing the right thing, is just a flush rubber button. Not sure how I can pull it out. Any suggestions?

Will also check Doo talk.

Thanks,

Try pushing the button in or tapping it to see if it is popping out all the way. Sounds like it is in a scale mode used to set the speedometer needle location to zero on the face of the dial.

Found this explanation on the actual issue:

Quote:
What has happened is the pin under the reset button (under the rubber cap on your speedo) is stuck. Just take the tip of something small but not sharp and push down a few times on the rubber cap to free up the pin underneath. Don't use something sharp since it will cut the rubber cap.

Sometimes you can just use your finger to jiggle and press the rubber cap a little and it may free up.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
