Welcome to the forums. You need to read the trouble codes out. This link will explain it.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

You're welcome. I have some manuals, but I don't have one for the Rancher 400. You can download one from here Honda TRX400 Rancher 400 service manual repair 2004-2007 - Download Technical for $7.

so i checked out the codes and i got a 6 code. I took off the the angle sensor and cleaned it, made sure the connection was good and reinstalled it but that did not work. what should i look at next, or do i just need a new angle sensor?

Not sure what to suggest, but ranchers have angle sensor problems a lot.

I agree. I can't say for sure, but there's a good chance you just need a new angle sensor. A repair manual would tell you how to test the angle sensor.

I don't have a repair manual for the 400 Rancher, but I can post the instructions for checking the 350 Rancher angle sensor. I don't know if it would be the same or not, but here it is anyway.

white flag!

well i gave up on it and i am taking it to my local dealer. i figure ill spend a little money to have it run again rather than spend a bunch of time and frustration only to watch the sunny days go by without me riding my wheeler.
