Stuck in 2nd gear

Hey guys I got a problem that Ive been stumped on . The other day I went for a ride on my 2007 honda rancher 420 fe. It was doing great till I stopped and put it in reverse and backed up. I put it in 1st gear and went forward and when I shifted to 2nd gear the four wheeler would not move . I was unable to shift up or down unsure whats going on I think it might be the shift angle sensor. The gear position indicator gave me 2 long blinks and 2 short blinks
Any ideas would help the battery is fully charged the fourwheeler has 1200 miles on it. Thanks in advance ride safe.

I'd guess it's a shift position sensor,or maybe the angle sensor...Did you go download the free downloadable manual for your machine in the Schematics/Manuals section???...

Code 22 is shift angle sensor response. Could be a bad angle sensor or a bad shift motor. More than likely, a bad angle sensor.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

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 can usually find them for around $60. I would test the angle sensor before buying one. If you don't have a manual, you can download one from the manuals/schematics section of the forum and it will show you how to test the angle sensor.

No idea personally,but I bet it falls under the too much price range...

Hey guys thanks for the advise the problem was the shift angle sensor I checked the net the cheapest I found was at Discount OEM Polaris Parts, Polaris ATV Parts, Yamaha ATV Parts. 1-866-601-3827 for $42.00 it was part# 38800-hpo-a11. They said this fits all the ranchers. Besafe

Just curious the gear position indicator stopped blinking . I havent erased the trouble code yet .But when I shift to 2nd gear I almost have to come to a slow speed but when I start moving again it shifts normal into 3,4,5 gear. Would the stored trouble code have a hand with this. I havent got the scs connector yet to erase the code 22 yet. Any thoughts would help
