Thought I'd start a new thread of my own, just for the specific problems with the Honda ATV's which appear to be prevalant.
1. Code 6 - angle sensor. Many issues with these, replaced mine, problem is gone.
2. Code 12 - shift control motor (or circuit). I replaced the shift control motor, which after reading many forums, I understand a LOT of people do this as well and still have problems. Me too! Big surprise.
3. 4X4 is flashing 4 times, which indicates system voltage issue apparently? Has anyone had any encounters with this one?
Did I seriously pickup the biggest POS Honda in the world? After much reading online, I thought I was getting into one of the toughest and longest lasting ATV's in in the market.
I've di-greased most of the connections on the machine, and didn't see any obvious signs of corrosion.
I'm still blowing the 30amp shift control motor fuse, which leads me to believe there is some form of wiring issue, likely shorting to ground?
Does anyone have any recommendations or ideas?
When I start the machine, it goes right to the error codes, and I cannot drive it other than in limp mode. BRUTAL!!! Getting so frustrated with this thing.
Help, help, help, for the love of god ....
