Electronic Shift Problems

I have a 2004 Rancher 4x4 TRX350ES. after riding for a while the shift indicator will begin to blink and not shift anymore. teh bike must be manually shifted to nuetral and then started again. this will sometimes fix the problem and sometimes it will not. i had originally had thought this was because a weak battery. i purchased a new battery and the problem was corrected for about two different atv trips. but teh problem has returned. please help.
thanks

Welcome to the forums. I would check the battery to make sure it is still fully charged to make sure something isn't draining it.

You need to retrieve the trouble codes. Here is the procedure and the codes.

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.

The procedures above are for the 350 Rancher. Here is the procedures and codes for the 500 Foreman ES.

Does the gear position indicator blink when you turn the key on? If so, follow the procedures in post #2 above to retrieve the stored trouble codes.
