We bought my daughter a 350 rancher ES. It has had continious problems with shifting. Yesterday I took the manual and tested and it showed that the angle sensor was bad. I had replaced it 2 weeks ago. After pulling it off I found some moisture on the internal side of the sensor. I dried it off, made sure the o-ring was installed and reattched it. It has shifted fine for about 20 miles ,more than before. She had washed it a few days ago. What I would like to be sure of is, will moisture affect the angle sensor,and should I put some sealant around the shift motor and angle sensor. I am new here but have learned a lot from reading others post. I apppreciate any help.
thanks

You can try it. My nephews is always messing up when it rains because of condensation we think. The sensor is just the worst design Honda has ever made and there is not alot you can do with it. And welcome to the forums!

you can buy an aftermarket shift module or put a hand or foot shifter on it , both are bolt on units and the shift module bypasses all the junky factory parts go to docsatvservice.com for your real answers
