I bought a 2003 Rancher ES 4x4 for 640 bucks it needed a battery and few odd and end items. Got battery on it ran fine for few days well I lifted it up to check the front and rear diffs and the electric shift quit working while on if it's on and not crank it will shift fine. If it is running in first one or two seconds it'll let you shift but then quits shifting. It's really just a project I'm trying to decide whether to keep and use as base of budget build. Motor sounds strong no smoke. Cranks right up.

Welcome to the forum.

If it were me I'd convert it to a footshift and run it. I don't like ES machines.

If you want to keep it as an ES, check the connections going to the shift motor, pull the shift motor off and clean the gears underneath, and see if that helps.
