Wats up! bran new to honda atv. I bought a 2004 rancher a month ago. i love it but to day while riding it wouldnt shift while climbing a hill, i had it in auto. i get home and reverse woundnt work, but forward did. now it wont go anywhere and flashes ESP in the gear position screen. Now im sad. any help would be great!

thanx alot helmut. ill give it try/ when i get off of work tomarow. i also gotta get a manual for it so i can figure things out and find out whats what on this machine.
SHWEET! Iv already learned more on this site in an hour than i did talking to people that ride all the time around my town.
so i checked out the codes and i got a 6 code. I took off the the angle sensor and cleaned it, made sure the connection was good and reinstalled it but that did not work. what should i look at next, or do i just need a new angle sensor?
white flag!

well i gave up on it and i am taking it to my local dealer. i figure ill spend a little money to have it run again rather than spend a bunch of time and frustration only to watch the sunny days go by without me riding my wheeler.

I asked the dealer if i could bring my rancher in and asked the price of them fixing it for me,they wouldn't give meastraight answer,so i ordered an angle sensor and installed it i can go ride :icon_ rocker:the part cost $86 and the repair manual cost $7.
