i have a 420 rancher. When i put it in D it will not go. after in sits for a few seconds it will start moving and when it gets up to speed to change gears, you can hear it change to the next gear but will not go again. I checked all fluids and all are fine. Does anyone have any suggestions?

It would help tremendously if you could take a video of what it's doing. If you have a youtube account, post a video to your youtube account then paste the video link in a response.

I have a 2016 Honda Rancher 4x4 DCT EPS. When I put mine in "D" for drive, it always goes. I haven't had any problems with it yet, in 2700 miles.

@waltheco,

Is your Rancher a DCT model or no...? Did this happen all of a sudden, or is there a story behind it?

Mine has been doing this for 3 years.

Today I finally brought it to the garage, they checked the shifting motor, change the angle sensor that was fill with water (my quad has never been in the rain nor in a pool, simple washing with a regular hose with limited pressure) They checked everything. Mechanic went for a test ride, still the same problem but less intermittent.

I left the d... thing there and bought a new one with foot shifter. I only had 540 mile on it.

They do no seem to know what cause the problem and told me it is very rare. I read a lot of those problems on the web.

Hope you find your problem. By the way, have you checked the front big connector under the hood between the 2 shocks, and the big gray one under the seat right side for moisture?

Good luck to U.
