I replaced the starter and solenoid on my 1999 Honda Foreman 450 ES. Starter works fine but there is nothing going on with the shifter. Could a wire be misplaced or a fuse blown? It was working fine until I took the battery out and replaced the starter& solenoid. I took it to an auto mechanic who replaced the angle sensor and still no shift.

These need a battery in great condition. You can load test it but if it’s weak then it will start but not shift.

I took the machine to a mechanic who replaced the angle sensor with no fix. Took it to another mechanic a mile away. He called back in a half hour and told me to come get it. I had replaced the starter and solenoid and when I replaced the wires on the solenoid I had them reversed. I didn't think it made any difference but it did. It shifts all gears now!
