Hello,

You can get a service manual for your Rancher HERE.

I recommend that you pull apart every harness plug and make sure each are clean and dry before you go any further. If any are wet spray them out with some electrical contact cleaner or better yet, buy a can of CorrosionX. Then snap them back together with some dielectric grease in the plugs to make them watertight.

Most electrical problems on ATVs stem from them getting wet... despite what you may expect, they are NOT ready for water and mud when they leave the dealer.

If your DTC code still remains after performing these routine services, use the service manual troubleshooting steps (in the back of the manual there is an entire section dedicated to DTC fault diagnosis) to troubleshoot and isolate the fault. As I mentioned, there may be nothing wrong with it except for a dirty/poor wiring harness connection.

Enjoy your work!

You should still perform routine maintenance on all of your connector plugs. Just because its kept indoors and never been wet doesn't mean you can ignore it. There may be nothing wrong with your bike... follow me?

Are all of the other maintenance items listed in your manual up to date? If not, catch them up...

Yes simple fix. Take the seat off to gain a bit more slack on the wiring for the 02 sensor. Open end wrench just above the left rear tire for sensor. Pull the rad fill cover off to access the computer connection. Follow the instructions in the manual to clear code.

The 02 sensor and heater are one small unit, measuring the exhaust fumes. It will richen and or lean the gas mixture the engine needs depending on multiple conditions. The 02 sensor was a known problem for are bikes

The tool is a jumper wire with the special plug to fit the existing wiring on the bike. I removed the locking tab on the new tool with a pair of snips. you must insert it and remove it and reinstall in the right order within 5 sec as per the manual. It plugs into the same harness as the factory winch wire / 12volt cigarette wire if you have them. if not there is a cap on the bikes wires next to the radiator cap.

You can by from the dealer or amazon, these parts are nothing special. My bike is the 2016, but I used the manual for the 14, same bike different color.
