Hi guys I have 06 Honda rancher 350ES and the gear position number blinks twice and while it blinks I can't shift, but if I turn it off and back on it will work for a bit but then happen again eventually. I replace the shift motor and that did not work. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

Hi: This may help you out. Maybe just a loose connector or dirty push buttoms

Thank you for the info, I'm still trying to figure this site out. I didn't know how to reply to this post.

Ok so the shifting problem is still happening and I've ran out of ideas on what to do. If I could afford to take it to the shop I would but that's not an option at the moment. I don't know how to get the left hand switch assembly off to check for bad wires. Do you know how to do that?

back of the shift button housing is 2 or 3 phillips head screws. from there you can pull it apart, on some ES machines, you also have to remove the left hand brake lever to get them off the handlebar. you'll just have to dig in to it to see.


also, how is the condition of the battery? I would make sure it is positively charged (holding around 12.8 volts at rest)

a discharged battery causes all kinds of issues with these ES machines. from there, if that all checks out you may need to dig in to your connectors for the shift motor/angle sensor/shift buttons to make sure nothing is corroded or loose.

I'll haven't tested the batterie yet. I figured out how to get the shift assembly off and didn't see anything wrong. I blew on it to get any dust out and there wasn't much if any. I don't have a batterie tester so I'll have to see if any of my friends do. Thanks again for your knowledge!

Now that I figured it out, I cleaned my batterie terminals and so far all is good, thanks again!
Sounds like you fixed it once then the problem came back? I'd clean every connection and harness plug on the bike at this point. Ground cable to the frame too... keep us posted if ya can.
