99 TRX 450 ES Shift Issue
I was out Monday for the first time with the Forman I have --- Ran flawlessly all day .... except the ES failed. It shifted for a few laps, then failed, and I reset the ECU with the ignition key, used the emergency shifter to place back in "N", and all was well..... it failed later going up a hill and ES was 100% failed for the remainder of the day (does nothing --- 2, 3, 4 shows "-" on the display when shifted with the manual shifter).
I have the Honda tech manual, the ES Shift problem stickey from this forum and some time today...... so I plan to rip into it. The battery is new, I checked all the fuses ... BTW the wiring diagram calls for a 15A fuse going to the shift motor, but the white fuse box in the battery tray calls for 30A .... not sure what's up there.
I am sure the gear positon sensor is good (Getting the display to show "R, N, 1, 5"--- so I am guessing its a connection, Angle sensor, Speed Sensor, Bad reading from the Ignition RPM circuit, or ECU has died.
Also, I found oil in the engine on the flywheel as I was checking the timing marks when I adjusted the valves --- this did not seem normal to me .... and I was wondering if this could get on ignition components such as the ignition pulse unit and all be causing my "Sneezing" idle issue and possibly sending a bogus RPM signal to the ECU which may affect ES shifts ?
