Cool Honda Ignition Problems....

Okay I have a 08 Honda Foreman 500 ES 4x4 w/ Power-steering...and I have it snorkeled out with a Triangle ATV Snorkit. When I installed the snorkel I put die electric grease in every connection I could find and sprayed the outsides with spray silicon. But after I returned from Mud Nats it started having a issue when ever you turn the key on the display doesn't come on you have to turn it off and on a few times then it will finally come on. I'm thinking water in a connection somewhere or there's a solenoid under the seat and I was wondering if that had anything to do with it. THANKS FOR YALLS HELP!!!!!

Ive never heard of that problem before and it makes me think your probably right on the water in a plug issue. I would search for error codes because sometimes they dont all flash on the dash. Ive heard of some problems with the displays on the older units but not as new as 07.

Alright well I'm at school during the week and I will be headed home this weekend and I'm going to check it out. Hopefully I can find the wet connection. It's about to for me to pull all the plastic off again and just re-grease everything like I did the first time when I installed the snorkel. Thanks for the info guys!!!

If anybody has anything else to had please feel free to, I'm open to ideas....
