Bringing this thread back to life. My 2000 rancher 350 es 4x4 does the exact same thing as decribed in the original post. I have put a new angle sensor, shift motor, and handlebar switch buttons on and still just a faint beep coming from the motor trying to move. The battery is fresh (12.4 volts). Checking continuity on the gear position switch checks out fine but requires an odd order of operations to get continuity. If the quad is in neutral and I unplug and switch position plug, I have continuity but if I change to first gear I don’t have continuity until I plug the connector back together and turn the ignition on then unplug the connector and then it registers continuity. Is this how the rest is supposed to work? Or should I be able to switch gears and have continuity without plugging the connector back together?
Any advice will help! The electric shifting on this thing is driving me insane!!
