Mine was doing the same thing, turns out it was because the battery was dying. What really threw me off is that it would crank fine, but evidentally the battery didn't have enough juice to make the electronics work. Just a thought, maybe it will help!

yea you need to count the flashes, it sounds like the angle sencer went bad, there not hard to change but before you jump the gun and replace it you need to count the flashes.

i may be wrong but shouldnt it have a retrieval code? you may have to do that before you can count the flashes.

the flashing that never stops is telling you something is wrong, but is not telling you what is wrong. you have to follow the instructions that honda machanic gave you to get the number of the flashes you need to know to figure out whats wrong.

Help!! ES problems

Hello all.. I too am having weird problems with the Electric Shifting with our Foreman 450ES! Here it goes

The Gear indicator shows just "--" all the time when the engine is not running and the N and R LEDS are on. Then the inicator will change to N and R and 1 but only with it running. But when in a drive gear, the Reverse and Neutral LED's stay lit even when driving forward. We jumped the switches and found out that the shifting motor still works and we already replaced the battery and angle sensor in the very front of the motor. I found the diagnostic code table and can not get the code out since when i turn the key on and off and on again, there is no "N" for there to flash codes. Can you please give us any helpful info you may have so we can get this beast moving again! thanx alot!
