Well this pile just cannot seem to STOP giving me the finger!
Finally get enough snow to actually use the new V-Plow we bought last year and no 4wd. Flipped switch, nothing up front. Pulled the switch and it was not reading the correct resistance across the pins so my wife made some calls, found a replacement switch, and took a ride to make sure I had the switch when I made it home from work.
Installed the new switch, turned the key, pushed 4wd, dash displays 4wd, no noise from up front, @#$%@#$%@# Soo beyond pissed with this pile right now. Soo much crap needs to be removed to get to the front diff since the plow mount blocks the front from flipping forward.
Fresh engine rebuild
New rear u-joints
New 4wd switch
New King shocks (because the "Heavy duty" Prowler still comes with cheap shocks up front that cannot even handle the Pressure of the springs being turned up)
Positive side, only the front diff, rear diff, 4wd actuator, and brakes left to replace on this thing. LOL
Oh and all the fuses by the Battery box were good.
Soo frustrated right now but definitely have learned I will NEVER buy another used UTV or ATV again! Not a lot of owners take care of their rides anywhere near as well as the rest of you do. Worst part is the Prowler has spent more time parked in the garage safe since we brought it home than any of our vehicles in the last 5 years! LOL Never even made it out for more than the weekly run to the town recycling/dump 1mi away round trip. LOL
Thanks for letting me vent!
Update: Was a bad 4wd Actuator due to failed front seal allowing water into the system.
