Tilt Sensor

I have an Arctic Cat Prowler 550 with only 450 miles on it. It dies and won't start. It has good, strong spark. 42 fp fuel rail pressure. There are no codes on the meter; however, it won't run to tell me the codes. I suspect the tilt sensor and if so, where is it located. I have a manual but it doesn't say where it is. Is there a good reputable after market parts dealer in the country?

Welcome Mike, best site going! I have a 2009 700 XTX, the tilt sensor on mine is located under the passenger seat area. Have to remove the seats and doghouse to get to it. Mine is attached to the seat frame rail. Do you have a owners manual, parts manual, or a service manual? For the most part, I try to stick with factory parts. Country Cat, Babbitts, and several others offer decent pricing (don't laugh!). The Prowler is starting to be the redheaded stepson for aftermarket support. Let us know more about your machine, your location, and so on. Great to have you as a member!

Welcome to the forum Mike!
It seems someone else had a similar problem that turned out to be a bad starter pulling too much juice and not letting it start. I'm sure there's somebody here that can help you.

Hey RD watch that redhead stuff I used to be one it's all gray now!

How long since spark plug replaced? Some of us have had success just putting in a new plug when starting becomes problematic.
