Another newbie

Hey guys

Boss just offered me his 06 650 H1 with upgrades for $6000 (canadian) it only has 1200km on it. Seemed like a good deal to me so I snagged it!

The 4wd won't engage even though it says it's on via dash. So I'm here to start scouting out he ins and outs of these UTVs. Not going to lie I'm reading about lots of problems... hope mine is good!

the smaller cc ones like yours don't have a whole lot of problems...maybe your solenoid is bad...

The 650 is solid. They made some changes from 06 but this a great machine. I have a 2006 myself and love it. Do a search for front diff and 4x4 you may find what your looking for. If I recall correctly this problem has been talked about and it's not a major headach.

Welcome to the family and glad you could join us

Welcome Geoff. Can you hear the actuator When you flip the 4x4 switch?

Wow I can tell this board is fairly active by all the replies to the "new guy". Awesome!

I'm glad to hear the 650s are pretty good, I wasn't in the market for an Arctic cat, in fact I've never owned artic cat anything!

There is no sounds at all, engine on or off. The dash shows 4wd lock at all times, hitting the switch seems to do nothing at all.

We have so much snow here I can't even take it for a ride in 2wd since i'd be getting stuck..

when you hit the 4wd switch you should audibly hear the solenoid engage the front diff....check your wiring. Split

I would just turn the key on to hear the actuator. I would check fuses first and then start eliminating other things by making sure you have 12 volts at the switch before and after. Then if that is good I would check for 12 volts and ground at the actuator. Or vise versa from the actuator. We have herd of one bad 4x4 switch and a few actuators on here. Definatly more bad actuators. Please let us know what you find.
