Renli - 4wd not working

Recommended Posts

As of recent my 4wd stopped working, when turned on it comes on when it wants to or doesn’t come on at all.

When trying to climb something in 4wd you can hear a loud click/clung every little bit, I assume it’s the 4wd trying to engage. Sometimes it comes on/off/on/off all during one hill climb.

Any thoughts/suggestions?

assuming Renli has the same front end as a trooper,here's a few possibilities

1 could be a bad switch or connection not supplying power. do you hear the motor in the box run for a second or 2 every time you switch it?

2 the black box that's bolted to your front diff has water in it, remove it, stick a nail or something in the hole and activate, see if it moves in and out, open it up and inspect. report finding, how much water have you been in?

3 the teeth of the gear that slides over the other gears to lock in the front may be worn and have a burr on then on them, you may have to open up the diff. do 1 & 2 and let us know what you find, photos help.

May I suggest you fill out the profile so we can get to know you better, maybe there's some one just a block or two away that would want to help you.

1. When you say hear the motor in the box run what do you mean, the black box bolted in front? After being in 4wd for about a minute the black box starts beeping really loud. When I shut it off it goes away and if I put back in 4wd it comes back after a minute.

2. I just put a new black box on my Renli last week hoping that was the problem, didn't seam to help.

3. This will have to be my last resort, I don't want to open the diff.

The Renli's have 2 electronic parts to the 4wd system, one is a little black box that sends the signal to the electric motor on the diff. When there is a malfunction with the 4wd the box "beeps" to let you know there is something wrong.

I replaced the box that send the signal, that didn't solve my issue. It is most likely the electric motor on the diff, when I put it in 4wd the motor doesn't do anything or make any sounds so I'm assuming it's dead or only works sometimes.

      In the market for side by side. Narrowed it down between the pioneer 1000 or defender Hd9. Looking for pros and cons of both. Any info would be helpful in my selection process. Noise, speed, reliability, ride, all of it.

      Ive got an American Sportsworks BD-200.  I can’t get the ignition switch to work, but if I cross the solenoid, it starts right up. Runs great.  Can anyone send me a simple wiring diagram for a switch and where the 3 wires from the switch go!   Any help is greatly appreciated!!!   Thanks!

      Just bought a used UTV, my first SxS.  It is extremely LOUD!   Was thinking of wearing shooting ear muffs to muffle the noise but then my passenger( wife) and I couldn't hear each other over the shouting we have to do now.... On the other hand we sometime ride with my brother and his wife and would like to be able to communicate. We throught about FRS and/or GMRS radios (we are licensed for GMRS) but we'd have to wear earphones under our ear muffs. My state doesn't require helmets to ride UTVs.
      I suppose if everyone has a cheap FRS/gmrs bubble pack radio with a ear phone we could all talk to one another. Just wear an ear plug in the other ear or ear muffs.
      Looking for suggestions.

      Hey guys! Newbie here. I'm an old man who's better with plowing a mule (4-legged kind) than these newfangled beasts. I, and a friend of mine, just bought new Coleman sxs and are having to finish the assembly. I've been reading on this site and I'm falling on the mercy of you experts. The only way I'm an expert is that an "ex" is a has been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure. LOL First off, the 2 buggies have no ignition switches. They seem to mount on the dash, not the opening in the steering wheel shaft cover, so we ordered new ones that are supposed to fit. They are 8 inches long, and have a 4-wired white plugin which is slightly rectangled when looking at the end of the plug. The trouble is there's nothing to plug into. There is a three-wire grey plug close enough to reach the four-wire plug, but of course, they are not compatible. 
      Secondly, the blinker, light, ect. unit on steering wheel just spins around when touched. I see no way in heaven or earth to secure it. I've looked at a diagram on the Powersports site, but can't detect how it mounted. Fellows I'd be so grateful for any help with this. Me and my mule will even plow your garden for free, for your help. LOL
