2008 Commando 650 issues


Recommended Posts

Hi all . new here , and from manitoba canada

just traded a skidoo for a 2008 commando 650

had some issues but overall not bad

problem i have is it was running and then just quit ...

now i have zero digital led cluster , it flickers for a second when ya turn key on then goes off and stays off .

no power to radio any more either ...

i have a lightbar hooked up and switches on and off ,because its wired direct i suppose ,  i have had battery charger on unit charging battery also , which dont make a difference ,

i went today and bought 2 new relays and put them in , no change ..

i have like zero power going out it seems ... the digital dash will not stay lit up , no cranking over of any sorts , no fuel pump noise , not sure if it suppose to make noise or not , ...

i have found random fuses 2 to be exact and replaced them and they werent burnt , and still no change ...

it seems to be a wiring nightmare under passenger seat , someone made a mess of wiring , i have disconnected winch and misc stuff ...

any idea what would be going on ,, like i dont understand why the digital cluster would light for a split second and then go off .

i have attached 2 pictures because i am unsure of what these 2 objects are in the pictures ..

any help is greatly appreciated ....

1 more thing to add , the clutch cable is broken i have new one , just havent replaced it yet , would there be a sensor or something so it knows whether clutch is engaged or not top start as a safety feature ?

it had started in gear before when i picked it up from previous owner so im thinking no , but unsure , so i  will ask here ..

any help is greatly appreciated ...


super frustrating ...



i can take more pictures if required also ..

      I purchased a 2008 Qlink Rodeo 700 a few years ago.  I am from Michigan.  Anyone know of any local repair shops?  I had a dead battery, so I replaced that, started right up, ran the quad down the road, (this was last year), put it in the barn, shut it off.  then a couple weeks later, went to go start it again, and nothing.  I have power to the dash lights, horn, turn signals, wench etc, but nothing to the starter switch, and I hate electrical crap.  Battery still reads 12.x volts.
      Any suggestions would be amazing.  I've owned it over 2 years, and haven't run 1 tank of gas through it.  No time to screw with it, and very frustrated.  Hoping someone can offer some advice of value.

      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

      So I've got a Hisun 550 that I was doing some work on that required removing the CVT and it's housing. Upon attempting to reinstall the clutch, sheaves, etc, I found that the belt no longer fits - it's far too wide. None of the parts have been replaced, they're all OEM. Exactly the same parts as what I took off a few weeks ago.
      To be more specific, my belt is 1.25in wide, but the gap between the clutch and the primary sheave is only 7/8in wide. I'll include a few photos to explain.
      Has anyone ever experienced such a bizarre problem? Any help at all would be appreciated, I've been stuck on this for a month. I'm open to just about any suggestion.

      Less than 40 miles can barely start. Dealer is working with Hisun on a number of other issues on this UTV. Can not get clear info on the meaning of these E codes this is getting. Anybody have some clear info for me?
