Help! Hub safety-hour meter switch problem

Recommended Posts

2002 ranger 500 4x4 stopped running and wouldn't restart. Service manual wiring diagram helped identify the hub safety switch as the culprit. Using jumper wires to bypass  switch allowed the engine to start and run normally. Inspection of switch showed melted epoxy and a strong smell of burnt electrical. Unable to find replacement part either used or new. Is there a work around other than jumper wiring?

Thanks for the link Travis, but I'm dealing with an odd ball ranger. The VIN indicates a 2002 series 11. My service manual doesn't show a 2002  4x4 wiring diagram for it. It shows starting in 2003 which matches up with what I'm seeing under the hood.  Polaris customer service can't find a 2002 diagram. In addition, the VIN has only 16 alpha/numeric characters, not the 17 required for customer service. Jumper wiring it to bypass this switch concerns me because it feeds the alternator control switch. Don't want to fry other components.

I found this LINK , it shows it used on virtually all early 00's rangers, from 2000 to 2004.

A switch is just that - it let's voltage pass or it doesn't.  If the full-time on bothers you with a jumper, just put a $1.99 rocker switch inline with it.  Turn it on when you're ready to drive, off when you park it.

Since the 2003 is so similar. Is it possible that the switch from the 2003 could be made to fit the 02 model?

      Hi, I was hoping to find an "in-color" diagram, at least, of the wiring from the speedometer and where all the wires are connected.
      The entire wiring of the entire side-by-side would be wonderful!!!
      I purchased a used 2008 Joyner Commando 650 2 seater from an individual and they butchered the wiring...something has come lose and I cannot for the life of me tell where it is supposed to connect. It is a ground wire and is till connected to the frame but I don't know where else it is suppose to connect.
      What makes me think it goes to the speedometer is that when it came lose, the speedometer immediately stopped working.
      If anyone can help me with this, I would appreciate it tremendously. There is nothing on Joyner's website...and I already looked on YouTube to no avail...might be something there but I could not find it...

      Hey. I recently got a used Polaris Ranger 570, and I’ve noticed if I let off the gas going down a hill, after about 5-10 seconds, it kicks out of gear or free wheels. Is this normal? It’s kind of annoying imo, since you have to hold your brake so much more. Also, is it bad to leave it in 2wd Diff Lock? I have turf mode, but like to keep it in diff lock because I climb some pretty steep hills frequently. Is it bad to engage/disengage diff lock/4wd while moving or in a pull? Thanks

      Hi,
      New member from South Louisiana. I have an American Sportsman UTV with a Subaru/Robin EH65 twin cylinder 2 barrel carburetor. I had starter trouble (solenoid) and allowed my grandson to pull engine in order to change it. You cannot pull engine shroud with the engine in machine and cannot remove starter without removing shroud. Kid is great mechanic but lacks experience. Putting engine back in and he realizes he didn't mark wire locations. I have schematics but colors don't match what I have. Anyone out there that can help me wire this engine back up?

      Good morning everyone, appreciate any help on this.  I picked up a 2013 Hisun 800 for a project.  Previous owner had fried a lot of the electrical with a bunch of aftermarket audio equipment, so I have been replacing all of the wiring to give it a fresh start.  I'm 95% there with a couple of plugs I can't figure out where they need to be routed and the reason for me reaching out for help here.
      1.  A female 2-port white plug that comes off the end of the main harness, close to the side where the terminal hook ups tap into the battery.  It has a Blue/black-stripe wire and a White/blue-stripe wire. (Pictures: https://ibb.co/m9PRDqX and
      https://ibb.co/9pHZsFj). I'm assuming it is another single offset fuse or module like the other pieces around it but can't find anything on what it might be or that wire color combination in the manual/wiring diagrams...anyone know what this guy goes to?
      2.  On the crank position sensor (torque sensor), the wires that I have coming off of that are a green wire and blue/light-gray-stripe wire (https://ibb.co/FmJLJfs)...any idea on where this guy is suppose to plug in to?
      Again, thanks for any help you can provide!
      -Justin
