2005 Polaris Ranger No Reverse

Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 Polaris Ranger 4 x 4, I have all forward gears but I have no reverse.  The gear selector is working but after this reverse in not engaging anyone have the same issue and if so how do I go about fixing it?

You'll have to follow that linkage,  physically follow it. Check the lever under the dash n stuff for obstruction, but mostly wherever it ends up.  To see that its clear, and operating properly.  Sometimes branches, and stuff can foul the linkage. Cables can break, or jam. But since yours is catching the forward gears, its probably not a broken cable. It could still be jammed. I'm always pulling branches out from underneath mine. But it all starts there. Where it goes into the transmission, or transfer case, or differential. Wherever it goes.  Make sure its operating the lever, or otherwise working properly. After that, it's mechanic territory. But you have to eliminate the simple stuff first.

Finally found the issue when we got the gear casing out and opened up, it would seem the reverse chain had snapped, resulting in no reverse.   After much swearing and cursing , and waiting for parts, the new chain, we finally had success.   I notice that the grinding sound, which seem to be a problem with a lot of the polarises especially in reverse has now gone.

Changing the chain was interesting as there was nothing on YouTube that tells you how to put the new chain on.  I had to remove both the bearing and the dog engagement face also the gear-33T, 6 face engagement, once you do this the chain will basically slip on into place, you have to do this, otherwise the chain will not go on.   There are some good videos on you Tube that you should watch before attempting to do this.   One last thing, check that the gears are engaging and in the right place before putting the gear case back into the body. 

If I can answer questions regarding this please don't hesitate to drop me a line.

      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

      Hello, I just bought a 2004 Polaris ranger TM. It did not come with a lower seat. New seat is $500+. Looking on ebay for a used one and they don't list the Ranger TM model. Does anyone know what different Ranger years and models will fit the ranger TM? Is there a easy way to get a non TM ranger seat to work? Or do I shell out the $500 on a new seat? This is my first UTV. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you

      Looking to either buy a 2016 ranger or a Yamaha Viking. I was told that the Viking is less powerful. What are the pros and cons of each and which one would you go with. Thanks

      How large (watts) of a light bar can I add without upgrading the battery. I see the generator output is 550 watts at 3000 RPM but I do not see the amp hour rating of the battery.
