brand new HS700UTV-7 from home depot Check engine light


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I just purchased the UTV yesterday. drove it off trailer and about 1/2 mile no issues, temp gauge never moved.
later i  checked the oil level and filled the gas.  I let it warm up for a bit and the check engine light came on. 
The owners manual does not mention the check engine light at all.
The closest repair shop is 1.5 hrs 
Can anyone help me with reading / resetting the  code and see if it happens again?
Thanks in advance

That's unfortunate. It should display the code on your dash with the key on. It will say "P XXX" with x being the code number.

There is a service manual in the download section of this website, inside is a list of codes. I know there are also multipleuser manuals floating around for each of these models, some have better information than others. Let us know what you get for a code and we can help you further troubleshoot. I would bet that there's a loose wire that didn't get fully seated at the factory or air in the cooling system that needs to be bled or something else simple.

Unfortunately I'm on a very slow internet connection on my ship's satellite and can't watch the video at the moment.

The MIL light is controlled by the Delphi MT-05 EFI so it's strange that it's illuminated but not throwing a code. What I would do is check all the sensors connected to the EFI system remove them, and make sure they are plugged in all the way and no pins are bent. I've seen a few people report that a pin got bent on various plugs from the factory preventing proper connection of some sensors.

The sensors are all listed in the EFI section of the manual. Most of them are under the bed on top of the engine (follow the wiring harness).

Once that's done I would reset the ECU. To reset the ECU start the engine and run it up to redline in neutral (there's a Rev limitor don't worry). When it's revved up kill the engine with the key and let off the gas. Wait 15 seconds before restarting. That will reset the ECU back to factory and clear any codes.

Drive like normal and see if they reoccur from there.

Thank you for your help. After spending hour messing with it I gave up and exchanged it at Home Depot for another one.
this one runs much smoother :)

I've left the video in my drop box in case it helps anyone.

      New to the forum. 
      Came here looking for some experienced UTV users who can enlighten me about which brand should I pick for my very first UTV or SXS. 
      I'm between 3 brands and 3 models: 
      *Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXR   1000.
      *Yamaha wolverine rmax2. 
      *Can am Commander XTP. 
      The use I'm willing to give it is mostly to go to the range with my wife, load steel targets and all our shooting gear, we shoot a lot, rifles, Shotguns and Handguns for practice, training and competition. (Range is about 10 miles from home) 
      But also I want something that I can take to the trails and have fun on dirt, mud, rocks, puddles or creeks. 
      Any objective information will be appreciated, specially which is more reliable and durable. 
      Thank you and happy 4th of July.

      I have a 2018 Massimo Buck 400 with 278 miles. 
      Having issues with my brakes. Took the buggy hunting and when I let my foot off the gas pedal it pulls without pressing on the brake. I looked and the pads on all 4 wheels are all toast. The E-Brake hasn’t been on since I have had it. I am guessing it may be a master cylinder issue because all 4 pads are gone. They all seem to have worn evenly that’s why I think the master cylinder. Just got the machine used from a older couple and they said it sat for some time in there pole barn. Possibly the brake lines? Calipers? I took one brake apart and when I depressed the caliper it didn’t stay. Any help is muck appreciated.

      That's the question! Or, if you want to add details:
      (a) How do you use the UTV? (roads? off-road to get to trees? etc.)
      (b) If you are wearing a helmet--how frequently? What type of helmet?
      My own answers: (a) Most of the time off-road to get to downed trees, cut the trees to logs and haul the logs back for splitting. (b) Very rarely, a ski helmet and not a motorcycle helmet.
