Angle sensor went out on my 06 Rancher. Searched all over the site about inatalling this. I have printed out all the scanned manual pages on the subject that were posted. They all seem to be from different bikes. I am trying to get this thing going for deer season.
Here is the problem. I installed the angle sensor with the plug pointing straight up, and then turned it 90 degrees to preload it so that the plug pointed towards the passenger side of the bike, which is how it was originally. The diagram posted showed it being installed and then turned 90 degrees so it faced the other way. I am thinking this diagram is for a different bike.
I went to intialize the ecm. The instructions I found on the site showed a few steps that I cant do. The bike the diagram showed doing the initialization had a gear shift and an auto manual switch. The 06 Rancher has neither. Just the esp switches and the manual shift on the side of the motor that you have to put the gear shifting tool on to use.
I skipped to the part about the esp switches in that diagram. I started the bike and let it idle for a minute or so. Shut it off, and then turned the key on while holding both up and down buttons. I immediatley released the buttons and the "n" indicator was flashing continuously with no breaks in the flashing to indicate a code. I then pushed up, down, and up on the esp buttons. I waited to hear the sounds of the shifter initializing. I never heard it do anything. I sat and waited for 10 minutes or so and never go it to do anything or show the flashing "--" to show intialization complete.
What is going wrong here? Is the a different way to preload the angle sensor on the 06 Rancher? Is there different way to initialize the ECM? I would really like to get this thing going.
Before all this started, the reason I went for angle sensor replacement was that it got to where it would never shift out of neutral. The neutral indicator would just sit there and flash 5 times. Everything I have read said that was the code for agle sensor. Every now and then I could get it to shift into first but that was it. I have adjusted the clutch and that seems to work fine. I just need to get this electronic shifter working again..
