Switch 2x4 to 4x4 and back.

Yesterday on my way back home I went to put it in 4x4 and wouldn't go. When I got home and turned the bike off and back on it went in 4x4. Tried going back to 2x4 and wouldn't go, not until I turned bike off and back on again. This is the only way to switch now. Any solutions to this issue?

I'm having the exact same issue on my 2012 Rene. Seems the solenoid squeals a little as well. Taking mine in under warranty next Saturday. I'll let you know

Hey, well I don't actually have a Can-Am yet, I have been shopping for one. But in my shopping I have aquired wiring diagrams for the 2012 bikes and I am an electrical guy.

Looks like its just a simple switch/motor system, nothing to do with any computer. I would check all grounds first for looseness. Also it looks like it gets its power from an accessory relay that also feeds the DC outlet. You could check the power at that outlet to see if the relay is faulty. That should tell you if it is just a simple power problem or the actual actuator.

It sounds VERY suspiciously like a ground problem to me.

Or if it is under warranty, just take it in. LOL

my '07 did this. it was dirty contacts in the Bar Switch, which is a GROUND. polished 'em up with 1500g sandpaper and die-electric greased 'em no more problems till lately. it's getting a little finicky again. there are small springs in there, take it apart carefully.
