    I am servicing my Polaris sportsman 700 and have a issue. Wondering if any of you gear heads had any advice. Everything works great but the engine will not shut off after you turn the key to the off position. No lights but motor will still run and go. Any Advice????

    Is it EFI? Which means it probably has an ECM/ECU to go along with it. To kill the engine, it's usually a matter of grounding out a CDI wire, but the ECM or other relays are in the circuit as well (to protect it from theft). I've heard the key switches lose their ability to make contact when the key is turned (the internal electrical contacts wear out or get overly corroded), it's an option to try. Otherwise, make sure the key switch has a good ground to it. Get a manual and wiring diagrams and see where you can follow the problem. You'll need a multimeter. I've seen the EFI's have diagnostic plug-ins available that could reveal codes within the ECM/ECU.

    Opps, hit the wrong button. When you turn key switch off try wiggling key and moving it back and forth each direction lightly to check for bad connection.

    Just for an update...finally got the quad back together and rode around a while. Went to shut it off still ran, giggled the key and it shut off...tried again and had to keep giggling the key. Still isn't as fun as the dub
