Wow Will, so this has a 700 engine in it ? There is no way to signal the ECU without three signals from 'ON' position . The CHECK TECH software will not jive with a 2008 either. The dealer can hook it up to the POCO software... That is about it ..

Other than that, you could check to make sure the connection from the ECU is clean and tight and check the grounds also. I would be looking hard at the TPS and CPS harness's for chafing/damaged wires . You may want to re-install a proper ignition switch ..

"It also makes me wonder if it even has a Polaris engine in it anymore. "

That was my first thought when I saw how heavy it is but then I thought.....he would of told us right off if didn't.:cautious:

I was thinking about this as I was driving my Ranger (Bike) a mile down to the only store on the island . Maybe the fuel in the tank was bad..........mud.....water.....etc. I see he drove it a bit but that may have just used up the fuel in the filter and gas line.

Will, "changed the TPS. " with a OEM ? Did you change the TPS BEFORE you posted the first time ? Please answer carefully the TWO questions .

Do you have any idea how old the fuel is ?

The 2009 700 parking brake functions that way limiting the RPM if the PB is not fully disengaged but the 2008 is a mystery to me in a lot of ways. Perhaps Robbie (BPS) will stop installing his new 3' high lift kit on his 2008 long enough to chime in. The 2006 & 2007 700 donot have that feature.

The 700 engines are all the same 2005-2009 . The PB features changed considerably as new model years came out .
It is very possible the 2008 had the same PB feature as the '09.

I just checked on Partzilla and the 2008 crew has the same PB set up as the 2009 700 4X4 . I think you may have found the problem. Just Fyi, just like 2007 700's the 2008 TPS setting in the service manual will not always work.
