Customer Question
I just bought...

I just bought a 2017 Polaris General 1000 crew, drove it about 30 minutes and the check engine light came on and it would idle but not accelerate!

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

It stays on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '17 motorcycle?

It’s a Polaris General 2017 1000 crew

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your bike yourself? What have you tried so far?

It’s not a bike, it’s a Utv

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It will accelerate for a short time then quit again
