Customer Question
I have a 2005...

I have a 2005 Honda rancher 400 trx fa. cleaned carb due to junk in it. Light on the speedometer housing? blinks 4 time then repeats. The atv will run but won't idle without the choke on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Sorry, I believe it is the computer talking.

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

Yes. took off the carb and cleaned the jets. one was mostly pluged.

It seems the auto response thinks you have a crv lol and not a 400 fourtrax. Sorry about that. I'm here to help.

So you are getting 4 blinks at startup?

4 Blinks on the AT models indicate a problem with the throttle sensor, and being that you did a carb job on it, that is most likely the problem. I would look for the tps (throttle position switch) and make sure its plugged into the carb, and that all other electrical connections from the carb to the throttle handle are ok. If all is set and plugged in, I would replace the throttle position sensor. Should be a very easy swap.
