How do you reset a Honda Rancher’s computer?

My DCT light has been flicking on and off every other hour for the past two weeks. I don’t know if there’s a real problem or if my system’s just a little wonky. What’s the best way to reset my Honda Rancher’s computer?

ATVs can be lots of fun, but they’re also complicated toys. That said, you can reset a Honda Rancher’s computer when the ignition is off and the transmission is in neutral.
Follow these steps to reset your Honda Rancher’s computer:
  • Step 1: Start by turning off the ignition switch.
  • Step 2: Move the transmission into neutral.
  • Step 3: From there, you should place your ATV in D1 or D2.
  • Step 4: Now, hold down the up and down shift buttons and quickly turn on the ignition.
  • Step 5: As fast as you can, move open the throttle as much as possible before closing it completely.
  • Step 6: You should hear the engine cycle to let you know the computer reset.
  • Step 8: If you don’t hear the engine cycle, try again!
If you’re still having problems after resetting the computer, bring your ATV to a repair shop. While you can take care of some repairs at home, ATVs are expensive pieces of equipment that are best handled by professionals.
