2-4 wheel drive switch/actuator

okay i took my actuator apart and found my magnet broke i fixed the magnet and hooked the actuator up to a 12v battery and it works like a dream, put it back on and hook it up and it doesnt work, switch is getting 0v in the 2wheel drive position, and 4.86v in the 4wheel drive position.....is the switch supposed to have 12v?

A manual is your best friend. If you own a Kawasaki you should get one. The switch does not control positive voltage, it switches negative. If the switch is open it's in 4WD. If the switch is closed, it's 2WD. I'm not in a position to look up wire colors for you right now but if you had a manual, you could.

At the switch its only 4.8v. At the actuator its 12v cause there is a relay under the seat. Check the fuses too. That motor loosing the magnet might have blown one.

The switch supplies 12 volts NEGATIVE to the actuator controller when it's closed. That's why you are reading zero volts in 2WD (switch closed)

Think of it like this. You have 4.8 volts coming out of the actuator controller looking for a ground (negative). When you select 2WD, you supply that ground (negative) by closing the switch.

Did you fix yours? I'm fighting the same problem right now on my Prairie 700. I took my actuatoe off and gave it 12V and it worked fine, I did the switch test and got 5v in 2wd and 0v in 4WD. and still will not go into 4WD. I just used 4WD a week ago and it was sluggish going it, like it took a little longer to engage.

The motor part of the actuator is just the half of the story. The potentiometer (pot) part is another half and that's the part it goes wrong more than anything else. The pot tells the Controller the radial location of the motor shaft. If that's bad, the Controller doesn't know where the actuator is pointing at and would cause the 2/4WD light to flash. Usually water/corrosion messes up the pot.

Mine is acting funny too. 2wd/4wd was flashing so i bought a new 4wd actuator , no change. Pulled the kEbc and cleaned/greased it and its working great , still no change. 2wd/4wd light is still flashing. Their is something under the seat i was told about but not real sure what to be looking for .

You still have something wrong with one of them. This might help:
________________________________________

Actuator Control System Trouble Shooting,

When the actuator fails, the controller enters failure mode and the indicator light illuminates 2WD,4WD alternately.

1. If it alternates really fast at .5 seconds on 2wd and .5 seconds on 4wd then the problem is Selectable 2wd/4wd actuator.

2. If it alternates from 2wd/4wd at 1 second intervals, the problem is the Engine Brake Actuator.

3. If it alternates from 2wd/4wd at 2 second intervals, the problem is both the selectable 2wd/4wd actuator and Engine brake actuator.
