I am in the process of converting my 2016 Grizzly to manual 4x4 with 501 parts diff lock cable and puller assembly off a 2016 kodiak. I will post pics when it is done but for the time being does anyone know how I can get the 4x4 and diff lock lights off once the manual pieces are on?

I really got nothing to ad to the thread, but I am curious.
Curious of why you are going through the expense and time of installing a cable operated 4wd system over a electrical one that is already on the machine?

just some friendly advice. I noticed you have 3 threads going on this subject. Your best to keep it to one. This keeps all the information collected in one spot rather than all over.

I play in water and mud and my electric 4x4 actuator has had issues for over a year and I finally said enough, it is cheaper to convert then fix the electric which will fail again.

And no rev limiter.

Because you're shifting into 4 wheel lock manually and not using the button the ECU doesn't know that you're in 4-wheel drive so the rev limiter won't kick in

Yeah I'm aware diff lock will not have a speed cut off, I'm just trying to figure out how to wire the manual puller up and get one 4x4 indicator working and the other off

The kodiaks have a separate switch mounted on the cable bracket that activates the light. Similar to the brake light switch.

If you don't have a Kodiak manual. I'll see if I can post a copy of that page

I've look but cant find the wiring diagram, I have it for my grizzly. I'm pretty sure I can get my 4x4 lights off by jumping the actuator connector pins if I can find the right ones since that's where the ECU gets the info from to send to the display, after that I have to figure out the wire or wires to get the 4x4 light to come on with the manual cable since I'll only be able to make one indicator work.

I have found how to get the 4wd light off by tricking the ecu into thinking it's in 2wd, but now I have to figure out how to get the 4wd indicator light to work with the manual cable once it comes in this week.

Issues with swtich

What kind of issues were you experiencing with your switch? Yamaha currently has a recall out for some of the 16's about the 4X4 actuator switch not working properly. They will replace at the dealer no charge. I have also heard of some dealers giving you the new switch assembly for free if you bring your VIN and they confirm it is one of the recall models.



The decompression spring also has a recall on certain models as well for 16

Already had 2 switches replaced 1 for the recall and 1 for warranty. My ongoing issue was my servo assembly

Looked over the schematics of the manual 4wd select vs the auto (button)select 4wd.

The White Black wire from the 15th pin up from the bottom on the ecu is the key wire.

On the manual select it just connect to a switch located on the lever bracket attached to the front diff.

On button select models the WB wire the switch is omitted and the WB wire is branched to the Servo and the Diag. port.

I would experiment with cutting the WB and installing a switch that grounds the wire.
What is your plan for all the other servo connections? At this point I don't know if they can just be terminated.

Steven at 501 may have more or better info.

Thanks for the info, the more I look at at I think I'll just ground the 2wd wire and just have no 4wd lights come on, on the display.

@Zackp16grizzly...Post back after you get the mod up and running.

99% of the time I like the manual lever compared to the push button. We don't have 4wd lock. Really we would very seldom need it. I considered buying the grabber when 501 had a deep discount on them but I missed the sale.

Got it all installed today, 4wd, diff lock all work perfect and the 4wd lights are off I'm very happy with it and cant wait to really test it out next weekend at wild country. I decided not to worry about having the 4wd light come on since its visually noticeable what selection your in. The only issue was mounting the lever, it's hard to find a good spot it will work but I got it where it worked out the best.

Congrats on a successful conversion!

Thanks for the info.

When I was thinking about adding the 501parts kit I figured I would mount the lever to the left of the shifter.
I wish yamaha would have mounted it in that area.
