Just picked up a ‘17 XP900 a couple days ago. Today was the first day I got to really run it. Ran fine for first 3/4 of a mile, shut machine off for a few minutes. When I started it back up, had check engine light and Ranger would not go over 10 mph tops. Upon further inspection the engine codes were 0-65613-2 and 0-91-3. Previous owner had accelerator pedal/assembly replaced recently. I was frustrated that a machine I have barely drove had broke down so I didn’t investigate much until I had time to cool down. Is there anything I should be looking for specifically on the accelerator assembly, wiring harness besides the obvious water intrusion/short? It’s hard to believe a relatively new pedal assembly would malfunction in a matter of months. The machine in question did have a fair amount of snow on the floor boards when I brought it home. I had it in a heated shop to melt off overnight. It that all the more moisture it would take for it to act up? Thanks in advance

Everything I've read on other forums about the same problem points towards a bad throttle pedal, or bad connections to it. Seems to be happening to the newer Rzr's too.

Just seems odd it would be the pedal again after being done maybe 3 months ago by previous owner. But anything is possible anymore I suppose. I’ll pay special attention to the connectors for sure

Solution: it was the 3 month old pedal. Took the pedal out of my Ranger and plugged it into my brother-in-law’s Ranger and it immediately threw the same codes it was showing on mine. Put his pedal into my Ranger and it runs great. Time to get a new pedal. 2nd time this Ranger has needed a new pedal. Hope it doesn’t make a habit out of it

Are you running in deep water?
No, I hadn’t. I can’t answer for the previous owner, but he mainly used it for ice fishing supposedly. It’s back up and running like a top now thankfully.
