Kawasaki Prairie 360, Kawasaki Prairie 650, Kawasaki Prairie 700, Kawasaki KFX700 V-Force, Kawasaki Brute Force 650, and Kawasaki Brute Force 750 ATVs are fitted with drive belt alert systems. When a fault is detected the system is tripped and will make your ATV sputter in “Slow Mode” and on some models disable four-wheel drive altogether.
The reset is as follows:
- Turn the ignition OFF
- Disconnect the belt failure switch at the 2-pin connector above the CVT cover
- Disconnect both sets of 5 pin connectors located above the CVT cover. Note: These connectors are located just beneath the shift handle on the right side of the 650; one is black and one is grey
- Connect these 5 pin connectors to their opposite pairs (grey to black and black to grey)
- Turn the ignition switch ON
- The belt-warning lamp should be flashing at like 0.5s intervals for a few seconds then start to flash slower let the lamp flash for at least seven seconds
- Wait seven seconds or more, turn the ignition switch off
- Reconnect 5 pin connectors to their proper location (black to black, grey to grey)
- Connect the belt failure switch 2-pin connector (wires from CVT cover)
- Turn the ignition switch on to see that the belt warning light is not flashing

I also have a prairie 360 with a flashing light. Manual says the code COULD be various things - all expensive. Took to shop, they diagnosed as 4wd actuator. Before buying expensive part, I have questions. 1. Can a "used" part be used here? 2. Is there a way to be sure this IS the problem? Any other suggestions to fix.
