How to Read Arctic Cat Snowmobile Fault Codes

Checking the codes on these charts can only give you a basic idea of your sled’s malfunction. If you want to find out more about the issue, you have to dig deeper and read the fault code using diagnostic-specific software. How can you do that?

As a rule of thumb, you can read the fault code on an Arctic Cat snowmobile in two different ways. One of your options is to transport the machine to a dealer who can read the fault codes for you. Your other choice is to buy an OEM or aftermarket snowmobile diagnostic software.

These special diagnostic tools contain software, diagnostic hardware, and cables to connect your sled to a laptop. Unfortunately, these tools come with very hefty price tags, and they are often only compatible with specific models.

This is because you can only find diagnostic ports on modern Arctic Cat sleds. In contrast, older sleds can tell you the fault codes with a flashing LED light. Let’s move on and see how it works!

Arctic Cat Flash Codes

Older Arctic Cat snowmobiles feature a control LED on their dashboard to display the fault codes. The number, duration, and sequence of the flashes can tell you the exact code.

When you turn the ignition key on the sled, the LED flashes once, which is considered normal as it’s a kind of self-diagnostic feature. But anything more than this initial flash would be a fault code.

In a nutshell, the flash codes for the majority of Arctic Cat snowmobiles are as follows:

  • 1 = Open or short circuit in TPS (throttle position sensor)
  • 2 = Open or short circuit in water temp sensor
  • 3 = Open or short circuit in intake air temp sensor
  • 4 = Open or short circuit in the barometric pressure sensor
  • 5 = Injector failure
  • 6 = APV Servo motor failure
  • Steady flash/Constant on = Overheating issues

(Keep in mind that these codes might be different on some specific models!)

How to Clear Arctic Cat Snowmobile Fault Codes

If you’ve fixed the problem on your sled, the fault code should disappear when you turn the ignition off and restart the sled. If the code doesn’t stop appearing on the screen this indicates that the problem still exists or one of your sensors is broken.

However, if it’s a “hard” code, the only way to clear it is to take the sled to a dealer who can hook it up to a laptop and eliminate the code with the diagnostic software.

Therefore, if you can’t clear the fault code by restarting your sled, best practice is that you contact your dealer!
