Engine cutting out/Reverse light lighting Up

Had my Rhino out for three days last weekend in the heat. On the third day it started crapping out when ever I went over 30 to 32 mph and at the same time the Reverse light on the dash would light up. If I let off the gas and drop below 30 the light would go out and I could continue to give it gas without the motor cutting out. It did this all day when temps were 100 plus and into the night when it was appx. in the 80's.

I have a stock 660 with no upgrades to the motor. I cleaned the air filter before the trip but have not done much beyond that.

Any Suggestions?

when was the last time you checked the fuel filter??? we moved ours in the 660 so it was easier to access and got a clear one.... the light thing is a mystery

My rhino did the same thing
Go take the engine cover off, and both seats
take the air box all the way out and there is a sencor right under the air box
there will be a one black wire on the sencor.
to check: pull on the wire and it will pull out of the connector(it wont look broke but it will be inside)
Try that let me know!!!

This is most definitely the issue. It has happened to hundreds of Rhino owners.

Does this apply if you have an after market CDI with reverse limiter removed?

yep, check the reverse rev limiter. We have an aftermarket cdi and it did the exact same thing. Of course it did allow Tweeter to finally beat me while i was having issues HAHAHA.

i just pulled the wire off the sensor and put a ring terminal on it and grounded it out. You loose the light on the dash that says you're in reverse but oh well and also loose your reverse rev limiter so be careful when backing up.

If you fix it the way you stated will that also fix the problem of the motor cutting out?

Also can you buy a new wire? And would that fix both problems.

It should. The engine cutting out is probably because of the sensor failing.
You can replace the sensor$, or you can ground the wire(free).

Just out of curiosity, my 06 rhino has a green and white wire under the air box going to a sensor, is this the same thing?

My rhino did the same thing. If your reverse light is on while driving forward. The machine thinks its in reverse and turns on the reverse rev limiter. I was able to just clean up the connection and tighten the connector, fixed my problem.

This is the most foolproof way to solve the problem. I chased mine to no avail, till I got sick of it and ended up cutting and grounding the wire to the block. DONE!
