2008 Rhino. This weekend I hit 4X4 on the machine. It acted like an 'off button. Killed the engine instantly. Display still lit up. Then when I restarted it the gears were sticky. Couldn't get it out of H. Shut it off for a few minutes. Then it stared no problem and the gears were fine. Retried putting it into 4X4 and the same outcome. Twice.
All help appreciated.

Something isn’t right in your front diff-if it’s locking up may explain why it’s hard to get out of gear..Even worse if the machine is on a slope. -drain/inspect the F diff gear lube...As for the front diff servo and dash selector switch, sounds like there working..Efi engines need good voltage to function-a short somewhere?..wouldn’t rule it out...hope it’s simple....!

I found this thread, do you think it might be the same issue?
Having shift servo powered up in both directions would have a large current draw I would think....How about putting a volt gauge on the battery, key on, select 4x4, Should hear servo operate, look for Excessive voltage drop, key off ( maybe it shifted),unplug shift switch from loom ( prove if it’s shorting) see if it starts & has 4 w drive-
