2010 ECU code 17/1 with wrench flashing

i've been looking everywhere to try and find more on the issues i have now with my sled. went out yesterday, sled took a ghost ride into a tree, haven't assessed all the damages yet but the cluster has a flashing wrench, and also intermittantly flashing code 17 and i saw 1 flash once too. I know its exhaust temp sensor, but theres no signs of it being damaged. it runs good still.

On an unrelated topic, how much will i be looking at spending on a new bumper, hood, throttle side belly pan, air box, exhaust sensor?

I feel your pain. I'm in the middle of patching up my hood. So far I'm at about $100. Just a guess, but maybe something was pushed out of place from the impact, an electrical plug or something. I had a lot of stuff displaced when my sled ghosted into a tree.

I don't know if the ecu is auto reset or if a dealer has to do it.

I know a hood is from $500-700 depending on options, and that doesn't include the screens or frogzskins. There are a lot of parts lookups on the web, just google arctic cat parts.

Thanks man, I think I'm gonna try to plastic weld the hood and the hood hinge back on but the airbox and front bumper are a total write-off. Still don't know what the flashing wrench means tho. I saw your other post impaled, that sucks too!

Sled: 2009 M8 153" LE

Front bumper $139
Bumper screen $16
R/H Bellypan $87

I live in Alberta so prices are Canadian. I just finished fixing the wife's sled after she put it through a fence. Plastic isn't cheap.

Yeah a little higher than US, you're right, plastic certainly isn't cheap! It would have been cheaper if I'd torn the A-arms off of it. But that would have probably involved frame damage too and that would probably have been pricy, not to mention that the ride out would have been really difficult.

The plastic that AC used in the hood actually melts pretty easily, welding might certainly be a good option. I used a heat gun to straighten the pieces that were bent up and accidentally welded the upper light support back into place. The paint started peeling before I could get the dash to weld back together, though. I think I'll probably tackle the dash crack after this weekends ride. I'll probably do as I did with the front pillar: Place an aluminum patch underneath, in this case with a 90 degree bend in it to form a new headlight support, rivet and glue this in place, and glass over all of this for a smooth surface. Then I'll cut out and install the Frogzskins dash vents and they'll probably cover most if not all of the previous damage. I'm seriously debating the new hood now. This one isn't looking too bad, and I don't care nearly so much about it anymore.

As it is I'm going to slap a frogzskin on the right side and be riding this weekend. Getting a little snow in the Bighorns now, supposed to snow tomorrow again. Gonna try to stay away from the trees this time!

Ya wow, me too buddy, after all said and done,bought a new bumper, throttle side belly pan, air box, and still not sure about the exhaust sensor, have to get it all back together to start it up again but i should be back in the mountains by the weekend, just waiting for a few things to show up tomorrow.

Its alittle harder to accept the fact i need a new hood. I'm going to frankenstein it for the rest of the season! I JUST put a wrap on it before christmas...

It hasnt been a good season for me, 2 rides before it hit a tree. I bent up both rails in a ditch. Then maybe 2-3 rides before that i bent up the a-arms in revelstoke. What a pain in the a** to drive all the way there and hit a rock. Luckily it was rideable and i managed to limp it out but still.

If it happens again you can use a sensor for a late model GM duramax, all you need to do is change the plug. Usually they are around $20 at auto parts store.
