I think you on a cat you have to jumper the two wires that go to the switch ( tie them together. Polaris I know you use to pop the hood reach down to the right and just on plug it. The thing would run. If your key is broke off in it cant you take a screw driver and turn the thing on??? Leave the broken key in it!! You can take the seat loose and slide tha back and on scew the plastic part on the front it should tip back enuff to get in there. two scews on the top and two on the bottom by your foot rests. Switch on a cat would be normally open in the off so you have to tie the wires together. A polaris it was normally closed in the off so you just unpluged it and it ran. hope that helps

in the old days the way to start a sled with no key was unplugging the switch from the inside. then it will start with no key.

You dont need to cut anything. Disconnect the kill switch/TSS. Then you need tog et behind the key ignition. When you get to it you will see 2 plastic pieces connectiing to itl A top one(off) and a bottom one(on) take a screw driver and disconnect the bottom one. Thats how you hotwire a Arctic cat............

How do i know this? Ran into a problem when my sled was at a buddies house. He left for vacation and took my key out. I cam to pick up sled and take her bake home seeing as i had a run in with a burried fence at about 35-40mph(Ouch). Hotwired it then drove up to the cat dealer. Asked for a new key and they looked at the sled.....With a broken hood, broken windshield, Hanging disconnected TSS, and no key in it and still running becuase the only way to shut it off was to choke it out. Needless to say they started asking all sorts of questions......mainly referinig to where was my paper registration, pretty sure they were certain i stole it.

That works on open ignition systems (98 and newer) Close ignitions need the key switch jumped. Or just borrow a key from someone since most are the same.
