Morning all.

Got a question. Yesterday my 1997 Bearcat 454 would not start with the electric start. I can pull start it easily, and all gears shift as they should.....HOWEVER, when I shift into Neutral, the little green "neutral" light no longer illuminates. and I assume is disabling my starter from working.

Is there is neutral "switch" of some sort that I can replace, and where is it located?

Again, the atv works fine, just have to pull start it, as the starter won't engage due to Neutral light not coming on. Any help would be great. Thanks

Will it start if you hold the brake ?

The wiring diagram at countrycat.com under technical will help.

When the light doesn't come work on my 650 cat it's the connection on the transmission. Not sure if your 454 is the same

sorry..this reply is so late...the problem ended up being the Plunger switch located behind the forward/reverse level..it was loose, and when shifting into reverse, it simply would slip out of the way and this not engaging the switch. I tightened it all up and it worked fine.
