I recently replaced the battery on my Artic Cat 500. It will start, but the speedo and other displays will not come on. It will come on with zeros and go off again. It will not show any data such as fuel level, hrs.,gear selection, or anything else. All other electricial systems will work,lights, etc.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Disconnect both battery cables and let it sit overnight. Then touch cables together then hook up battery sometimes it resets itself.

Thanks for the help, but that didn't work. I unhooked the battery ,but no luck. Tried this several times. The display unit will chatter and the speedometer needle will jump backward, the display will briefly come on and show zeros. As long as the key is on, engine running or not, it will contiue to do this. If I ride it several miles, might it reset itself? Or could I damage the ATV by doing this?

No it will be fine. Check the connection on the back of it.
