2013 brute 750 keeps going into limp mode

I have a 13 brute 750 that keeps going into limp mode . I've replaced the belt and belt switch. I've took off my lights and radio . My battery is new , checked voltage sitting cranking and running all within specs. I'm not sure what else to do ?

So..when it does this what lights are flashing on the dash? And when it does this what do you do to get it out of limp mode? Is the belt switch ever tripped?

The cvt light flashes, and the belt switch is fine (isn't tripped) . I just do a belt light reset , and it goes back to normal then ride it and goes right back to limp mode with the belt light flashing

Take a good look into it's connector for any corrosion or broken terminal. Look also at all the pins on the ECU and the AC. For some reason the current stops flowing through that switch and if it does only for a split second, that error happens. Usually its a bad switch...but it can be a connection or some problem within the harness as well.
You can jumper the harness-side of the switch connector after the reset..do it with the key off... and if it quits, you know it's down there somewhere and if it does it again, its above somewhere.

I can't reset the CVT light. So, have about 95 hours on my atv, light came on when riding 4wd, I tried the reset procedure with the black and gray plugs ... nonluck. My warning light only blinks slow, reset never happens. I changed the belt even though original looked perfectly fine. ATV will not go I to 4wd and stays in limp mode..😖

That means there is an actual problem that needs fixed. Maybe just a bad switch ir a problem with one actuator. Sounds like you need to take it in.

Figured it out: in addition to swapping black and grey connectors as per instructions I also had to disconnect and reconnect two cable CVT connector located right above the clutch cover.

Obviously I checked the belt first and replaced it even though it looked fine.

Yep, many people forget that part of the reset procedure.
