  15. 03 rancher purchased new randomly this machine has gone to a flash mode where the gear indictor flashes has done this off and on since it was new , now it has started doing it within a 100 yards of travel got to stop turn ignition of back on then it will shift again , usually the speedometer is not reading when it does this. Has a NEW angle sensor on it , when the speedometer is working all is fine . Gear indicator will flash 11 times when this happens . Any help would be appreciated . Thanks Lildog
