My RTV 500 was shut off in reverse, 4WD & diff lock on. Now I can't get it back in neutral to start. Any ideas or how I can get around the neutral safety switch?

Once you locate the switch it should be easy to jump. Or you could try jacking each end off the ground to take the pressure off the gears. ....

Got around the neutral safety and started it OK, but cannot get it in gear. Do you think raising it off the ground to relieve pressure would do it? ....

I'm only talking generalities, having no idea what an RTV500 is.

If it's simple driveline lockup, you could try towing it for a few feet in the opposite direction it last drove in. But there are different kinds of diff-locks (don't even know if yours is L/R or F/R), and they're subject to damage, so if that's part of the problem, taking pressure off the wheels (and trying to rotate them a bit by hand) might be a safer fix to try. If you have or can borrow the equipment, it would be even better to have all four up at the same time.

If you get it released, the general operational rule for the future is to not put it in 4 when on a non-slip surface, and use the diff-lock only when needed, and as briefly as possible. ....
