Polaris Industries is recalling 2,110 model year 2016-2017 GEM E2, E4, E6 and ELXD vehicles.
The drive mode switch can send an incorrect signal, causing the vehicle to become inoperative or go in the opposite direction than intended.
If the operator intends to go forward, but the vehicle reverses instead, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
Polaris will notify owners, and dealers will replace the drive mode system with one that has separate inputs for each position (forward, neutral and reverse), free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in August 2018.
Owners may contact Polaris customer service at 1-855-863-2284.
