I am from Flower Mound, TX, am a professional wildlife trapper (@protrappervinzo). Was hoping to use the viking for farm tasks and larger trapping jobs like beavers, and coyotes.

Well I managed to get into my viking, and roll it pretty much immediately. Never owned a recreational vehicle so I need assistance. From what I read, there should be a tip over sensor that I need reset possibly. Took the flip like a champ, it looks like it went through it without anything more than a broken taillight, but it will not start. Acts like it wants to but does not.

If anyone else here is close by Flower Mound, wouldn't mind some local trail areas.

The rollover sensor will keep it from turning over at all. You just have to turn the key off and let it sit for a minute or two, maybe even disconnect the battery. Then it should fire up again.
Do the dash lights flash when it starts up? The 700 has onboard diagnostics that give a morse code at key on.
You can download the shop manual and it has all the codes.

If this doesn't work you may have to take it back to the dealer to get the CPU reset.

Thank you, I will try the disconnect and then pay attention to the dash lights. They do not flash that I can remember.

Do you know where I can download the shop manual?

I checked but the light just appear to come on as regular. and the disconnect of the battery did not accomplish anything.

Now it just makes a buzzing noise when attempting to start.

The tipover sensor code is stored in the ECU memory every time the vehicle is overturned. This can be cleared through the dashboard diagnostics procedure in the manual.

It could have compression lockup from having engine oil in the chamber from the roll over too, was it upside down for long?

Does he have a shop? I guess I will have to take it in to the dealership. I thought I found a wire that was loose just over what I believe is the throttle body. Which made sense now because I noticed a code "39" on the dash and it was a fuel injection problem, but now it just buzzes from the from where all the wires in bulk plug up.

Code 30 is the lean angle sensor. Code 39 indicates a fuel injector short or open circuit. Service manual indicates to check the connection at the injector and the ecu. If not you have a wire harness problem, a defective injector or a malfunctioning ecu

Since you have code a 39, you'll need to inspect the injector. I'll wager that when the machine rolled, the injector or harness was damaged by the very guard that is intended to protect it. It's easy to access, just lift/tilt the bed, and have a look. There is a large flat crossmember that runs across the rear upper frame rails, over the top of the engine. It covers the injector, along with part of the fuel hose and harness. Four 10mm bolts hold the crossmember on to the frame, and I believe there may be several clips that hold the wire harness and fuel hose to it, also.

Thanks everyone, for the assistance. The injector cable was disconnected, but the vehicle will not turn over now, just a buzz noise coming from the what I believe is the ecu. Battery reads 11 on the dash. Perhaps attempting to jump it will help?

If the battery is reading 11 it is flat. Jump it or stick it on a charger.

Luther is in his late 60's, so don't know if he would have the knowledge. You can call him, Luther Alexander. Tell him that Blair referred you.

but would a flat battery really lead to injector codes?
No the battery has become flat because it wouldn't start because of whatever is wrong with the injector.

If the injector cable was disconnected it must have been pulled off by force so maybe the pins are damaged inside the wiring plug? What madviking said makes sense.

I haven't been able to find a downloadable service manual for the Viking. If someone can point me to one, I'd really appreciate it.

After the injector wires were clipped back together and it was jumped the viking started with no problem. I was able to pull it out of the pasture, now hopefully I will have time to pull the tire off that came off the rim tomorrow.

I posted a pic from my phone to my twitter @protrappervinzo

thanks for everyones replies
