3.3.9: Plow Mode (if equipped)

Plow Mode is a feature available for use with RANGER XP 1000 vehicles that have a factory installed Ride Command System with a winch and auto stop winch fairlead as part of the factory wiring harness.
It is not recommended to use plow mode with winch in rapid recovery mode.

Plow Mode is an automated plow control system based on vehicle gear position. To enable Plow Mode, do the following:

  1. On the display, go to “Settings,” “Vehicle,” and then select “Plow Installed.”

  2. From the Plow installed screen, move the toggle switch from “No” to “Yes.”

The procedure above is only required one time. The system will remember your settings for future use. If you want to disable seeing the plow mode screen as part of the gauges screen option, you can set the toggle back to “No” at a later date. Manual Plow Mode

Manual Plow Mode allows you to use the Ride Command touchscreen display to raise and lower the plow.

To raise and lower the plow, do the following:

  1. To raise the plow, press the up arrow on the touchscreen display and slide it to the left.

  2. To lower the plow, press the down arrow on the touchscreen display and slide it to the left. Auto Plow Mode

Automatic Mode allows the display to automatically lower the plow when you shift to Low and will automatically raise the plow when you shift to Reverse.

To switch to AUTO plow mode, the system requires the following conditions to be met:

  1. Plow must be fully up and the autostop fairlead must be detecting the rubber stopper.

  2. Gear Position must be in Park

  3. The Winch in and Winch out relays must be in place in the fusebox (factory installed)

Auto-plow mode will be disabled if excessive speed is detected.
Back Drag Mode
Automatic Mode must be selected to allow selection of Back Drag Mode.

Back Drag Mode reverses the normal mode operation. When Back Drag Mode is selected, shifting to REVERSE will lower the plow and shifting to LOW will raise the plow automatically. To engage Back Drag Mode, press the “Back Drag Mode” button on the Ride Command display. Plowing in High Range

Polaris does not recommend plowing in High Range. Excessive belt wear and belt failure, plow damage, and vehicle damage can occur. The system by default will not allow automatic operation when the vehicle is in High Range. This lockout can be beneficial while plowing as it allows the operator to shift to High Range to move the vehicle forward without lowering the plow automatically. Anytime the vehicle is shifted into High Range and Automatic Plow mode is engaged, a warning notification will appear on screen. If plowing in high is needed, touching the Enable in High button to enable High Range operation in automatic mode. If the user changes screens, or restarts the vehicle, High Range will be locked out again and the rider will need to acknowledge the over ride again. Faults and Warnings

The display has several built in fault checks for plow mode. When the system detects a fault, an alert will be shown on the plow mode screen. Some faults can be cleared by a quick power cycle of the ignition key switch ( less than 1 second). Some require a full reboot of the display to clear. If a plow mode related fault occurs, the display will show the required action needed to clear and reset the fault on the plow screen. Additional information about fault codes and corrective action are available from the display in the “Vehicle Diagnostics” screen found through the “Vehicle” settings tab.

5.5.3: DYNAMIX DV System Components

Suspension Control Module (SCM)

The Suspension Control Module (SCM) contains the logic for suspension control, including communications, operator inputs, and shock drivers. The SCM also has an internal 6-axis inertial measurement unit which is used to monitor and adjust the performance of the vehicle by the suspension control algorithms.

Moving or altering the orientation of the SCM may have an adverse effect on vehicle handling. Never move the SCM from it’s factory mounting location.

Electronic Shock Damping Control

Your suspension has electronically controlled, independent compression and rebound shock damping. This is used to control how fast the shocks compress and extend.

  • Compression Damping: Force acting against a shock movement in the compressing direction (shock length becoming shorter). When a shock is being compressed, lower compression damping results in faster compression movement and higher compression damping results in a stiffer, slower compression movement.

  • Rebound Damping: Force acting against a shock movement in the extension direction (shock length becoming longer). When a shock is being extended, lower rebound damping results in faster extension movement and higher rebound damping results in a slower extension movement.

  • 1 Rebound Valve

  • 2 Rebound Damping

  • 3 Compression Valve

  • 4 Compression Damping

Electronic Steering Rack (EPS)

This vehicle also has an electronically controlled power steering rack that has been developed to work with the DYNAMIX DV system in multiple ways:

  • This power steering has modes that adjust the power steering performance to the DYNAMIX DV ride setting.

  • Damping logic allows for the EPS to maximize assist levels.

  • The power steering logic was specifically tuned to counteract hits coming from the vehicle wheels and isolate the driver from feeling these torque spikes in their hands.

These electronically controlled systems work together to provide a full vehicle ride and handling mode that can be easily selected by the driver.

5.5.4: DYNAMIX DV Ride Modes

There are four Ride Modes with pre-defined suspension and steering settings to tailor the ride and handling to known uses and conditions. The Ride Modes are summarized below.



Suspension Description

Electronic Power Steering Description

Baja Mode

High compression and low rebound damping for large and aggressive suspension events.

Good feeling of the front wheels with excellent bump rejection.

Rock Mode

High compression and low rebound with angle based damping adjustments for maneuvering through rockier terrain. At higher vehicle speeds, damping becomes similar to Comfort Mode.

High assist level and bump rejection for low steering effort when maneuvering in rocks.

Track Mode

Medium compression and high rebound damping for aggressive cornering events.

Best feeling of the front wheels for aggressive cornering events.

Comfort Mode

Low compression and rebound damping to allow the shock to move and absorb smaller suspension events.

High assist level and bump rejection for low steering effort and maximum comfort.

Ride Modes can be cycled through using the “up/down” button on the steering wheel. It will not cycle from top to bottom with an “up” button press.

Notice the Mode Slide Out panel shows the active mode and the order/position. Ride Modes are described in more detail in the following sections. Baja Mode

Mode Character

  • Trophy truck

  • High dynamic ride height

  • Loose body movement

  • Nose high (front end high)

  • Ideal for rough/large input terrain

Use Areas

  • Desert/Baja

  • Whoops

  • Sand highway in Glamis

What the Suspension Is Doing

Compression Damping: High compression damping for absorbing bumps and not bottoming out in deep holes.

Rebound Damping: Low rebound damping allowing maximum shock extension for absorbing next bump. Slightly more rebound damping in the rear to stabilize chassis and provide front high feel.

Active Events: Very aggressive vehicle events so cornering, braking, and acceleration can still be done aggressively. On short duration Airborne events the dampers are biased to keep the nose high so that the vehicle leans back when traversing whoops.

What the Steering System Is Doing

Large input bump rejection. Medium assist level with a good balance between feeling the front-end grip and turning effort. Rock Mode

Mode Character
Developed for rock crawling. It maximizes ride height and improves pitch and roll stability during slow speed crawling maneuvers. Ideal for driving over obstacles and traversing hill peaks. Incorporates Angle Based Damping.

Phases to a comfort mode at higher speeds.

Use Areas

  • Slow speed rock crawling

  • Moab

  • Technical sections of King of Hammers

What the Suspension Is Doing

Compression Damping: Damping is increased on downhill side shocks and decreased on uphill shocks to lean the vehicle into the obstacle or slope.

Rebound Damping: Low rebound damping when level to promote shock extension and increase ground clearance. Damping is increased on uphill shocks to lean the vehicle into the obstacle or slope.

Active Events: Angle based damping is active at low speeds. At high vehicle speeds this mode is the same as comfort mode.

What the Steering System Is Doing

Large input bump rejection. High assist level so that the driver does not become fatigued while rock crawling.

Examples of Use

When the Vehicle is Level: Maximize ground clearance for obstacle avoidance with high compression damping and low rebound damping. Low rebound damping allows the tire to fall into the rock holes quickly not upsetting the chassis.

On Slope: Lean the vehicle into the hill with shocks. Increased compression and decreased rebound downhill. Decreased compression and increased rebound uphill. Track Mode

Mode Character

Brings aggressive flat cornering, lowest dynamic ride height, and the best tire grip and feedback. The vehicle rides with a lower stance that is ideal for heavy turning trails, hard pack and small/medium bumps.

Use Areas

  • Aggressive cornering

  • Dune (in the dunes)

  • Short course racing

  • Tight twisty trails

What the Suspension Is Doing

Compression Damping: Medium compression damping for a low dynamic ride height and tight feeling vehicle.

Rebound Damping: High rebound damping for a low dynamic ride height and tight feeling vehicle.

Active Events: Very aggressive vehicle events, cornering, braking, and acceleration. This mode keeps the vehicle flat and stable with balanced tractions for cornering.

What the Steering System Is Doing

Medium assist level so that the driver has the best feel of the front-end grip. Bump rejection features are still aggressive to minimize torque spikes felt in the steering wheel. Comfort Mode

Mode Character

Developed to maximize ride comfort to give the passengers a “plush” ride. Ideal for non-aggressive driving and rides with smaller suspension inputs, such as cruising home at the end of the day.

Use Areas

  • Any non-aggressive driving

  • Washes

What the Suspension Is Doing

Compression Damping: Low damping to maximize ride comfort.

Rebound Damping: Low damping to maximize ride comfort.

Active Events: Low aggressiveness on the active events. They respond as needed but are tuned to optimize ride comfort.

What the Steering System Is Doing

High assist level to make the vehicle easy to steer and reduce operator fatigue. High input bump rejection.

5.5.5: DYNAMIX DV System Features

These features are tuned differently based on the selected Ride Mode. Active Pitch Control

Dynamix DV constantly monitors pedal input and engine torque to predict when the vehicle is going to pitch forward or backward and applies damping to control the motion. This functions at all speeds and scales based on how much the throttle position is changing and how hard the vehicle is expected to pitch. Acceleration Control

The system continuously monitors vehicle speed, accelerator pedal position, and engine torque to reduce vehicle pitch body motion and optimize damping for different types of vehicle acceleration. For example, when you hit the accelerator pedal from a stop, the dampers are optimized based on which ride mode selected to achieve the desired pitch and traction response. Braking Control

The system continuously monitors the brake pedal position and vehicle deceleration rate reducing body motion and increasing braking stability in harsh terrains. This is the opposite of Acceleration Control. During hard braking events, the system will increase front compression to prevent vehicle nose dive, soften the rear compression damping to absorb braking bumps, and increase the rear rebound damping to control vehicle pitch. Cornering Control

Shock compression and rebound damping are adjusted when cornering. The inside shocks increase in rebound damping while the outside shocks increase compression to control body roll. The inside shocks decrease in compression to stabilize the vehicle for any bumps on the inside wheels while the outside shocks may reduce rebound in some cases to promote traction.

  • The outside shocks will resist compression and the inside shocks will resist extension.

  • Damping biases front to rear throughout the corner entry, apex, and exit.

Example Maneuvers

  • Turning

  • Cornering Airborne Event Control

The Dynamix DV system is constantly and automatically detecting for when the vehicle is airborne and when the vehicle has landed. The Dynamix system updates damping while airborne and post landing to optimize the vehicle response immediately after the airborne event.

  • While Airborne: Rebound damping is reduced to promote shock extension while compression is increased to 100% to ensure a nice plush landing.

  • After Landing: Rebound damping is increased to stabilize the landing and prevent loss of wheel traction or hopping of the vehicle.

The damping application is biased based on airborne duration so the vehicle has optimized performance in large airborne events and small airborne events like whoops. As the vehicle is airborne longer, the compression damping will gradually increase to maximize the bottom out performance when landing.

Example Maneuvers

  • Large whoops that cause an airborne event

  • Glamis jumps

  • Short course race jumps

  • Jumps Angle-based Damping

When riding on a slope or navigating obstacles, the shock dampers adjust based on the angle to lean the vehicle into the hill.

  • Increases compression and decreases rebound for downhill wheels.

  • Decreases compression and increases rebound for uphill wheels.

When riding on flat ground, the shocks adjust to maximize ground clearance for obstacle avoidance with high compression damping and low rebound damping.

  • High compression damping keeps the shocks extended which increases the ride height and ground clearance while traversing obstacles.

  • Low rebound damping allows the tire to fall into the rock holes quickly not upsetting the chassis.

This is used only in Rock Mode and at speeds less than 15 mph (24 kph).
Example Maneuvers

  • Slow driving on banked turn

  • Side hilling

  • Circles on hill DYNAMIX Instant Compression Button

When the DYNAMIX button is pressed, the system will increase compression damping to improve bottom out performance. The increased compression will persist as long as the button is pressed and momentarily after the button is released. This allows the vehicle to better absorb what the driver will encounter ahead, such as an obstacle, a hole on the trail or a G-Out when dune riding. Rebound damping is not affected by the DYNAMIX button and still operates based on the ride mode selected and the vehicle state.

This feature behaves the same way in each Ride Mode.
