2006 Rancher es 2 Blinks

I've met my match, my rancher flashes 2 times and will not shift once the blinking starts. I brought it to a local shop and the guy swore it was the angle sensor. I figured why not and I purchased a new one and installed it. Didn't fix anything. So I looked online, it suggests the ecu, the new one just arrived and....nope. Here's why I'm confused, it's not permanently flashing and just a few moments ago I figured out what's causing it to start blinking. Once I apply the left (es shift side) break or the foot break the blinking starts. I have a hand break on the right side and it does not cause the blinking. I'm confused at this point and the closest mechanic is over an hour away (minus the local guy who let me artery and was the reason for wasting money). Does anyone have any advice for me on what to look for?

Welcome to the forum.

The left brake is cable/mechanical, and I don't believe the 350 Ranchers had brake lights, did they?

Free factory service manual downloads are here. You should be able to figure out what the 2 blinks signifies.

I still haven't fixed the issue. But while only using the brake on the right handle I was able to run it around for about the last half hour with no problems. But as soon as I used the brake on the left handle the two flashes started again. I'm open to any and all ideas for a possible solution

I am not sure about the trx350 ranchers having issues with the front left brake lever ?, but I think the newer trx420's have it where you could pull the left brake lever ( or was it the right front ? ), and start it in gear ?. if this is the case ?, was the lever changed out at one point from another atv ?. I have never heard of any trx350 ranchers have the brake lever tied to the ecu ?, unless it's something on the late models ?.

I purchased used, but it barely had any miles on it. It only has around 2000 miles after this long. I don't understand it either, for the break to be the reason the atv stops working has me all types of confused at this point.
