Honda Rancher 420 ES won't shift

My Rancher has given me no problems until last weekend when I was cruising along in fifth gear, and all of the sudden the back end locked up and I slid to a stop. After turning my wheeler off to inspect what happened I found I couldn't start it back up, and the display only read --. Once home I tried manually shifting it. I could'nt manually shift it down to first but i got it to shift up to second and started it. Once started, it would shift from second through fifth gear fine, but it wouldn't move when i gave it throttle. I shifted down from second and the display read -- again but it would move when gassed. If anyone has any clue what I need to do to fix this I would be very grateful for the help.

My wife's 420 ES would run fine, but when she was in 5th gear and cruising along it would read --, and you couldn't shift down. You had to turn it off and turn it back on and it would be fine again. I replaced the angle sensor and now it runs fine. However, hers didn't lock up like yours, so I'm not 100% its the fix, but it did fix her shifting problems.
