Check the voltage regulator. Measure the voltage of the battery with a volt meter. Then crank machine and measure again. It should be about 14 volts. I hope this helps..

### 2004 polaris ranger battery not staying charged when operating but when engine is off battery not affected cutting out and dying what could be the problem?

check tightness and clean both terminals and cables

how old is the battery
may have a dead cell ..wont take charge

check the charging input to the battery with a volt meter
has to be above 12 volts
if lower or equal to 12 volts ...no good
the charging stator inside the engine needs testing or repair or replace

stator is another word for an alternator or a generator

why it plays up
best guess the ATV if a 12 volts system wont run on 11 volts

### 2012 rzr4 800 will the stator charge at all if its bad

A typical, fully charged & unloaded 12 volt lead acid battery should indicate about 12.6 V. Check the voltage / percent charge chart below:

Volts - Charge
11.7 - 10%
11.9 - 20%
12.1 - 30%
12.25 - 40%
12.35 - 50%
12.45 - 60%
12.5 - 70%
12.6 - 100

A fully charged that is only about 12V indicates a a problem with the battery - dead / shorted cells, etc. You can always remove the battery and have it tested at Autozone or similar auto parts stores if you're unsure. From the info you've provided - my guess is that the battery is "done"

I hope this was helpful - good luck!

Sounds like one of the wires on the loom might have come undone, just run through the loom, especially all the wires to the ignition.If that fails, looking at the model, could potentially be a CDI failure. Good luck
