The magneto is probably bad if all of the wiring is good.

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?


battery is being drained as it operates and not taking charge

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

Probably the ECM, if you have a good, charged battery, spark plug, wiring is not damaged, and kill switches are in "run".
