Re: battery keeps dying?

Do you have any aftermarket lights, sound system, winch, etc? Just asking because there could be some wiring done wrong and that is where your drain is coming from.

Re: battery keeps dying?

Have you checked your charging system?

That wont fix the problem due to the fact that your charging system is not big enough to run all that stuff and all you are doing is upping the capacity and not the replenishment of the battery. install a battery maintainer when the UTV is not in use....

Re: battery keeps dying?

I had the same problem when i was running a winch and lights plowing all at the same time it would kill the battery so i put in a bigger battery and through a battery tender on it when not in use it has worked great so far.


It'll buff out..
