    09 260X Not charging

    After starting the engine a few secs.. the BATT signal with the buzzer comes on.

    After running for a bit.. battery goes dead.

    What is fastest and simplest way to diagnose before sending it to shop.

    Check the 3 lead stator coil connection if it's tight, unplug and check for corrosion,check the regulator connection for corrosion also, if everything look fine the next step is to test with multimeter,if your mechanictly wise you can do the test yourself, if not let the shop do it.

    Magneto Output Voltage •Remove:
    Seat (see Seat Removal in the Hull/Engine Hood chapter)
    Air Filter with Duct (see Air Filter Removal in the Fuel
    System chapter) •Disconnect the 3-pin stator coil leads connector [A].
    •With the hand tester [A] check the magneto output (in
    circuit) according to the following table with the engine
    running at approximately 3 000 rpm.
    WARNING
    To avoid electrical shock, do not perform this test
    with the watercraft in the water.

    Magneto Output Voltage
    Connections
    Meter Setting
    Meter (+) to Meter (–) to
    Standard Value
    250 V AC White lead White lead 48 ∼ 72 V
    If the magneto output voltage is correct, check the regulator
    according to the regulator test procedure.
    If the magneto output voltage is low, check the stator coil
    resistance with a multimeter according to the following
    table.
    Stator Coil Resistance Test
    Connections
    Meter Setting
    Meter (+) to Meter (–) to
    Standard Value
    R × 1 Ω White lead White lead 0.432 ∼ 0.648 Ω
    If the coil has normal resistance, but the voltage check
    shows the charging system to be defective, then the
    permanent magnets in the flywheel have probably weakened

    how do you know its not charging? im guessing its more like a stuffed battery (dropped cell) the electronics needs a constant 12v to function and run the coils. i would get the battery load tested.

    1st easy thing to do is put a multi meter across the battary terminals with engine off what does it read ?

    then start it up and see what it says .......... should be around 13.0+volts if charging correctly

    if not you got problems

    1st rule of testing
    KISS

    Keep
    It
    Simple
    Stupid

    then check your battery

    then start worring about something else if all else fails

    zackly, accurately check out the snag with the proper tool. Charging 14-15 volts at a decently charged battery. 50-70VAC at the stator windings. Download the manual and get a multimeter.
