    Battery not charging after new rectifier installed

    Hope someone can help with this one. I put a new rectifier into my 2005 GTI with the 717 motor. Everything seemed fine for a few days. The battery drained somehow and after charging, the ski started no problem. When I put the meter on the battery with the ski running, it reads 12.5 volts and just stays there when revving it up, so I know it's not charging. Any ideas as to what the problem could be? New stator maybe? How can I check the functioning of the stator? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

    to test the stator - unplug the yellow wires going to the rectifier - test for countinuity to engine ground on the engine side of the wiring - should show an open circuit or not grounded..
    Now test for resistance between any two yellow wires - should show resistance of 1 ohm or less..

    I hope the rectifer you installed was not an aftermarket one...

    Yes, it was an aftermarket unit. What happens when I swap out the stator? Will the rectifier follow soon afterwards? It does need a new stator, by the way. Thanks for your advice. Do you have an idea how long the aftermarket rectifiers work?

    so you tested the stator and it is bad?? Aftermarket rectifiers just do not hold up well.. The rectifer will not damage a new stator, just beware that if the rectifier goes bad, replace it with an OEM one..
