low 12 volt
How long should the battery last that is the original battery that comes with the rxp.My rxp was showing low 12 volt and the red caution light on the dash was blinking.

ur working on your 4th season on an 04 battery... i would get a new battery first jsut because it's about that time... if the problem persists, go pick up a new voltage regulator... it's gonna be a close one which will be more expensive, the battery or the regulator

The battery is $104 and the voltage regulator is $140 .I was thinking on just buying both,its the original battery, so if I just replace the battery and the regulatator was bad it wouldn't take long at all to drain the battery,am I right and would the engine start running a little funny.

Danny,it was flashing when I would start it and show low 12 volt and the red light would not stop flashing.

First of all for me your battery is out of order because usually it works correctly 2 seasons... - And I hope you don't have the same problem I had on mine...(the same model...) I would talk about the electric bundle...But Usually, BRP takes it in warranty... - My '04 RXP had the same trouble "low 12 volt" on the dash with the buzzer on...

I didn't have a buzzer go off,just the red light and low 12 volt flashing.It also was getting a little slugish when I'd go to crank it up.

BuddyDOOOO from houuuummmaa! What's up bro? I agree the babysitter picker-upper on this one. I replaced mine after 2 years with the same issues you are having, runs fine to this day, even with the extra pimp'n atwood blower on it!

Whatever u do don't give 104 bucks for a battery. Look in the phone book for a battery store. They easy to find.,... just look under B. Usually you can find a store that sells nothing but batteries and discount. Even still, the battery will be expensive. I got mine for 75 bucks. Walmart has em I think. They those 30cbl or something, right? Last time I checked, walmart had one for about 40 or so
