    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.

    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
