Code for low 12 volts again....
I think its 0562 ....Bottom line is that its for low 12 volts....I have a brand new battery....charged and everything but the code will not go away and will beep and the red warning light flashes....Already checked the fuses....Can it be the rectifier?

Possible rectifier problem
I had the same problem on my GTX RFI, im no expert but i did a little research and the rectifier tends to be a big problem (especially if you have tried jumpstarting a low battery whilst still in the ski) as this can cause a surge to the rectifier damaging the diodes therefore it is unable to rectify the sine-wave properly for the current back to the battery so won't be charging your battery. The best way to check if your battery is being re-charged when running is to use a multimeter to measure the voltage accross the battery terminals whilst running the ski and it should be around 14volts or if its not seeing a charge it will only read 12 or low 13volts.
I was getting hight 12v therefore replaced the rectifier and all is good.
Hope this helps!

Check the rectifier fuse. mine was loose.

The fuses where checked by a well respected SD mechanic and they were ok. He was the one that told me the rectifier was bad....Or with my luck, the stator or something like that in/close to the flywheel...

I have connected another rectifier and the code is still there and the red light still flashes...This was on the trailer....no water testing as I dont want to stay stranded alone!

There ´s 2 Main Fuses W\ Red Cables....i Think It´s The Top One...look For Corrosion...or Burned Plastic Around The Fuse

Check the stator by pulling the connector with the 3 yellow wires at the rectifier/regulator. Check for continuity between between all 3 wires with an ohmeter, should show close to 0 ohms. Then check between any of the 3 terminals and engine ground, should show open.
