Can't Get into Parts Catalog - Where is Voltage Regulator?
I can't get into the BRP online parts catalog - no parts tree comes up at all, so I can't view the electrical system.
I am trying to diagnos a "12V Low Warning" signal that I keep getting while the engine is running - after the course of a day, the ski runs perfectly fine....no issues, but at the end of the day, if I shut the ski down, it may or may not start - assuming this is either the magneto not charging the battery properly while the ski is running, or the voltage regulator not controlling where the voltage goes (if that is in fact what it does).
I have an extra magneto already, but I want to start with the LEAST invasive part - but don't know where to look.
Can you help??
1. Ranger - brand new battery, fully regenerated, and then charged. Tried it on two batteries - its not a battery issue, it's a charging or voltage issue.
2. It's a GTX 4-TEC/SC.

try putting the battery on a trickle charger until its charged and then ride it for a little to see if you still get the warning.

The rectifier is located behind the panel in the front storage compartment.
Check the connector to be sure it's snapped together.
We had a 12v low warning on our GTXsc, tested the charging output, which was not enough to charge the battery, purchased a new rectifier and when I went to remove the connector, it came apart without any force, the clip was defective from the factory and finally worked loose.
We zip tied it together and problem solved.
New rectifier available!!

Ummm, maybe that masive Jensen stereo system is sucking the life out of your battery!

IF you have an Amplifier its going to suck the life out of you battery in no time.. (amps X Volts = Watts) figure the amphours of your battery divide in half to make it live longer. Then divide the watts of your out put and volts and come up with amps ect ect ect.. The Rectifier is on the airbox in the front of the ski.. The electrical system isnt made for anything but makeing the ski run and start
