That was weird!!!!

So here's the story.

My bike sat stationary not being used for about 5-6 weeks while I was getting light bar warranty work done to it. I get the bike back, it starts right up and drives fine. I get home and as I'm unloading it, I notice my accessory switches don't have the led backlights working like normal, my rock lights wouldn't come on and my winch wouldn't work. I called the shop back after checking the fuses and told them I would be bringing it back in a few days when I had time. I parked in the garage and hooked up a trickle charger to it. I do have a dual battery (odyssey) kit installed so it took 3 days to show it was fully charged. I went to load it back on the trailer and everything worked perfectly. Would a low charge on the batteries have caused these issues???? Haven't been able to get a clear answer yet.

Yes. LED lights will not come on if voltage is too low.

Takes good power to engage the winch contractor. Could have a bad cell in battery also. If things work after charging the batteries, then a test of battery under load sounds like a good idea. Use volt meter to get reading of battery sitting, start engine and test. Does everything work? Watch battery voltage as you turn on lights etc. Also good ideal to check battery connections and main grounds to frame.

Did they leave the machine out in the weather?

It might be lonely at the top, but it's a bitch at the bottom.

Re: That was weird!!!!

Okay I know this is a little off topic but I just have to ask as I see the term "bike" used from time on the internet when talking about side by sides and UTV's. I've never heard this term in our area, so I have to ask, why do some people use this term? No disrespect at all, I'm just truly curious, LOL

Re: That was weird!!!!

Quads were called bikes for years and no one complained or cared. You can call them whatever you want. You paid for it, go for it.

Well that would be a new one too. Never heard a quad, UTV or anything with four wheels ever been referred to as "bike" which we all know is short for bicycle, BI meaning two.........Again, I just think it's kinda comical is all, no disrespect, just having a little fun and posing a question.

Yea! Some get hung up on it and think it is some kind of a crime. They take it way to serious. This sport is about fun. If someone wants to call them a bike, big deal.

Motorcyles are not bikes either. Bike is short for bicycle. A human powered two wheel narrow seat.
