2010 Sportsman 400 Dead Battery

Purchased a Sportsman last fall and it has sat from November until now. The key was out but the switch was left to run. The battery is completely dead. When I turn the key on nothin happens. When I hook up the battery tender (I know I should have used it all winter) it blinks telling me that the battery is too low to charge. I'm hooking it up to the wires that are in the front compartment. Is there any way to bring it back to life?

Also when I tried to jump it with another ATV, it turns over but won't start.

Actually, I think its a 2011 if that makes a difference.

Does it have any acid or water in it, if not try filling it but Id say its junk. I ride mine atleast 3 times per week and within 10 months my was junk as well. Polaris sends them out with a cheapo battery. Go get a good one for it and be done. 50 bucks or so and your good to go

Actually, it makes a big difference. If you have a 2010, it's on the mid-size Hawkeye chassis and the battery replacement is your worst nightmare. If you have a 2011, it's on the full size chassis with the Sportsman 500's and such. The 2010 came with an AGM battery that's sealed and has no liquid to deal with. And, if you have a 2010, be sure and get another AGM battery and take care of it as dealing with the battery is something you'll want to do as infrequently as possible. - MarkC
