Hi everyone, I have sportsman that dies after idling about 30 seconds. When this happens, it loses power to everything. No Lights, nothing to the ignition or the console. After a couple of minutes, it wakes back up and is fine. Until it goes back to idle. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Ron

check the battery cables are good and tight. test the battery voltage, should be between 12.6-13vdc. then test the battery voltage with the machine running @3,000rpm, should read 13.5vdc-14.5vdc.

Thanks, I'll give it a shot, I do know that the positive cable was loose. This all a learning experience.
