Hello peeps..

I have a 2016 sportsman 570. My wife took it for a drive, putting park and shut off. After trying to start, crank but no start, she gave up. Codes are showing as on pics.
I did replace spark plug. Battery reads 12.1 and I do hear the pump on when I turn key to run. Where can I go from here and what to check. Thanks

Battery # sounds a little low. Does it turn over strong or just slowly chugging over?

It turns over (seems) normally. Did you see the codes in the pics? I was thinking of just replacing the battery to see what happens. The battery that's in bow was the factory one when I bought it 3yrs ago.

The first code is battery voltage low and the second one is for your power steering because of the low voltage. Put a booster pack on it or charge the battery. After the machine is running verify charging voltage is above 14v.

Ok Jason I'll try that this weekend. Thanks for the code breakdown. I think I'll just buy a battery too in case.

Ok peeps. I did install a new battery. It turns over and starts. It barely idles for bout 20 to 40 secs then dies. I tried to speed up throttle but that just immediately kills the engine. I clean the throttle body. I check the oil and it's good think it could be a low oil. Where and what can I try next?

I would check the stop/run/stop wiring and make sure its not partially grounding the ignition circuit.

Try monitoring the voltage when you do get it started. You could try to unplug the voltage regulator from the stator.
I had a voltage regulator fail and it cause all kinds of weird running problems.

The voltage regulator plugs in on the left hand side the plug is mounted on the motor mount. You will see a plug with 3 yellow wires that go run to the engine (stator). The other side has 3 yellow wire running to the front (to voltage regulator). You should be able to easily unplug it there.

Where did you go to figure out the codes? Good info.

Have a look in your owners manual. It's all in there plus a table showing what all of the codes mean.

It's in the owners manual.

Also Polaris codes are pretty general across all their brands.
