Your dealer is the best choice. If there is a problem and you cleared it without fixing the underlying reason for the code it may come back again. Wish I had a better suggestion but the dealer is your best choice for now hope they can isolate the original problem and permanently fix it.
Just disappeared again. came on on 1st crank on 3 different days. went away again this morning. Quick ride around the yard and still gone. might be back when i get home who knows. Typical dealer response. WE'RE BACKED UP AT LEAST 2 or 3 MONTHS. got ride of a polaris so i wouldnt have these kind of problems anymore.
Good thought 1HasBeen, mine will do funny things if the battery is not fully charged. Thunderchicken, worth a trip to AutoZone to have them check it out. At least that would eliminate one possible cause.
If you can use an old-school load tester, even better. More than once I had someone insist that O'Reilly, Autozone, etc. had checked their battery as OK with a fancy electronic tester, but it would fail on our conventional tester. Good opportunity to verify connection, too.
Good point 1HasBeen, if the battery will not hold the load it may show 13 volts but as soon as a load is placed on it -- drop like a rock. I would be so happy if that was Thunderchicken,s problem. No fun to sit and wait for the dealer and hope they have top quality mechanics. Thunderchicken we are all pulling for you!
in my opinion - since dealer is months away from looking at.......
-go over every electrical connector and connection - especially grounds
-check all ecm connectors and similar are tight
-if you have a buddy with a sxs - swap batteries for a couple of days and buy Em a case of beer
-take battery and get tested at autozone of somewhere similar
-go over connections at the battery specifically - i have worked on many machines that would shut off hot, run like crap, throw codes all day long because a battery connection came loose or was never really tight
i agree you paid for this to be taken care of but it is what it is - maybe you will stumble across a problem
