  • New ZTR battery not charging

    I have only 8 hours on my brand new Ferris ZTR and today it wouldn't start. I noticed it sounded like it was having a hard time turning over when starting and after turning it on and off over the course of a few yards it got progressively worse until it wouldn't start at all. I jumped it off with my truck and it ran fine. Let it run for about 20 minutes and battery held no charge.Is there anything that I could have done to drain battery? I am new to using these machines but I take the key out when i am not on the machine always and don't know of anything that would drain the battery. I'm taking to the dealer tomorrow if I can't get this figured out. Very frustrating considering how much those machines are to have a breakdown that early.

      it could be any number of things ,a loose connection ,bad battery ,fuse ,alternator ,to name a few .The dealer should have you back running in no time .

              I have the same issue with one of my ztrs. Gonna check the voltage regulator and fuses when I get a chance.

                When you can't start it and check the voltage output at the battery, what's the best way to see if the voltage regulator is bad when it won't start?
