About a month ago i fitted a motoworks exhaust system and EFI controller to my DS-450 and it was all going good, i left the quad for around 2 weeks over xmas and never started it, went out to start it and when i turned the key the neutral light came on but the Engine management light flickered on and off then it went out completely and the neutral light stayed on.

There is nothing at all (no turn over) if you hit the starter and if you switch it to lights position it makes a groaning noise. I am thinking maybe i have got a bad earth or from the efi controller or maybe even the plug has got a bad connection where it goes into the injector.

Has anyone came across this? if not i'll be taking it down tomorrow to have a better look

Charge the battery and try again.

remove the fuel controller and try again...if it starts, the problem is the fuel controller.

if it doesnt, make a trip to the dealer and get them to plug it into BUDS (BRP diag. software) and it will tell you straight up what it wrong

Well i feel stupid now, i was 100 percent sure that it was a 6v battery and i was getting the fully charged signal from my charger, i took the battery out and checked it up online and it is actually a 12v, battery was flat. Problem solved.

For those of you that live in the winter climates, when it is really cold like it is up hear in Canada, try and keep your storage area either heated or a trickle charger on your battery. Had my Practicce LTR out 2 days ago riding, then it got cold in the shop for 2 days... I mean really cold (-18 F) and then the batt. was dead.. doing the same thing.... I have noticed that compared to stock programmer map, the PCIII are a little tougher to start in the cold as well.
