Lt80 starting problem

Postby Cs111 » Fri Jun 30, 2017 10:14 pm

Hi all btw. Hope to be on here for info and learning.
I Recently picked up a lt80 which had a new battery fitted in the past few weeks
The quad needs to be jump started if left over night as it seems to lose charge. The battery has been tested and is fine.
Once started and idling for a couple of minutes or driven it will restart no problem , but as I said it won't start the following day if not driven for 12-24 hours
It will turn over, though slowly, if not driven

Any ideas what the problem could be ( I'm not mechanically minded )

Thanks

Welcome Cs111. Sounds like you have a Parasitic discharge!!!! No need for a clinic visit though lol. Just watch the video below and start testing or just make sure you disconnect the battery after each time you finish playing.

Watch "How To Perform a Parasitic Draw Test - EricTheCarGuy" on YouTube

Thanks. Just watched the video
Do you know where the fuses are on the lt80
The only one I see is under the seat beside the battery , no idea what that is even for
