I parked my 2015 Roadmaster on the 27th of July Running Fine with no issues. I went out yesterday to start it since I had a phone charger still plugged in, and it would not power up when I pushed on the power but on the tank or the start button. I figured the battery had drained down, so I put a battery tender/charger on it. It says the battery is fully charged and still not power activity, don't even get any activity from the fob when I try to lock it or activate the alarm. Any suggestions

Check the fuse block and connection to the battery terminals. Hopefully there no damage to the VCM

Disconnect the battery and reconnect and tighten. I'm just guessing if your battery charger says it's fully charger it's just a bad connection. All fuses are good?

I would check the battery in your fob... if it is dead you can not make contact with the ignition!

You don't need the fob, enter your pass code. I'm stumped at retightening the battery connections on the battery didn't work. Of course you didn't reverse the connections, right?

No did them one at a time just to hook up the battery tender

You can't get to the battery without moving the VCM. Sure hope that's not the problem because that's $500+. Pretty lousy thinking on Polaris part

I believe your battery is shot. Once they get drained so far, the Battery Tender can't bring it up.
Use a volt meter and measure the voltage in battery. If it is not 12.8 volts, your battery is low.
12.3 volts or lower = battery shot. Before measuring voltage, put a regular charger on it.
Also, the fob batteries, in my experience, last less than a year. I change mine every 6 months.

You are correct, pulled the battery out and put itg on a charger and everything back to normal. Thanks for the help.
