Is this an acid batter? If so you may need to add water to the appropriate levels for it to hold a charge after you put it on a trickle charger. Otherwise, I would say the battery is dead and you need to replace. Good luck!

My ignition went out on the steering column on my 1996 buick roadmaster, so my mechanic bypassed it and put in a switch and push button start, but the problem is by battery will not hold a charge,


So what does your mechanic think is wrong ? Battery dies overnight while sitting or when driving the battery goes dead ? Two different problems . Going dead overnight means there is a parasitic drain on the battery . ( something is staying on ) Going dead while driving means the alternator isn't charging the battery .

My 2000 plate r6 starts fine (had new battery and 2nd hand regulatoor) charges at over 14vs went out to day after riding for 20 mins the dials flashed and the bike cut out and wont start like the batterys...


recheck all the battery and wire connections, take the volt meter with you next ride, to check the bat voltage if it stops again.
The stator can develop a layer short, which can be intermittant due to heat and vibration.

Electrical problem


It is probably the battery, as it does charge up, means the regulator is working, but wont hold the charge overnight means battery.
If you ride it when the battery completely dies and shorts out, this may damage the regulator\rectifier, so make sure it has a good battery.

Ps3 controller wont work unless hooked up to the system


Not sure if this is the same as my issue but worth a try anyway. I had tried 2 duashock 3 controllers with our 80GB system. Neither would work unless plugged in. Reset, left plugged in for hours, nothing worked. Tried a different USB cable and worked right away. I let if charge for a few minutes and unplugged it, still worked. I did notice that when I was using the first USB cable that when I checked status of the controller (charge, controller assignment, etc) it had a "-" instead of showing a charging animation. Hope this helps.
