Well I finally figure out how to open the seat manually on my 2019 MP3 500cc sport. I put the charger on it and went back at 5 pm mst and the charger still showing red and then the dash board didn't lite up when I turned it to the on position and plus I notice the code light was showing on the panel. This bike has been nothing but troubles ever since I bought it a year ago and thank god I have a extend warrenty on it. About a 4 months ago they had to replace the battery on it and did the service for it and they said it ran like a champ well yea every 3 weeks I go over and start both bikes and my 09 MP 3 500cc starts up better than my 2019 does. I think i got a lemon and it only has 350 miles on it. I coming so close for them to either replace it or give me my money back on it. I don't know if I can trust it or not any more. I haven't really haven't ridden that much because of the fires and the virus that is going on and I want to ride it when it gets a little cooler. What do you people think I should do with it. I think there some major thing wrong with it, because when I give it the gas it sputters like it wants to stall. It did it many times when I run it for a few mins and then the next day or so it won't start and I hear this beeping sound.

I took the battery to battery plus to have the battery check and it was showing 7.9 on the meter so I left there and he told me he was going check on it to make sure it had enough voltage for everything.

Did the dealer put the right battery in?
Voltage should be 12 + volts.
Have you been riding or has the bike been sitting all summer?
Sitting kills batteries.
Batteries that sit dead may take a charge, but they are dead.

That battery is toast. Replace it and take better care of the next one, or this will get expensive every couple of years.

It's also not a good idea to keep starting up the bike every three weeks if you are not actually going to ride it. It's bad for the engine and bad for the battery. It's way better to make sure it has good oil in the bike and good but low fuel and then just let it stand for a few weeks uninterrupted. Put a battery tender on it and let it stand. It won't come to any harm. If yoiu intend letting it stand for a few months then there are other precautions you need to take. But if it's just a few weeks at a time then no big deal. Folks actually do a lot of harm to their bikes by interfering with them while being stored.
