205 Arctic cat 500 4x4 starts and dies

Hello all
I have a 05 400 and having a problem with keeping it running. It will start and run about 20 sec and then dies. Shut the key off and right back on, starts right back up for another 20 sec. If you start and have the key switch on for headlights runs great. After looking through the schematic i cant seem to find any reason for this to be happening.

Any help would be great.

Thanks
Nate

Check the voltage at the battery when it is running. Sounds like your vr/rectifier.

Thanks for the help. After checking the voltage I found out that the ECM shuts off at 19 volts. Pulled the rectifier and found it as melted on the back. Replaced it and now runs great.

Good to hear, the VR/Rectifier is a common issue. You have a CDI not an ecm
