2014 400 4x4 ATV starting problem

Hi all, In preparation for spring riding, I was trying to start my 2014 400 ATV which had been sitting all winter. The battery was charged, it cranked several times, but wouldn't start. While I was trying again, I heard a very loud pop sound coming from I believe my battery area. (It didnt sound like a carburetor backfire) Now when I turn the key on the display panel shows the battery is working, but when I depress the brake to push the start button, the screen goes blank and nothing happens. I checked the fuse at the positive side of the battery and it is good. Is there something else I could check? Any help would be appreciated...

Check all your fuses in the fuse box. Did you use fuel stabilizer?

Put a volt meter on your battery. Check the voltage before trying to crank and again while cranking. The battery may have enough power to light the panel until you energize the starter. The battery may be shot. An internal short in the battery may be what you heard.
