I was driving the UTV the other day when it simply died. I was using the sprayer which might have drained the 3 year old battery and the stator didn't recharge it. I towed it to my shop and charged the battery . The next morning it cranked first time and I drove it home . I parked it and turned it off . I then tried to crank it and it would only make a weak click noise . I changed the battery and the voltage regulator but it would still only click. I noticed on the digital display that the reverse light was illuminated and would stay illuminated no matter what gear I selected . If I put it in low that light would light but the reverse light stayed on . Same thing for neutral . I shorted the two poles on the starter solenoid with the key on and it cranked up easily and idled fine. You could put it in reverse and it would move backwards and you could put it in low and it would drive forward. The entire time the reverse light stayed on . I checked the fuses and they all looked good . So lets say I get a new started solenoid . If I replace it and it now starts with the key what is the issue with the reverse light . Is it harmful? What else needs to be done to correct ? Any ideas out there.
Some time ago unit stalled going uphill towing a small motorcycle. Some smoke and smell of rubber burning. Removed belt and it looked ok but the case area was grimy with grease-like sludge. Cleaned it all out and installed new belt and front variator pulley assembly. Within a few minutes of running it was destroyed in pieces—this was low speed but uphill, with jerking/stuttering.
I then opened it up and removed the belt remains, but reinstalled the old belt. It runs again but again has the stuttering/jerking when accelerating from stop, or when slowing down to about 1-2mph…changed transaxle fluid and no difference.
I'm having a problem with my Hisun E1 and it's not charging. There is a flashing red light on the charging section of the console and the error code "038.E" on the charger itself (underneath). Does anyone know what the code means or what the problem might be?
Any help would be much appreciated!

At 185 hours while do a little riding noticed using a little more fuel that the trip should have taken and running a little rough. Thought it might be time to clean the air filter.
I while back, I bought a filter kit for another sxs I had but never installed. I was going to do the snorkel thing. Anyway, while I was as cleaning the air filter for the Axis 500. I mocked up this filter kit and wanted to know if anyone could give a reason why this wouldn't work.
I plan on removing the air box completely. Moving the PCV valve hose to the side of the large hose going to the throttle body instead of the way it is now. Now it connects to the air box. There is already a hole in that hose and it just has a 90° fitting on it and then a plug.
Then route some pipe thru the tunnel that the front drive shaft uses. Then up under the hood and mount the new filter there. I even bought a hood scoop to use. See pics below.
Here is the way it is from the factory.
Notice the hose plugged into the top of the air box. That is for the PCV valve. It provides suction for the crankcase to keep from blowing seals. You can't see in the pic, but there is a hose that connects to the crank case. That hose connects to a box with 2 hoses coming off. One of those hoses goes down to under the sxs to let any oil that is sucked up drip on the ground. The other hose connects to the air box.
Here is the passenger side of the air box. Notice the 90° nipple on the large hose running between the air box and the throttle body.
Here is a pic of the kit I got off Amazon.
Here are some pics with the air box removed, PCV hose relocated, and the hose coming up into the hood area thru the tunnel that the front drive shaft uses.
I will probably have to relocate the radiator overflow jug. I know I will probably have to use solid pipe instead of that plastic flex stuff. And will have to keep it clear of the drive shaft. The only issue I see it the air coming in thru the PVC hose is not filtered. It also could cause more suction on the crankcase and cause the sxs to use some oil. Those little square boxes on top to the throttle hose are empty. I may have to connect the PCV hose to that and add a filter in that square box.
But other than that. Does anyone know of any reason this shouldn't work?
Once I get it installed I can close off the holes in the engine cover that is currently uses by the air box. That will help keep noise and heat out of the cab in the summer.
Third voltage regulator on this unit. Purchased from Lowes in FEB of 2022.
At that time, I was not using a battery tender. Garage kept and would start it up and use around the yard and weekends at the hunt club property. While using in the yard, let it idle while collecting leaves, etc. while driving. unit cut off. Jumped started unit and recharged battery and checked for output voltage reading at battery. 12.3 and no change at 1k rpms. on 6/13/22 took unit to Authorized Dealer for 1st oil and filter change/ lube job along with possible Warranty Claim Work for a no charging issue. Dealer checked Battery which was, ok and replaced voltage regulator. (Listed action not part number on invoice ($140 for part). Dealer absorbed warranty claim cost until HISUN would pay the dealer. All was well.
10/19/22: previous weekend at the hunting property, the damn thing would not re-start......deep in the woods...... luckily, I had brought a battery source to jump if needed. This saved me. when back home ordered a regulator from eBay and replaced the faulty one that was the original one. Found this with additional investigating and pics taken prior to the dealer having the unit for the issue.
7/9/23: well seems the unit is need of another rectifier. Not charging the battery. had not been using a battery tender but will use it going forward. seems if the battery goes down the charging system will not bring it back, the charging system is there to maintain the battery voltage.
I usually do not run the stock light during the day and rarely use the unit at night. Did add a 32" LED light bar, but have it switched and have rarely used that up to now. When I replaced the second regulator and checked the voltage output, it was showing 14.0 volts at 1K RPMs and ran well. I am hoping the third one will be a charm and that using a batter tender will keep it all happy and work as intended.
Please feel free to comment, add to this string or give advice from your experience in this area. I am using a downloaded manual for the HISUN 700
