Is it still giving you trouble or just the one time? You can enter your VIN and see if the machine is under recall.

Here is the actual recall:

Back then, there were several updates being the PS was a new product in 2010. I seem to remember there was a serial # on the PS unit that had to be met for the recall as not all were affected. Starting in 2012, BRP installed a heat shield by the electric motor to protect it from heat.

Some things you can also check, be sure your battery wires are tight. There is also a plug on the stator that was known to fail over time. It's under the seat below the heat shield.

Stickers should be in stock around the start of 2014. Anyone who has stickers ordered will get them as soon as we get them in. Thanks for your patience.
