An incorrectly routed battery cable can contact the prop shaft

Polaris Industries of Medina, Minn., is recalling about 1,200 model year 2022 RZR Pro R 4 Premium and RZR Pro R 4 Ultimate recreational off-road vehicles.

An incorrectly routed battery cable can contact the prop shaft during use. This can result in an electrical short that increases the risk of a fire.

The firm has received one report of a vehicle losing power after start up. No injuries or fires have been reported.

This recall involves certain VINs of model year 2022 RZR Pro R 4 Premium and Ultimate vehicles. The recalled vehicles were sold in black, blue, and lime in a four-seat configuration.

POLARIS is stamped on the front grille and POLARIS and RZR are printed on the sides of the vehicles. The model name is also printed on the side of the chassis. The VIN is located on the vehicle’s frame in the left rear wheel well.

The off-road vehicles, manufactured in Mexico, were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from May 2021, through April 2022, for between $39,000 and $45,000.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair. The dealer will re-route the battery cable and, if needed, replace it free of charge.

Polaris has notified consumers to stop riding the vehicles and is contacting registered owners directly to provide more details about the repair.

Consumers may contact Polaris online or by phone at (800) 765-2747 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (CT) Monday through Friday to check if their vehicle identification number (VIN) is included in any recalls.
