Ok. something strange has been happening to my Rebel lately:
I turn the key, headlight on, and, when I push the start button I hear a "puff" and my battery is completely drained ( or so it seems).
I charge it, and the moment I try to start the bike, the same "Puff" followed by a completely discharged battery.
If I push-start the bike, the battery remains charged. When I ride, it seems like it will not charge, not even the horn will work, I come homeback with an empty battery.....but,( and here comes the really strange part):
Couple days ago I park it, dead battery, contact is on, head tail/light are turned on but (obviously) not lit, not one bit.
10 min later,all by itself: all is good! Headlight is bright, as well as the tail light, bike e-starts without hesitation, and so it has been for 2 days, untill this morning: Pushed the start button, I hear the dreaded "puff" and...we're dead again
Any idea on what the hell is going on?
