    02 Virage I No Start

    Hello guys! Wow - It looks like there IS an active forum out there for Polaris ski's (Right here!)!

    I have an 02 Virage I - 800. Two weeks ago I was riding the ski and it just quit. I have since learned it does not have any spark ...

    I have checked and I am not getting any power at the coils when I am turning the engine over.

    Also I am not getting any power at the crank sensor . . .

    The engine will turn over just fine.

    Can someone give me some suggestions as to where to start to diagnose the problem ... I am concerned my EMM has taking a trip to the dark side.

    The battery is also new and strong.

    Welcome to the Hulk

    Best place on the Internet for Polaris PWC support!

    Click below for the Service Manual, and other useful info

    There are some tests you can do to narrow down the probable problem cause.

    Check the Reset breakers and fuses. Reset buttons are somewhere near the battery, while the fuses are inside an electrical box, or hidden inside a splice connector in the wiring.

    Find a place to connect your meter to the White/Red wires. When the engine is cranking, the voltage should jump to over 20 volts. I suspect you will find that the voltage is much lower than 20 volts while cranking.

    The MFI display does a full scale speedometer needle sweep when it 'wakes up' from sleep mode. After sitting for five minutes with no activity the MFI display will go into sleep mode.

    If you crank the engine after letting it sit quietly for more than five minutes, without touching any other MFI buttons, does the MFI 'wake up", or does it continue to sleep while the engine cranks?

    How to read Polaris Ficht EMM trouble codes without special software or a computer

    Look in the above thread, and make the Ficht EMM Service diagnostic connector, using a piece of bent wire

    Unplug the 8-pin connector from the EMM module, and insert the jumper wire into pins 1 and 7. Crank the engine, and see if you now have spark.

    Let us know what you find, and we can go from there

    Ok! I jumped it and there is spark... It isn't the greatest - However I didnt really crank on it because its almost 1am and I am not sure if the neighbors would like me lighting this thing off this late!

    Also - My speedo does come out of sleep mode and do a full sweep. and the red warning light flashes.

    What about these tests?

    Put the 8-pin plug back into the EMM, make sure the lanyard is in place.

    Check the Reset breakers and fuses. Reset buttons are somewhere near the battery, while the fuses are inside an electrical box, or hidden inside a splice connector in the wiring.

    Find a place to connect your meter to the White/Red wires. When the engine is cranking, the White/Red voltage should jump to over 20 volts.

    I suspect you will find that the voltage is much lower than 20 volts while cranking.

    The reset breakers have been reset. I am having a difficult time finding fuses - However I am sure they are there I just have to find them!!?

    I left my volt meter at the shop so I will check voltage in the morning -

    Does this info give you any indication as to what might be going on with her?

    Thank you so much for your help...

    Here is where the fuses are on my 2002 Virage TXi (three cylinder engine).

    I re-arranged the splice/connector mounting and added better labels.

    OK... here is what I have.

    Going to a r/w wire turning the engine over I am getting 7.3v.

    Also - I remeasured the power at the coil turning the engine over and I am getting .35 volts.

    I have gone all over this (Virage I) and I cannot find any fuses. I am finding all the factory hook up for computer diag - However I am not finding one darn fuse. Reset buttons have been reset - They are good.

    I am assuming this is a stator - yes/no?

    Thank you-

    Trey!
