    Check engine light

    I have a 2003 sportster 4tec, after about 15 min. of running the check engine light comes on and it cuts back to 5000 rpm, none of the other lights come on, if I unplug the lanyard it resets and runs fine for about another 15 mins. any ideas, I baught it used about 4 weeks ago and it spent 3 weeks in the shop, it had severe salt water damage, the ride plate and complete pump were replaced, it was pushing antifreeze out of the surge tank, they found a bad head gasket that was also replaced, I know that sounds like alot but I only paid $2000.00 for it, I called thew dealer back and they said they had to hook up the scanner, the problem is they are 45 mins. away, trying to avoid running back and fourth to the dealer

    Thanks David N

    you have no choice but to go back to the dealer to have it scanned with the budds system scanner. Only the sea doo dealers have the software to retrieve the trouble codes in your boats computer.

    For sure have it scanned for codes but if nothing shows up then go ahead and replace the oil pressure sending unit. Been there done that....
