    Kill switch.Valet, Lo-jac,Ski alarms.

    Has anyone installed or used or is using, an alarm or anti-theft device on thier ski-s? A hidden kill switch would be nice to have when leaving the dock to get a pop or whatewer... Skis get stolen instantly and at 60 mph ,good luck catching them..An car alarm would be neat too.
    That would actually double as a way of siginaling people when in trouble(you know how loud they are! ) lol..

    I have one of these installed on the MSX 140;
    Nautilus Battery Guard

    I don't use it for the 'battery guard' feature, but I do use the Remote key fob to lock and unlock the starter motor. Press the lock button, and the starter solenoid no longer cranks the engine. Press unlock on the remote, and the starter works again

    There is a manual over-ride mode, just in case you lose the fob or it doesn't work. You won't be stranded on the water.

    If you can find a way to fit the MFI type display from a Virage or Genesis, they have a built in security feature. Enter the 4 digit lock code, and the engine won't crank until you re-enter the unlock code.

    Others have wired in a keyswitch, or just a hidden toggle switch somewhere. Anything you install electrically must not only be water proof, but also ignition proof, to avoid the risk of explosion.

    I was thinking more like a kill switch hidden somewhere. maybe a code on it like 3 up 2 down to turn it on. Something easy but safe n reliable.

    put a car alarm in and someone attempts to steal the ski BOOOM the gas vapors inside ignite and theres your real alarm.


    Generally when customers ask me to do a security system inside I will hide a toggle switch up in the wet/dry storage compartmant. and just run the wires to the silenoid. I also buy switches that have rubber boots on the back and electrical tape them just in case ya know

    For safety, any switch installed inside the hull of a PWC needs to be not only Marine grade, but also ignition/explosion proof rated. That means the switch will not create a spark or fume ignition hazard, even when directly exposed to gasoline vapors inside the hull.

    The wire connections to the switch also need to be completely sealed. Again, not just to keep water out, but to prevent fumes from being ignited should one of the wire connections create a spark.

    And of course everything must be well mounted to resist vibration and loosening over time.

    I brought a MSX 140 with this ignition lock but never asked the code as it was unlocked. I would like to use it now but cant get a hold of the old owner and i don't want to play with it in case I lock myself out. Is there a standard pin that any one knows of

    Which one do you have on there?

    I might have instructions for the six button combination lock pad here somewhere. Been a while since I last played with it.
