    1200 XL PV - Need Help

    Just bought a clean 99 XL 1200 LTD with PV engine that didn't run. The display would say "START" and you could hear a small "click in electrical box, but would not turn over.
    Changed out electrical box that I knew worked properly and then nothing on display and totally dead
    If I bypass box, the starter will turn the motor over. Tried a different display that works properly.

    Is the ski somehow killing the boxes? Is there a ground shorting somewhere?

    Thanks,

    Some places to check is the ground to the starter, at the starter. Make sure the battery has good voltage. You can check all your connecters also.

    Checked all that. When I run a cable straight from battery to starter, it turns the motor over so battery and ground must be good, right?

    Sounds like you also bypassed the switch at the lanyard.

    No Idea

    Yeah, I bypassed switch at lanyard to check if starter/motor would turn over. When hooked up normally, it's totally dead. I took an electric box from a working ski and put it in and nothing. The display doesn't even light up.

    I'm stumped.

    OK, so more than likely, since you changed the box out that the box is not the problem. Take the switch apart and see if any thing is obvious.... like corrosion. Clean up the contacts as best you can and give it a try.

    You can even just bypass the switch if you want.

    Sorry, misread your previous note. Do you have power to your switch?

    Tried my switch on another ski and worked fine, so it's not the switch.

    Tried it again today and display says "start" and I can hear a faint click in the electrical box when I hit the start switch, but that's it. Tried two different batteries, one had 12.9v and the other 12.5v.
    Once, when I hit the start switch, a warning alarm went off because a sensor wasn't connected, but I had been hitting the switch for a while with the sensor not connected.

    Any ideas? Starter relay? I have two spare CDIs and will have those tested in another ski and if they work, I'll try installing them.

    if u hear click noise coming from the box, i could be ur relay ,or cables not on properly.
