    Newbie Question

    I recently purchased two 2002 Polaris Genisis skis. They both need a few parts. Can anyone recomend a source for obtaining a manual and parts online?

    Are these fuel injected or carburetor engines?

    Well then, update your Profile

    Have you already diagnosed the problems, and know what you need to do to get them running properly?

    Just started the diagnosis process. Had to spend most of the afternoon cleaning as the skis had been setting outside for the last year and a half. Drained the old gas out of the sytem, replaced the plugs and I am currently charging the battery as it was completely dead. We will see where it stands tomorrow morning.

    Thanks,

    Be aware that Polaris PWC really like a strong battery.

    If you have any doubts about the strength of the battery, even after charging, get a new battery. It might save you a lot of diagnostic time chasing your tail with a weak battery.

    A factory sealed AGM type battery is my recommendation.

    I got a new battery and installed new plugs. All of the electronics seem to turn on ok. However, the engine will not start. It seems that I am not getting fuel to the engine. I do not see any fuel flowing through the in-line fulel filter. The engine will breifly turn over if I shoot in a little starter fluid. Therefore, I think the electronics are ok. I also checked the electric connection to the injectors at this seems to be ok. I am getting voltage at the connection.

    Does anyone have suggestions as to what to check next?

    THanks,
    Jeff

    A stock Ficht engine does not have an external fuel filter. The stock fuel filter is integral with the electric fuel pump, in the bottom of the fuel tank.

    If you have an external fuel filter, someone has added one. Why? Perhaps they have had problems with the fuel pump in the past

    Check for fuel pressure when cranking the engine. There is a pressure test fitting at the schrader valve tee on the return fuel line. Pressure should jump up to over 20PSI as soon as the engine starts cranking.

    You can manually power up the fuel pump by grounding the Brown wire that connects to the fuel pump. The fuel pump is always connected to battery power through a circuit breaker. The Brown wire is switched to ground by the EMM when the EMM wants to run the fuel pump.

    Also check the fuel pump circuit breaker (Reset push button). There are two on the 2002 Genesis. One is just for the fuel pump, the other is for everything else.

    The fuel pump is powered by a Red/White wire from the 15 Amp Reset button circuit breaker.

    I tried shorting the brown wire and could here a click but the pump did not seem to run. I pulled the whole gas tank insert (with pump) out of my second ski. Now when I short the brown wire the system fills with gas. However, the ski still does not want to start. I do not have a fuel pressure guage. However, now that I have switch the pump, fuel does spray out of the pressure fitting when pressed. I will have to go buy a pressure gauge to see what the actual pressure in the system is when starting.

    I have not tried the reset buttons. I will look into that next.

    Thanks,
    Jeff
