    01 Polaris Virage TX

    hey all, im new to the site but ive been browsing some old post and looks like this is the place to be for PWC's

    my pwc keeps dying when in operation. can anyone help?
    it"ll be fine for the fist 10 min or so then the speedo will go ape and the screen will black out. the engine loses power for a second then jumps back in. i checked the ground and theres a new battery in it. all the connections look to be fine.

    any suggestions?

    thanks guys.

    Welcome to the Hulk

    You should actually remove the battery ground cable from the engine. Visual inspection is not enough.

    Clean the cable end, the spot on the engine where it contacts, the bolt threads, and the engine block hole threads. Everything should be clean metal. Then re-assemble.

    Do the same for the battery ends of both battery cables cables.

    Also remove and clean the start solenoid end of the red battery cable, and the smaller red wire on the same solenoid stud.

    Open the electrical box, and check for corrosion or signs of moisture. Should be clean and dry inside.

    Id also like to say WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!

    Be sure your boats charging system is in proper working order. It's possible you're not charging the battery while under way.

    Put your multi-meter on the battery posts.

    As soon as the engine starts, the battery voltage should move up to about 14.0 to 14.5 volts, and stay fairly stable as engine RPM changes.

    If the voltage stays below 13.5 volts with the engien running, then the charging system is not working.

    2001 VERAGE txi S.L.O.W

    I am a new user to this site. I have a 2001 Verage txi that i bought that the #2 cylender is not firing. i checked it and found that there is no signal going to the coil. I checked the the wire going to the coil and it omed out good (not broken). The ski only reves up to 4000 rpm's max. does anyone have any idea if this is caused by SLOW MODE? Please help!!

    Welcome to the Hulk

    A moderator may move your post to a separate thread, rather than confusing this thread with a completely different person's diagnostics.

    Are there any warning messages on the display?

    Do you have the correct NGK PZFR6H spark plugs installed?

    Did you check the wire between the EMM pin and the ignition coil, AND the high voltage spark plug wire?

    Remove and clean the coil grounding. Clean the metal tabs, the bolt threads, and the paint where the injector mounts to the cylinder head.

    Did you ohm check the ignition coil?

    There is a check engine showing up on the display. I did check the wire between the EMM and coil checked good. i exchanged wires from one cyl to another no change. there is no signal comming from the EMM for this one cyl. for the coil i did check and it was good also.

    Then you probably need to have the EMM repaired, or find a replacement EMM.

    Call them first, and mark or tag your EMM with your full name/address/phone number before sending it in.

    Include a written description of the problem, and which Polaris year/model/engine it came from.

    if the system goes into limp or slow mode would this cause the cyl not to fire? By the way thanks for the help!
