Thread: Will Not Start!

  1. #1

    Angry Will Not Start!

    I have a 05 Sea Doo RXT I took it out today and ran it and it took on some water. Now it will not start it is getting power at the starter and the key beeps when you put the key in. Not sure if something got wet and it is causing it to not start or there is a safety so the electrical parts do not mess up. Also all the fuses are good, none of them are blown. Please help!!!!

    Im guessing its hydrolocked. check the oil for water and pull the spark plugs, depress the throttle and hit the start button.

    maybe it has nothing to do with water being ingested, since you are mentioning it was not much. have you checked oil level though lately ? also does the key seem ok ? i had mine a little crashed because i stepped on it accidentaly and i was getting that continious beep. it was because it didn;t "clickon" on the starter...

    what do you mean by its getting power to the starter?
    does it click?
    does it turn a bit?
    is the starter spinning but not engaging the motor?

    I know on my RXP there is an electrical connection by the ecu, its next to the post where the battery wire connects to. Have you unplugged any of these? there are also two fuses above that. You must unsnap the plug to remove the fuses. If you can hear the starter engaging then it should not be electrical I would think. I would check the oil to see if it looks like chocolate milk..... If so there is water in the engine

    it is getting power to the starter relay, it sounds like the fuel pump is working when you push the start button but the starter does not do anything no sounds from the starter. Just the fuel pump. I took the battary off to try to reset the computer, but it didnt work. THERE IS NOT WATER IN THE ENGINE!!! i didnt take in that much water!!!!

    any chance the starter is dead ? or any wire has beeen cut off while cleaning the hull?

    maybe water is a coincidence then...
