died, won't restart
took my 96 XP out today and it ran awesome all day today, I was so happy with it. It felt fast and had no problem keeping with my buddies sc GTX. well end of the day he was pulling his ski out and I went back for one last blast. I came down off the top of the wing dam kinda hard. it smacked the water pretty hard and died. all 4 warning lights keep blinking on and off and it wouldn't crank or do anything. It finally started to crank but it wouldnt restart. I floated back down to the dock and pulled it outta the water. I can't find any loose wires anywhere. I pull that black box apart in back of the boat next to the battery and it was full to the top of water. I drained it and found a broken wire off one of the solenoids. I fixed the wire and still nothing. you plug the lanyard in and nothing happens no chirp, no lights, no nothing. any ideas??

when you hit the start button with no key in...does the multi gauge light up at all? will the starter even click with the key in

it doesn't do anything. no chirp, no lights or anything. It's like the battery isn't hooked up. the battery is brand new and It checked out good when I tested it.

Isn't there two fuse holders in that rear box? Maybe they are corroded. One is a 15amp. The 7.5 amp goes to the vts. If I'm reading the schematic right it provides power to the module. I bought a GSX years ago and pretty much had the same thing happen. Found the rear box full of water. Had to repair the wires that attach to the solenoid cause they broke off and replace the fuse holders cause they were corroded bad. I would check every thing out in that box. You will probably want replace the solenoid while you are at it. Mine bit the bullet shortly after I did the wire repairs. Just my .02

seadoo solenoids are famous for shorting out, especially when they have been under water for a time. did you try jumping across the solenoid yet?
