    Weak battery is the number one reason for weak spark.

    Replace the battery with a new battery.

    Voltage at the battery while cranking must be over 10.6 volts.

    Hold down the bilge button. Does the bilge pump run?

    Keep holding the bilge button, and press Start. Does the engine start and run?

    If yes, check the voltage at the Red/Purple wire that feeds directly into the CDI module inside the electrical box. Must also be over 10.6 volts while cranking.

    After that, check the ignition components around the CDI;

    Polaris Domestic (red) engine

    How do I test old and new domestic red engine CDI, Magneto and Ignition coils?

    My ohm-meter measurements don't exactly agree with the service manual specifications. Is this OK?
