    GTX RFI Gauge Flashing and multiple beeps (98)

    On our 1998 GTX RFI when the Lanyard is plugged in the gauge flashes and it beep several times in a row. It will not start when the button is pushed. We recently replaced the stator and voltage rectifier because it was not charging, then this problem imediatly started.

    Any ideas?

    Were not having a great year electrically!!

    Basic Self-Diagnostic Mode
    It is self-activated when the safety lanyard cap is being installed on the watercraft switch. It gives immediate
    monitoring. Some codes may occur only when pressing the start/stop button. Refer to the following
    chart.
    SIGNAL CAUSE REMEDY
    2 short beeps
    (while installing
    safety lanyard on
    watercraft switch)
    • Safety lanyard is
    recognized by the MPEM.
    • Good contact between
    safety lanyard cap and
    DESS post.
    • Ignition is authorized, engine can be started
    normally.
    1 long beep
    (while installing
    safety lanyard on
    watercraft switch or
    when pressing
    start/stop button)
    • Bad connection between
    safety lanyard cap and
    switch.
    • Remove and replace the safety lanyard on the
    switch until 2 short beeps are heard to indicate the
    system is ready to allow engine starting.
    • Unprogrammed or
    defective safety lanyard.
    • Use the safety lanyard that has been programmed
    for the watercraft. If it does not work, check safety
    lanyard condition with the programmer. Replace
    safety lanyard if reported defective. If it still does not
    work, enable advanced diagnostic mode to obtain
    more details about the failure.
    • Salt water or dirt in safety
    lanyard cap.
    • Clean safety lanyard cap to remove dirt or salt water.
    • Improper operation of
    MPEM or defective wiring
    harness.
    • Enable advanced diagnostic mode to obtain more
    detail about the failure.
    4 long beeps
    (while installing
    safety lanyard on
    DESS post)
    • The MPEM cannot
    communicate with the DCCDI
    module (787 engine).
    • The MPEM cannot
    communicate with the
    BOSCH ECU (787 RFI).
    • Check fuse on relay located in front electrical box or
    on the MPEM.
    • Check connectors between MPEM and DC-CDI
    modules.
    • Check connectors between MPEM and ECU
    module.
    • Low battery voltage. • Check battery connections and battery condition.
    • Recharge or replace battery.
    8 short beeps • Defective MPEM
    (memory).
    • Replace MPEM.
    Continuous beep • Engine overheating. • Refer to TROUBLESHOOTING CHART 03-01
