    Seadoo RXP 0 ours wont start!

    Hello fellas!

    Today was the big day! I finally arrived in Bonaire where my RXP was waiting for me, I removed the stickers ect. and then I tried to start it just for 1sec to see how its runs. I tried both d.e.s.s. keys but no bleep bleep sound whatsoever, my display does say hello or something like that and it says 0 ours. The main reason I putted the lanyard on was to check if the VTS system worked.

    Now it has been standing still for about 1 month in my garage since I was in the Netherlands so mayby thats a reason, or the dealer dit not code the keys? I can't call the guy because its some sort of labor day here..

    The battery works fine btw...

    Thnx for your help guys!

    maybe your d.e.s.s key was not programmed to start your ski?
    0 hours so its brand new never used before?
    if its a brand new unit make sure you got oil in it and antifreeze and gas.
    maybe your ski was not even well prepared properly before delivery.
    thats all i can think of so far.

    sounds like a key problem to me... Seadoo has had sporadic bad bathes of DESS keys over the past 1-2 years.. so the program may have failed, the keys may be bad, or they weren't prepped and programmed properly.

    Sure it's not the battery? Mine did the same thing & it turned out to be a defective battery.

    Well I checked it whith a voltage meter and it said something like 90% and the display works to it says ''welcome aboard seadoo.'' So could it still be the battery?

    Dealer is back tomorrow..

    Sounds like the keys because you got power. Didn't the dealer test start it when you took delivery?

    Funny thing though because mine beeped and lit up everything but just wouldn't start. Dealer diagnosed it as having a bad battery, they sd it wouldn't hold a charge. Let me know how it turns out.

    Well I din't speak to the dealer jet and I think he din't test it then Stupid people.. If its the key how long will it take to get a new one and what does the dealer need to install the key. You see my RXP is on Bonaire and the dealer is located in Curacao, so he will have to fly here or I would need to send the ski back to curacao? since there is no dealer on Bonaire...

    Damn hes really stupid if he din't test it, I problemly would have to wait till xmass wen im back here since im only here for 1 week argg!
