    newbie 2004 rxp green/black with trailer

    i just bought a 04 rxp with single trailer. I bought it thinking that the key needed to be programmed. After programming it doesnt start. it just makes a clicking noise, when i press the start button. I wanted to see how much my ski is worth. Feel free to make an offer if you are interested.

    Thanks

    Depends on your location and quality of ski, also depends on if the person buying knows what the problem is.

    I'm in the uk and a working one would fetch £4-5k

    one like urs that sounds like its jammed from either a dropped valve or broken chain or supercharger washers shredding, people will pay £2-3k with the idea of spending another 1500 on a rebuild. The US market isnt that much different I dont think.

    There is a chance that its a starter problem but above problems are more common - sorry to be the bringer of bad news

    I can appreciate the poll, but it's impossible to gauge value without knowing if your engine runs properly. Many of these older units have damage from ceramic washers, bearings, etc. and if you drop a valve the cost of a rebuild with parts and labor can exceed the value of the ski. Read this:

    Don't give up on it already, sounds like an electrical problem, same as mine. I have a short in my start button that is causing the same thing. Thought it was the key as well and took it to the dealer and discovered when I installed my UMI steering I pinched a wiring, which corroded after about 6 months.
