    Long term Starting problem

    Need help,
    I have a 2005 RXP seadoo with 120 hours. The last two years it slowly has been having starting problems like it has a low or bad battery, clicking of the starter not starting etc.
    Itís now to the point that it will only start if the battery charger is connected to it!
    I have replaced the battery, starter solenoid, checked the start cable (not easy), and added an additional ground to the block.
    I cannot resolve the problem.
    Any ideas?
    Dan

    Checkt the output of your voltage regulator and stator. If any one of them are faulty/not producing enough voltage to charge the battery it could be your starting issues. Also check all your engine grounds to see if they are rusting or loose.

    Does it say low 12v when its running??? if so prob voltage regulator as above, went twice on mine..... should be getting 13.4 ( not 100% on this) across the battery when it working right..

    Best of luck - Ken
