    1998 spx starting issues

    My SPX has been giving me some problems lately, and with the weather already seeming to be turning cold here in Michigan i'd really like to get it out again before fall.
    When i go to turn the seadoo on, the black box in the rear will make a loud buzzing noise, but no cranking of the engine. I have the box opened, but don't know what to do. Any help is appreciated.

    Remove ground cable & inspect the end at the starter they usually get rotten inside.

    A bad battery will make the same sound.
