    If it is similar to a 1996 XP, mine began leaking at the rubber boot at the rear on my 1996 XP after about 3-4 years. It was a Very common problem amongst the older Doo's from the mid 90's
    Here is a good article below.

    The rubber boots in the back ripp and ley water in the vts housing. Seadoo used Steel clamps that ripp the booy. Use zip ties when you repair it or the updated plastic clamps.

    ah ha ... u guys are the best. yea i checked it out, that rubber boot slipped out from under the rear clamp and it is eaten up a bit... i'm leaving the VTX black box open to let it thoroughly dry out and assume it's not locked up or shorted or anything.

    thanks
