    Unhappy 05 rxp shut down CHECK ENG LIGHT ON help please!

    My buddy and I have rxp's both 05 models. Under 100hrs on each. We were riding in river, I noticed he was not behind me went back to see he was not able to start up, I jumped over and went under to see if he sucked something up, did not feel anything. Towed him back, put on trailer, hit button but starter makes noise like something is jamming shaft. He was running and it just shut down like the key was pulled off, check eng light was on. He is hoping this is not a locked up motor. That ended our great memorial day of fun. At least it was later in the day. What does it sound like to you guys. There is alot of stuff moving around, plenty boat traffic. Any suggestion or things to check? thanks

    Pull the plugs and see if one is smashed.

    You might see if it threw a code?

    I know he said he was at a good throttle and it shutdown like when you pull the key off. He looked down to see check eng on display? I hope that it isn't total meltdown. It ran awesome all day. So nobody is thinking he sucked up something an jammed the prop? I remember on my old 96 xp a shut down and come to find out had a piece of plastic jammed up in mine. After got it out all was fine. Anyway I will keep you guys posted, he's calling Bruce at Xtreme in New Orleans today to see about dropping it off. thanks again guys.

    A 4-tec will not stall, or shut down by itself unless, out of fuel, electrical, or internal failure. Could be a locked up supercharger (bad bearings), or dropped a valve.. keep us posted.
