    2003 4tec GTX issues starting

    100 hrs on the clock, put the key in, press start the starter clicks twice, cranks the motor for a short second but engine doesn't start. Then the gauges resets itself again and press start, clicks twice, cranks motor once and doesn't start. There are 2 short beeps and then again after 2-3 seconds.

    I don't think there is spark, will get a spark tester soon so give it a try.

    If I remove the spark plugs, and crank it, that one time the engine cranks it will shoot a bit of gas out and pistons move up and down freely.

    What should I test for? relay? solenoid? ignition coil (how to test for this coil?)

    gauges says MAINT on it, I will try to pull the codes tonight.

    Thoughts?

    Thank you.

    are all the battery connections and ground cable to block clean and secure? battery in good health?
    clicking then crank sounds like week connection... The MAINT is a timed reminder and needs to be shut off by the stealer...
    is this an NA ski or SC ski?

    Thank you, I will get a new battery first and try things out see if that is the issues. I've used a car battery before this.

    check the simple things first, look at the ground to block cable...
