    96 sl 900 won't start

    I'm sure I wrecked something major on this deal. I put a new battery in...forgot to cover the terminals and she sparked and shorted when i put the metal brain box on battery. Now the dash display doesn't work and I only get spark on the first turnover of engine...then no spark. What did I do!?! Help!

    1ST check your fuses and breaker, fuses are inside box

    Fuses inside are good....tried reset couple times...put in new plugs....still same thing

    Power surges or spikes in voltage will blow your fuse, take them out and replace them, it is hard to see a blown fuse .Your fuse runs your mfi and one is bilge pump.

    I did have one customer that did the same thing and had to replace the cdi box

    Try unpluging the back of the mfi and check voltage on the red/ purple wire

    also check the ground , black wire also.

    The new fuse did the trick for the multi function display...the bilge is good to go. I checked spark again and it still sparks one time then no spark. So it might be the stator or cdi eh?
