    98 gp1200 no start??

    here is my problem. pulled the ski out of storage for a potential buyer. put the battery in which is good tested good and hit the start buttom nothing?? not even a click. so i checked the fuse in the box the wires connect to ( having a brain fart) and replaced that....still nothing. hook the jumper cables up to my truck just to see... nothing. but i moved the cable on the truck around and on the cable to the ski everytime it sparked it would crank the ski??? what could be the problem. I,ve heard about the code in the dash would that be the issue. the ski ran perfect up till the day it was winterized and stored. thanks so much for the help

    New battery? Check both cables to starter and block . Replace battery if not new.
