01 GTX 951 DI maintainence in display
Working on a DI runs great then you cut it off then the next time you start it it might display maint. And run like its in limp mode.
Things I have done is replace the plugs with the correct # plug then repair the plug cap were someone forced it over the plug wrong and spread it open. Then checked coils for corrosion but this thing is like new everything is clean. Then checked voltage the charging system is working correctly. Rave valves clean and move freely. Fuses all good and clean.
The only thing I find unusual was when the display reads maint. Theres a switch cycling on the right side just over the water box.
Thanks in advanced for any input.

First of all, the DI skis have a maintenance counter feature in the display that needs to be reset every 25 hours. To reset it, you hold down the SET button for 2 seconds. If this doesn't clear up the Maintenance light blinking at startup on a DI, then you have an internal fault that needs attention.
Second, if the ski goes into limp mode, the only effective way to figure out what is wrong is to hook it up to BUDS or Candoopro and check what faults are causing the limp condition. I will warn you that most dealers don't have anyone that knows how to diagnose DI,s so beware.

DO NOT let a DI run in limp mode for long. Find some good information on DI issues atthe group k website.
I managed to obtain a complete DI ski a couple of years ago with a rusted solid motor. Great source of test parts to confirm a diagnosis before shelling out big bucks for replacement parts. DI parts are too costly to allow a poorly equipped shop to hold a carnival on your nickle. If you can't afford to buy a Candoo, be ready to pay for any shop with one to diagnose the problem (hint..find the money to buy a candoo..relatively speaking..it is not that expensive compared to a wrong guess onabout any DI system part.)

Post back your findings. Your experiences will benefit others.

The maintenance counter can only be reset by Candoo Pro or BUDS. Are you getting a sequense or beeps?
