    RXT 2006 Running bad

    Today I was out for hours riding my rxt and it was running pretty rough half the time. It will spudder and shut off sometimes randomly when going. I could have it maxed out and it will shut off like it just looses power. No error code.

    Then A LOT I get error P-1502 (TOPS Malfunction). And if I wiggle the wire to connection #8 (TOPS) it will go away but only to return soon with the error and limit the engine to 30mph and about 5-6k rpm.

    Then sometimes when it shuts off, I will try to start the engine and it gets to about 500rpm and shuts back off. It doesnt even fully start and then will eventually give me the 12V Low screen. If I sit and wait a little bit, it will start back up...

    Anyone know whats going on? I plan on changing the spark plugs, changing the battery out, and checking some fuses.

    It would run good as gold for a little while but then completely random, the problems pop up and when we get them to stop, it runs good..but only to start all back over.

    TIPS PLEASE!!

    sounds like tops valve or the wiring is shorted out to the tops. welcome to the forum.

    Thanks.

    Do you recommend getting the valve rewired?

    Also, I charged the battery to see if it will hold a full charge and will test this Sunday on the lake. If it says 12V Low again, Will replace battery. Also just popped in some new spark plugs as I'm sure those can't hurt. A technician said that the TOPS valve/module almost never goes bad. But I'm thinking anything is possible.

    Any idea how much it would cost to get a new TOPS valve? I tried searching but didn't find it. The wires don't appear to have any burn marks or breaking points in it; although.

    So can that switch go bad? How do I determine if that is the culprit for doing this?

    where did you find that code 1502 was to do with tops? I have recently thrown that code and i think it was related to low oil, also threw 1692 and i think 1592.

    It is what other topics state. But still getting this at random times when riding. P1502 and it has loud beep. Chk Eng light comes on and limits the motor. Any other ideas what is wrong??

    I just recently changed my 06 rxp fuel pump, and it looked like this when I took it out,
    mine was just sputtering at wide open throttle, but never threw a code,

    It doesn't spudder at wide open. It will do 70 all day long when the Chk Eng light doesnt come on. When it comes on, it shuts off engine and will allow to recrank in limited mode with P1502.

    06 has a vent valve similar to the tops valve. Sounds like that is going bad. oem store has it listed.
