    Lock code on Virage TX

    I am a total newbie when it comes to jetskis. Just bought myself a 2000 Virage TX. Unfortunatley, no user's manual.

    I would like to know how I reset the lock code so I can lock the ski when camping overnight? The previous owner has no idea of the code. I am too scared it will lock me out if I try anything.

    So, to all you Polaris people, how do I reset the lock code on a 2000 Virage TX??

    Also, is there anyway to isolate the power from the dash without actually disconnecting the battery?? Mine drains the battery in about a week or so.

    Thanks for any input.

    Hi epoc!!! Welcome to the Green Hulk Forums!!!
    You could easily install a toggle switch on the power supply or ground wire going to the MFD, flip the switch and no MFD drain.
    The other thing you could do is set your battery up on a trickle charger, they have the battery tender in which you install the pig tails on the battery and then you just have to plug it into the charger when parked.

    The factory default code is "1234" if you friend changed it and can't remember his 4-digit "code" your out of luck-but at least it sounds like it is in the unlocked display so the ski runs, heres the run-down from the manual for '01


    SECURITY LOCK: Briefly pressing and releasing the LOCK button will cause the lock status to be displayed, either "LOCKED" or "UNLOCKED". Pressing and holding the LOCK button for several seconds initiates the SECURITY LOCK function. The MFI will display "ENTER CODE----". Enter the code using the 5-button keypad. The factory set default code is "1234". An asterisk(*) will appear with each press of a numeric button. If the proper code has been entered, the display will show the new lock status. If previously "LOCKED", the security lock will switch to "UNLOCKED", and the vehicle may be started normally. If the previously "UNLOCKED", the security lock will switch to "LOCKED" and the vehicle will not start.

    If starting the engine is attempted while the security lock is set to "LOCKED", the warning LED will flash, the engine will not start, and the MFI will indicate "LOCKED", followed by "ENTER CODE----". If an improper code is entered, the MFI will display "INVALID CODE", and exit code entry mode.

    CODE SET MODE: The factory set default security code is "1234", however, the code may be changed to any 4-digit number. To select your own code, enter CODE SET mode by pressing and continuing to hold the LOCK button for several seconds until "CHANGE CODE" is displayed (the display will first show the lock status, followed by "ENTER CODE----". and finally "CHANGE CODE"). The MFI will then display "OLD CODE"----". Enter the code as if locking or unlocking the vehicle. If the correct code is entered, the display will then show "NEW CODE----". Select any 4-digit code. The display will then read "CONFIRM CODE----". Enter the same code to confirm your selection. "CODE CONFIRMED" will display for several seconds if the second entry of the new code matches the first. If the second code entered does not match the first, "INVALID CODE" will be displayed and the CODE SET MODE is canceled.

    Thanks ph2ocraft. Looks like its an isolator install this weekend....

    pirate33 thanks for the info. I have tried the default code of 1234, but unfortunatley it is an invalid code. Someone has changed it at sometime.

    Surely, this must happen on other 2nd hand Polaris skis. Maybe people just don't bother with it...

    Anyone else any ideas??

    Thanks again Guys.

    One more idea, contact Jay at Atlantic Powersports or Brian at Ultimate watercraft performance, they'll have the answer for you.
    Both are stickied under contact's in the GENERAL section.

    CODE

    First You Can't Lock It Unless You Have The Right Code,i Believe You Can Unhook The Battery For Like 5 Minutes And It Will Default Back To The 1234 Code And Then From There Change It To What You Want

    I had read something on that before, but a couple of months ago with my defective battery issue, I had the battery out of one of my TX's for 5 days-I tried 1234 after putting in the new battery but would only LOCK using my own code(The ski was in the UNLOCKED mode). The only thing that happened to my MFI was the hours reset to 0.0 -I was told by ph2ocraft that it was most likely due to the drain on the MFI from the defective battery
