    03 gtx di - new to me keeps beeping

    Hello,

    i just recently purchased my first ever PWC, i put the DESS key in and every few seconds it beeps a 3-4 times, and it doesn't stop. the machine starts fine and there are no messages. Is this normal? is it suppose to do this?

    thanks

    I belive on those models same as the 4-tec ones those beeps are to remind you that the key is put on the dess so if you stop the engine and let it on it will remind you.

    On the other half check your oil / fuel level.

    just my .02

    Yes perfectly normal. The DI models use a lot of battery power to run all the accessories and this is a warning. more of a nuisance than anything else but it works because I cant handle it more than 2-3 times.

    According to this it will stop after 2 hours. Hopefully you remove the DESS key from the post sooner.

    Section 07 ENGINE MANAGEMENT (DI)
    Subsection 03 (DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES)
    DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES
    GENERAL
    Here is the basic order suggested to diagnose a suspected fuel injection related problem:
    – Check the chart in TROUBLESHOOTING section to have an overview of problems and suggested solutions.
    – Check if there is a MAINT signal reported by the vehicle information center. If so, use the VCK (Vehicle
    Communication Kit) and look for fault codes to diagnose the trouble.
    – Check all fuses.
    – Check air/fuel rail pressure.
    – Check spark plugs condition.
    – Check if the RAVE valves are stuck.
    – Check fuel pump pressure.
    – Check air compressor pressure.
    Self-Diagnostic Mode
    It is self-activated when the safety lanyard cap is being installed on the watercraft post. It gives immediate
    monitoring. Refer to the following chart.

    4 short beeps every 3 seconds interval for 2 hours.
    • Safety lanyard has been left on its post without starting engine or after engine was stopped.
    • To prevent battery discharge, remove the safety lanyard from its post.


    • Drowned mode is active. • Release throttle to cancel this mode.

    Well what does that mean?? Is that to get help from passers by so you dont drown.. Or that you drowned and did not let go of the throttle..

    Or that the throttle is wide open, thus clearing a drowned engine..

    Found it - Drown Mode is activated by holding the throttle wide open and cranking the motor over - while in drown mode the engine will crank by not start..
