    2004 Virage i HELP! PLEASE!!

    I have a 2004 Virage i that I bought new. It has been great and never had any major problems. A few weeks ago I went to crank and nothing happened. I hit the start/stop button and the computer fired up as normal but starter did not engage. I bridged the solenoid and it cranked right up. I replaced solenoid....twice....and that did not work. I checked the voltage at the wire harness that feeds the solenoid...it was like 11.46 volts. I tested the new solenoid by jumpering battery voltage (like 12.08V) into the bottom of solenoid and it engaged. So next I thought the start stop module....so I replaced it at $75....still no go. I am at wits end. This is an awesome jet ski and I'm sure something minor. Can someone help me please?

    Is the MFI display working properly? Does it say Locked when you press the Start button?

    See my signature links for how to bypass the MFI security function. See if it will crank with display bypassed.

    What do you mean the 'computer' fired up?

    the display works and it says unlocked. What I mean is that after it sits for a while is shows the time, etc. Then when you hit the start button for the first time after say 15 minutes it sends the speedometer from one side to the other. it has always done that.

    when you hit start is wakes up from what I call "sleep" mode....I mean the display wakes up...not necessarily the computer.

    Try bypassing the MFI display.

    If still no crank, bypass the Start/Stop module.

    Report back.

    This is normal operation for the MFI displays.

    Now you just need to figure out why.

    MFI gone bad?

    MFI in Security/Locked mode?

    Wiring harness or connector problem?

    Not sure. The display worked fine. I locked and unlocked and it still didn't work. Last weekend we rode it by jumping it off over the solenoid and the MPH and fuel and oil gauges worked.
