96 xp keeps shutting off after starting.
I got an real weird problem with my 1996 sea doo xp. A couple of days ago it started right up. Yesterday I went out and it didn't start. It turns over but doesn't start. Later it started right up and I rode with it the whole afternoon. When I reached my house it didn't want to start again. This morning I tried to start it and it starts right up but after 3 or 4 seconds it turns of by itself It shuts down like something is pressing the off switch. Even if you give throttle it dies. After a couple of tries it wouldn't start at all again. I assume its a electricial problem but what??? I've replaced the coil a couple of weeks ago and I made a new ground cable to the rear ignition box. I checked the spark and no problem there either.
