    Dead Autronics R500 ECUs

    I can get a modded RXT, which apparently keeps killing Autronics R500 ECU's. What are the possible causes?

    The 500r is a CDI ignition not a ECU. Get in contact with seadoo centre for help

    Most probable cause is water damage and or wire harness issues. As Nills said the R500 is a CDI unit that works alongside the Autronics SM4 ECU to give a much stronger spark. Not really neccersary unless your running big boost and/or high compression.

    Seadoo centre have the most expirience with autronics.

    water damage on the 500 cdi are common. les (seadoo centre) can possibly repair the cdi and seal it. there is also a waterproov sm4 ecu casing. les cooke is the one to contact. good luck!
