    Well first off, Welcome to the hulk! I'm not familiar with DI type fuel delivery systems myself. Keith is the man to talk too. Aka...K-477.

    recently purchased a Polaris Genesis 1999

    Try a different browser. I forget which one works but I think it's IE.

    Welcome

    See my signature links for some useful info. You may need to use the simple LED tool to read the EMM trouble codes.

    Red light is flashing? What warning message is showing at the bottom of the display?

    There is no useful test for a TPS other than installing a known good TPS. Bench testing can sometimes tell you if a TPS is bad, but cannot tell you if it is good.

    Well, if the water does not come out the other end, it is hooked up wrong. Can you attach a picture of where you are attaching the hose? It should NOT be hooked to the hose attached to the cooling rail.

    As for your engine issue, K447 has linked you to all the info you need.

    Without proper diagnostics and details as to what you did to "get it running" we are guessing here. But If I were to guess, its the TPS. The TPS could cause issues like this, and the fact that it was unplugged indicates the previuous owner was troubleshooting it.

    On the other hand, the ski should Idle ok with the tps unplugged. Could also be an issue with the EMM.

    Read the k447's or my signature links and start to diagnose the issue. You can build a simple LED tool to read codes (if there are any).

    Cant help much more if you are not willing to help yourself!

    yea fair call, i have done a lot of reading and this in my first jet ski, i am plaining on putting it into a small boat so want to get it going before i strip it down and fit it into the boat.
