    2002 Seadoo GTX 4 TEC grounding wire question, and no start

    I have a 02 seadoo gtx 4 tec, I bought it really cheap, had a some hole in the hull, which i fixed
    the guy took the engine out, but hole wasn't all the way thru the hull....
    I installed engine and connected everything back up
    everything looks right, but when i plug in the tether i hear a constant buzzing noise
    if i pull the plug below where the two positive wires come out (1 stater, 1 battery), buzzing stops
    get no display
    battery is 12.5 volts
    I thought I read somewhere there are 2 grounds going to battery
    I have 1, but next to where you bolt the cable to battery, there is a bolt with a black wire bolted to ground wire
    I searched everywhere for a ground, I didn't remove any of the parts, so unsure if I am missing something
    Guy told me it was running great when he hit log, and it was low hours
    any help would be greatly appreciated
    thanks,
    Mike

    The buzzing should be your fuel pump it runs for 30 sec when you insert the key. There are three grounds that go to the front of the engine block.

    I don't have 3 grounds... where do they come from
    I never took engine out, got it back in a box
    My ground looks exactly like sbt installation guide
    one ground connected to battery, and one bolted to one ground

    Your 02 might only have one ground different years had different number of grounds. Re check all the electrical plugs.

    The 5amp fuse is for the ECM and start stop switch make sure it did not pop again.

    Make sure you have the two plugs on the front of the engine correct there is one for the oil pressure switch it has one wire and there is one for the TOPs valve it has two wires and the plugs are the same.
