    2006 rxt dead after lightning

    Hey guys, my buddy has a 2006 rxt that was sitting on his hydroport when lightning struck his dock. Now the ski does not chirp when putting the key on, it only makes a buzzing sound and will not turn over. What advice can you offer for troubleshooting?

    Will the candoo program also work for this? I know someone that has that program. He is trying to avoid the dealer as the local one and him do not get along.

    Thanks, for the advice.

    Yes. Test the battery first, check for melted wires then if you get nothing plan on replacing the ECM.

    check your fuses on the 2006 it has a mpem and ecu, the ecu provides ground, for your components,first check point after fuses then is to make sure you have proper ground at the ecu.

    a friend had his ski hit by lightning-- it ended up needing a new ECU.

    Thanks. I looked at the fuses I could see next to the starter solenoid and all seemed ok. I will check the service manual for more in another location. Could this cause the key to be deactivated? I will plan on finding a used ecm just in case. Does anyone have one they would like to sell?
