    help! display wont turn off!

    hi, i have a problem with my 2008 rxpx,

    it has been sitting not used for about 2 weeks but was working fine before this.

    i now plug the key in it starts up and then when removing the key it does nothing, the display stays turned on and motor keeps running, i can turn the ski off my the off button, but the display always stays on, the only way i can turn it off is if i disconnect the battery then it resets and it does it all again...

    as i said before it sat here i never had a problem, if you can help please let me know! thanks

    It's your dess post.
    Very common problem.
    You need a new dess post.

    He is correct, bad dess post. You can be 100% sure if you disconnect the DESS post connection under the steering harness and it shuts off.

    Definitely the DESS post, there is 2 reed switches in the post and it is not uncommon for them to stick.

    Hmmm, as long as you understand you didn't "fix it", you just temporarily stopped the switches from sticking. You need to replace it because it will happen again. It is an important safety feature, you do not want to come off the ski and have it continue running!!
