Help - 2008 RXT starting issue
I completed all required winter maintenance earlier this year, including supercharger rebuild (thanks Jerry). Reinstalled freshly charged battery and replaced spark plugs, and now the engine will not start. With DESS key installed, dashboard powers up and you can hear the fuel pump cycle. No error codes or other fault indications. When I push the start/stop button - nothing. Checked all fuses and they are OK. Seems like most likely is starter solenoid or starter relay, but would appreciate some back-up before I start grabbing parts. Thanks in advance!

May seem like a dumb question - but are you sure you are using the correct key. Do you have 2 skis? It acts like a non programmed key - but IDK. Maybe somebody who's had starting issue will chime in. Maybe the DESS post went bad ...

Push the key all the way on.
Jiggle it back and forth.
Sounds like a key or post issue.
Also check your ground wires.
