Thread: Replacing Key

    Replacing Key

    My 2005 Bombardier Wake is not starting and staying started. I believe it is all related to the key or key "sensor", I do not get the 2-beeps unless I position the key in a certain way - and that is not an easy task. In addition, once it is started it cuts off shortly after it is running. What part(s) do I need, and what is the logical replacement process for the key and related starting systems?

    welcome to GH

    the magnetic switch inside the post is failing.

    replace the dess post

    but first clean the inside part of the key with a damp rag and check again.

    while magnetic switches are supposed to have a long life with thousands of actuations, it's common to see the switch fail and require a post replacement

    Inexpensive relative..just a bit of a pain to deal with. Make sure the connections to the new switch are waterproofed as the new switch comes with bare wire ends
