Thread: Key Fob

    Key Fob

    I've got a Yamaha VX and have lost the key fob. Of course the starting capability is turned off. Is there away to over ride this function? Dose the fob just stop the cranking motor from cranking, or does it also turn off the electric to the motor starting ignition? Thanks

    You'll have to pick up another remote-- either thru someplace like Ebay ( about $60) or from a dealer (much more $$) then take your ski with proof of ownership (like the title) to a dealer and they can reprogram the ski to the new remote in about 10 minutes. The control box the desler plugs into the ski to program the remote to it is not available anywhere else and yamaha guards them like fort knox.

    If you ride with a friend who has a waverunner, you can program his remote to work your ski also without affecting it working on his ski at all (the skis are what's reprogrammed to accept a remote-- the remote is not changed)

    My dealer charged me $28 to program 2 remotes to mine---did it in 10 minutes in his parking lot with the trailer still attached to my car-- i just called ahead and made sure they wern't too busy to do it.

    or you can buy a control box that is already open and just plug it in your hardness , and forget about the remote.
