    2 short beeps, 1 long beep , crank but no start

    Hi All,

    i recently picked up a 2005 rxt and seeing some problems with it, before I picked it up I got a chance to ride it a few months back, since then its been kept in storage. I brought it home the other day and had a brand new battery installed (fully charged) , i'll get the initial 2 beeps, then one long one and then the 4 quick reminder beeps like normal. The ski will crank/turn over slightly but then thats it, no start ... nothing. The "!" led on the gauge cluster is blinking as well, not sure if thats normal or not. Has anyone ran into this before? I couldn't find anything in the shop manual about it so hopefully someone can help,

    Thanks in advance!

    you have a sensor code.You will need to extract the code and see what it is.

    Thanks Chris,

    I put the DESS key in, hit the "set" button 5 times and the LCD just shows "END" and thats it, is there another way to pull the code?

    Thanks hotbird, it worked!

    it cranked over a few more times than before, definitely a slow crank though, methinks the battery is a weak one or something, but the code is Code P1681 : Communication Problem - instrument cluster message missing

    try charging up the battery or replace it and see if that helps?

    The battery is a new one (unsure how long it sat in the box though) , I had it on a trickle charger for the weekend and its still showing the weak start, if the ski systems are anything like a car, it's showing very similar symptoms to a weak/dead battery.

    The battery leads tight? battery could be bad out of the box, had it happen to me. your positive the battery is 100% CHARGED?

    THE BATTERY COULD HAVE A DEFECTIVE CELL

    i bet if you try a different of gtg battery it starts right up assuming leads are tight

    leads are solid, i'll try cleaning the contacts again and see if that helps. I've had it happen to me as well, though not on a jetski. Thanks for the help everyone, i'll post back with my findings to help others in the future.

    Does anyone have any good suggestions for a particular brand or battery ?
