    Rebuilt Engine...ski does not start now!!

    Recently rebuilt my engine over the winter and now I finally have everything hooked up but the ski does not start. I can put the key in and I can hear the starter relay click. I first thought it was the starter relay so I swapped it out with another. Same problem. Also tried hooking up another battery. Same problem.

    However, every time I press the start/stop button the starter relay clicks and the ski electronics would turn "ON" every time I would click the button. Basically my fuel pump recycles back ON after I press the button every time. Is this normal?

    Check your earth's. Try put a jumper lead from the neg battery terminal to a good engine earth and retry. Are you getting 2short beeps when you key on?.

    bad starter or bad cables

    I also tried that by using a jumper cable. I hooked up the negative battery terminal to the engine hoist hooks. Still no go!

    Starter relays are a known weak point. The last time I went to the doo dealership and got 1 they had over 50+ in stock. If that doesn't tell you they fail a lot I don't know what does...

    I didn't spin it by hand on the driveshaft but I did it at the pump. Engine turned fine. I think this is a electrical problem. Just don't know where else to start to troubleshoot.

    I will remove everything tomorrow to double check all the wiring. I also tried jumping the starter relay with a screwdriver and it just clicked like how it would when I tried pressing the start button.

    Starter problem if you jumped the relay.
