    2008 VX Cruiser Electronic Throttle Malfunction Code 123

    I recently got my skis out of winter storage to prepare for the summer. My 2008 VX Cruiser started right up then the warning light and engine light came on. When I press the mode button it gives me the code 123 which from other posts says it's a Electronic Throttle Malfunction. The ski will not rev past 3000 rpms. I have checked all connections, drained the fuel and added new fuel. Anyone having the same issue or someone know what I should do next to diagnose the problem?

    this happen to my friend vx also, all we did to get it working again was, we remove the intake hose from the manifold and we cycle the throttle plate by hand few times, [ opened fully and let it close by herself ] ,fired up till today still works fine.
    don't know what happen to it , but we believe it got stuck somehow while it was park for 5 months.

    I have tried the same thing. The throttle plate moves smoothly. Did you have to clear the warning code somehow or did it clear itself?

    try taking out the connector to throttle body and spray it with silicon spray, have seen a lot with corrosion issues.
