    First day on the Water with Spark - Limp Home

    The first day on the water with my Spark 2 up was great - Very quick, turns on a dime - Ton of fun - until the sound we all fear - one long beep and display shows limp home mode. When i got it home I checked the fuses (i had remebered a post regarding a similar problem) but all looked good. Engine run very rough - sounds like something is loose. Taking it to dealer tomorrow - will keep everyone posted.

    I hope you were attempting Some sort of break in because when they put it on the Computer they get a Graph of RPM,s and what percentage at each level?

    I was definitely working on first hour of five hour break in - Varying speed mostly at 1/2 - 3/4 with a few brief full acceleration - no prolonged high RPM runs - even rested it at idle a number of times. The beep and Limp Home mode happened as i hit a wake (at about 30 mph)

    Seems to be an on going issue. Hiting a wake and getting in to limp mode. I know one was a bad wire, another guy doesn't know his issue due to a lazy dealer. Keep us posted.

    Im hearing allot of issues or just seems like allot but then I think they have been using them in Australia and not report any issues that I noticed. And I've seen the videos of what they do to them.

    I'll just have to wait and see which model I get. I plan to take the top off to check it over sooner than later just to be sure. Still happy with my purchase

    I know of one case the same issue here in Australia and the dealers has replaced all the wiring loom and ECU ... Still the ski has issues and now going to remove charging stator ...

    The ski did the same then started blowing fuse ...

    Hour 20 now. Aggressive break in . Not a single glitch.

    Mine is back at the lazy dealers now an I have a case open with Sea Doo. I posted the issue on Sea Doo's Facebook and they responded positively. I also worte the owner of the dealership a lengthy 2 page letter describing my woes with his service department, haven't heard back yet. The dealer actually listened this time and understand there is an issue with it and they are actually going to have to apply themselves, lets hope. Next call might be a lawyer.

    Good luck with your ski I feel your pain, something is going on electrically it seems in the manufacturing or assembly process. I will report back of course once we find my issue.
