    Question 2001 polaris virage 700 carburated has no spark and will crank over without lanyard

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!! I just bought this jet ski last night. guy told me it has been sitting for 2 seasons all I need to do is throw a new battery in it and drop it in the lake. well I did that and it doesn't run lol I get no spark at all I tried the holding the bilge button down and that doesn't work I got my meter out after looking on the great forum and I checked for 12 volts going into the cdi box. I believe the cdi has been updated because it has the orange wire that turns into a red/purple wire that goes to the CDI box when cranking the engine over I get almost 11 volts at this wire. I checked the brown wire I get no voltage coming out nothing I tried hold bilge button and cranking nothing I tried removing the grey limiter wire and cranking nothing so I pretty much figured the CDI box was bad. then I noticed on another post someone mentioned there jet ski would crank over with out the lanyard installed. so just for kicks I went out and tried that. and mine does also. is this normal should it turn over with no lanyard in place? any help would be great I just would hate to order a $250.00 CDI box if it needs another item.

    Some models do crank without the lanyard in place. Virage included, as I recall.

    Disconnect and bypass the LR-505 Start/Stop module. In 2001 it is inside the electrical box. I have posted elsewhere how to do the bypass so the engine will crank and start.
