    Occassional starting issue 02 GTX 4Tec 155

    My 02 GTX 4Tec has began to act up, 130 hours on the ski. I haven't been able to recreate this problem on the trailer. 9 out of 10 times on the water it will start with no issues, but once in awhile when I go to start it, pressing the start button will make the ski click 3-5 times and then stop without the engine trying to turn over, so I have to keep trying until it decides to turn over. Removing the key and reconnecting doesn't seem to change anything when the issue occurs. Me and my finance were out on the lake last week and this happened and it took us about 10 minutes to get the ski to start. Any ideas? No fault codes, Battery is good and plugs are good.

    Similar thing happened on my 05 RXP, I replaced the starter relay and it fixed the issue.

    I was thinking starter relay also...but I assumed if it went bad it just wouldn't start at all? So the relay can be going bad and the ski still start sometimes?

    Yeah mine would start on the first push of the button sometimes and then would take a bunch of pushes another time. I put that relay in and it fired right up every time.

    Replaced the relay yesterday, got it from 2wheelpros.com - cheapest i could find....wish the 02 4tec had the same relay as the newer ones (~$100 compared to $40-50), but oh well.....my problem is fixed, went to the lake yesterday and everything went great....hopefully this thread may help someone else in the future
