    Is it okay to have a battery charger on while cranking? 2002 TXi

    I have a 2 amp setting. I think my battery may be getting weak. Or could I just leave a tender on it while cranking?

    These machines tend to have bad things happen to the electronics when they are cranked while hooked up to chargers, boosters, or even running cars or trucks.

    If the watercraft battery is weak, buy a new battery. My recommendation is the Deka made ETX16 sealed AGM battery.

    If the current battery cannot deliver well over 10.6 volts while cranking, even after it has been charged, then the battery is too weak.

    Ill have to unhook it and charge it. Its reading 9 on the display after a few seconds of cranking. I'm hoping this is my no spark problem but the battery isn't old, but it did come from Walmart and was bought for my 700 wave rader. The CCA may be lower.

    It was running great for about 20 minutes. shut off and wouldn't start back up. It was running great for about 20 minutes. shut off and wouldn't start back up but I was really low on gas at the time, one bar on the display. It shut off after I floored it from a stop just testing it out.

    if the battery is as marginal as it looks, you are going to create a very large expense very soon. BUY A NEW BATTERY.
