    2011 rxt will not start

    not familiar with sea doo.i have a 2011 rxt 260 that will not start.gauges wake up when the tether is put on and beeps once.push the start button and nothing happens.there is constant power at the solenoid so i assume the starter relay ground is controlled by the ecu.any imput would be great.

    Pretty sure you should be getting TWO beeps. Sometimes you have to push hard to get the key to land correctly. You could try cleaning out key or trimming some plastic if its not fitting correctly. Is the BUDS updated on the ski? I know there was some key calibration being done in some of the updates.

    2011 models and up you should push red start button first then put dess key on post, right? if you put dess key first then press start dashboard will say : "reading key "forever and will never start.

    ^
    Some skis when you put the key the display will start.
    Other times it will not and you have to press the ignition once to start the display and again to start ski.
    Mines does this randomly for example.
    And i have had to change the dess post as it was giving me problems since the ski had about 10 hrs (2012 rxpx)

    1. Make sure the battery is fully charged….just because it has 12 volts does not mean it has enough amps.
    2. Wake the ski up FIRST by hitting Start button, then put key on DESS post, then you should hear two beeps, then hold the Start button for a few seconds then it should start. If you don't hear two beeps it will not start.
    3. If the battery has good volts and amps and you follow this procedure, then the starter relay and or DESS post needs to be checked out.
    4. Check the ground wire on the starter and battery, check all fuses, and connections. Don't forget the connections under the steering column.
