    99 gp760 starter problems help!!

    1999 gp760 with new batt. Only making a quick buzzing sound and that's it. Then I have to re-enter the unlock code to try it again. I put power right to the starter and it turned over slow. Then everything was working fine, I hit the start button and it worked for about five mins. Not sure why? Then it's back to making a buzzing sound like if the batt is dead. I think it's the starter or the starter relay or the rectifier & reg assy.
    Not sure what the rectifier & reg assy does? Ground and power wires look good.
    thanks for any help

    Pull the plugs and turn it over by hand that will tell you the motor or the pump is not binding.
    Then start troubleshooting.

    How old is the battery
    1/2 the time people swear the battery is good and it is bad.
    You say its slow when you put power to the starter what are you jumping it with.
    If you have a GOOD power source to the starter it should turn over good and fast.
    If it does not then you need to look at the starter or inside the front cover to see why it doesn't.
    Most likely you need a better power source (new battery)

    battery is
    about ten days old. The wires (+&-) are clean on the battery and on the starter end. I just dont understand why I have to re-enter the unlock code everytime? I have to unlock it and then i get a click or buzz sound and then I have no power. I have to unlock it with the code to get power back.

    thanks for all the help!!

    When you charged the battery how long did you charge it.
    I know you can use them straight out of the box after adding acid.
    How many volts do you have and how many volts do you have when trying to start the ski.
    Tell me again what happens when you jump direct to your starter from your car.
    If its not turning over fast at this point you have something binding and slowing it down.
    If its spinning fast then nothing is binding.
    May be a bad starter relay jump it with piers etc.
    Work back to the battery.
    Get a manual or look at it online it tells you how to test everything.
    Its easy to follow the juice get a meter if you dont have one.

    At first when I jumped it direct it was turning slow with the plugs out. After I did that a few time it was turning over fine with the plugs in and would fire up fine. So I thought i fix the problem. So I put the electric box back together and walked away for about an hour. Came back , would not start,back to the samething. I guess i need to pull the starter out and get a good look at it. If the rectifier or the relay went out what would that do?

    After a lot of cranking plastic can melt in the relay and stop contact being made.
    Just see what happens when you jump the 2 posts on the relay with a screwdriver or pliers.
    Motor should crank and fire.
    If it does not crank relay is bad.

    does not turn over when I jump it on the relay. Anyway to test it, I guess that would be how you test it. You can feel it click, that about it. I put a test light on the side that goes to the starter, the test light was kind of dim. It was bright on the batt. side.
