New problem!! Buzzing from electrical box/no start
Well, I never made it to the ocean!! The ski started up fine the day before. Now, when I press the start button I get a buzzing sound from the electrical box where the CDI sits! I pulled the box and replaced the CDI and it still buzzes!! I remember the key'd battery switch was filled with salt water when the hull filled with water, and now I see alot of corrosion seeping out of it! So, I ordered another switch. I thought the starter was acting up but I removed it and it tested fine. The engine also turns over easily at the coupler. Does anyone have any other suggestions why the engine does not crank over?

How did you test the starter? Will the engine turn over if you bypass the electrical box and hook the battery directly to the starter wire?

Try a different battery...it may have gone bad or isn't putting out enough volts. You need to have at least 10.8 volts coming out of the battery before it will start.

Have you tried by-passing the starter solenoid to see if the engine cranks over?
If so do you get power to the red/yellow wire leading to the solenoid?
If yes and by-passing the solenoid works, replace the solenoid.
Did you clean all the grounds and power lines at the battery and engine/engine plate?
Is there any corrosion in the electrical box under the board?

I bypassed the key'd battery switch and the thing started up!! There was no water in the box, thank god!! So, I ordered a new key'd switch from PSW, Inc. and as soon as that comes in..back to the ocean!!

What key'd battery switch? Can you get a pic?

Here's a pic of it
This switch is attached to the electrical box tray, just above the battery

I'd be sunk as I'm good at losing things. LOL
