    Its cutting of as if you were to fall of the ski and pull the key out...could it be the wiring from the place where you put the key..to the start button?/?

    how are the contacts on the key post? I have heard they can get dirty and cause the ski to shut off. clean both the inside part of the key and the post itself. it's worth a try.
