Went to the lake last night, backed the ski in, jumped on it and when I stuck the lanyard on it the ski started by itself! I tried hitting the start/stop button but it didn't do anything. After idling around for a few minutes and fiddleing around with the switch, it started working fine the rest of the afternoon.

It was like the switch was stuck. Its an 06 GTX SC with 36 hours on it.
