    spark plugs, battery, water in the engine. those will all do it. there are other things though.

    There's no way there's water in the engine, it ran fine the previous outing, started on the trailer, and ran fine for 5 minutes before I shut it down to pick up a passenger.

    I'm still able to crank the engine after about 15 attempts to start it, so I'm thinking the battery is out also.

    Plugs? All three at once?

    Do you here the fuel pump energize for 1-2 seconds right after you install the lanyard?
    are you hearing 2 beeps?
    Did you have the ski in flood mode at any time, depressing throttle all the way puts it into flodd mode if you want to clear cylinders from excess fuel if you smell fuel...
    If you haven`t already changed the plugs, do so...
    are you getting any codes? sensor codes?...PR...

    I get a buzzing sound when installing the lanyard. It seems like it lasts longer than 2 seconds, but I've noticed that before.

    I did try flood mode, and the engine sounds different while cranking in flood mode, but it still won't start afterward.

    I will try the plugs, but they only have about 25 hours on them, and are platinum plugs. (or is it titanium plugs, can't remember, but $$$.)

    put stock plugs back in it... forget those iridium plugs on ur ski...

    if new plugs dont do it, then check the basics.. if you got spark, fuel, compression and timing, then it has to start...

    After getting close and personal with the ski, the noise is coming from item #19 (Shut off Solenoid) on the following page:

    http://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche....pe=13&A=97&B=1

    Is the "Shut off Solenoid" part of TOPS?

    This looks like a good possibility of being my problem. I might borrow one off my buddies ski to find out one way or another. $144 dollar part, not cheap, but better than a $400+ fuel pump.

    Sorry.

    Pick <2002>, <GTX 4-Tec>, <Oil Separator>

    Then it's item #19.

    I disconnected the connector on it, and the noise immediately goes away.

    If this thing stopped working, would it throw a code, or just stop the PWC from starting?
