mod ecu on o5 rxp- check engine, knock sensor
With the rotax mod ecu I get a check engine light with a knock sener code. The boat runs at 8400 very strong. The ecu says right on it for use without knock control? Is it safe to ride in this condition, and what can be done to elimanate the check engine.
Sorry if it is posted elseware but I am at a race with limited computer use.
Thanks for any help.

next time u get the check engine light... press set 5 times quickly, it will give u a code...
it's gonna be a knock sensor fault...
on the 05 ski with a Rotax Racing ECU, you need to disect the stock wiring harness and cut the knock sensor resistors out of the harness, then solder wire extensions and put the plug back on... that will solve your problem...
u'll find the knock sensor integrated in the 05 harness as a 6" long bulge about 3/8" thick.... it's a round long black bulge... inside that is a few circuits and resistors and whatnot... snip the wire right against the bulge on both ends. u'll find a blue/yellow wire.. and further peel back the wire wrapping and u'll find an UN-insulated wire that also needs to be extended to mate the plug back on it
now u ultimatey have an ski wired like an 04 RXP... if u want to put the knock sensor back in, jsut get a piggy back harness jumper and plug it in and u have ur knock sensor back for the stock ECU

Steve, welcome to the forum!
Looking forward to seeing you guys in Havasu again this year.
What shibby said is correct. You must remove the resistor out of the wire harness going to the knock sensor.

Thanks for the help. We did the resistor removal at the race site on saturday morning. Worked just fine.
Yes we will be in Havasu again. This year it will be the Supercourse world finals!!
