    2002 Polaris Virage I Electrical Problem

    I recently replaced a blown motor on my ski,,and I can't get it to work properly,,,Replaced motor sounds good when it's on,,,but this are the sypmtoms,,,To get it started and for it to remain running,the start/Stop button need to be press all along, as soon I release it,the motor shuts off.
    The reason the motor blew up initially was because the oil pump stopped working.Do I need to take it to a dealer to reprogam the ski,,,

    On the start solenoid the wire for the sytem feed needs to be on the same side as the + ve from the battery .Check to see if it isn't on the wrong side

    2002 Virage i

    Still has the same problem,,,as soon I depress the start/stop button,engine shut's off,,,can it be the start/stop button that is the problem ??? It's feeding power when start switch is engaged,and it cuts it as soon I release the button,,,

    Can you let us know the color of the wire ?We can then look at the wiring diagram and work out the reason it ran whilst you held down the start button .

    Same problem on 2002 TXI

    I have the same cranking problem on my 2002 TXI. After about 15 or 20 attempts it will crank. I tried the suggestion of holding down the bilge switch while cranking and it starts right up so what do you think the problem could be.

    Thanks,
    Larry

    Bummer,,,after further review the wires inside the insulation were good it was the insulation that melted from touching the exhaust,,,I've re-routed the wires,,,funny thing happend though,while me and my buddy were messing with the start/stop button,which I have it disassebled,I pushed the bilge pump button at the same time as the start button and it worked,motor remained on,,,,then it went back to the same problem,I will test the start/Stop switch with the ohmeter according to the manual and see what readind I get,,,did not have an ohmeter at the time,,If it's more than 3 ohm,,,it needs to be replaced. right ??
    if I do need to replace it,I will order it from a sponsor of this site,,,or where ever modurator sends me,,,

    Thank you all for the help,,,
