    Genesis FFI will not start

    I have a 2000 Genesis FFI that cranks but will not start. It ran fine for several hours, then would not re-start after a short break. I have tested the start/stop and stop switches with a ohm meter per the shop manual. The fuel pump does not run while cranking. There is voltage at the pump and I can apply the ground to the pump and it will run. I have ohmed out the coils and the strator, they checked OK. Also checked the crankshaft position sensor resistance, it's OK. Where do I go from here? Has anyone got ideas?

    Thanks for any help, Andy

    Does it start if you ground the fuel pump wire ?Do you have spark whilst cranking?Will it start with the tps disconnected?
    Get back to us with the answers and we will go from there .

    Try and just disconnecting the TPS (throttle position sensor)..If it starts and idles then it is bad. it is located at the end of the throttle body on the pto throttle body.

    Thanks for the info but I found a dealer who still works on Polaris and the ski is with them now. I did try to start it with the fuel pump grounded and running, but the engin would not start. I never checked the TPS. I will let you know what the out come is.

    Thanks Andy

    I have a Genesis 2000 ffi with the same symptoms. What did the dealer find with your ski?
