    crazy, but thinking about disabling my lanyard

    New to the forum. And definitely not a mechanic. But I need input. I have a 1999 Polaris Genesis. Fantastic craft! But this is the second time in one year that "some connection between the lanyard and the starter" has crapped out. In other words, when the lanyard is not in place it turns but does not start - as it should. When the lanyard is in place, there is nothing, silence.

    Its not a problem with the lanyard at all. In the electrical box, there is a red/purple wire coming from the cdi...remove it from the red connection, and move it to a spare orange connector on the board. Should resolve your issues. It's a known problem. The CDI stays powered up, and thinks the engine is running, so it wont allow the starter to run. This adjustment makes sure the CDI gets powered down when the engine is off.

    ?

    Not sure about the "available orange slot on the board". Is it actually part of the electrical box? Please elaborate...
    Told you, I may be an ER physician, but no mechanic.

    It will be a open spade where another orange wire is plugged into the board. and should have the letters OR ...or something like that.

    Yup...I'd post a pic if I had one...sorry. Pull it off the red/purple spade and put it on one that looks just like it, but says OR

    Below is a step by step but Instead of using the jumper wire, simply put the red/purple wire to the orange spade on the electrical box.

    Here is the cdi jumper wire TSB for most domestic models that are hard or will not start when hot.

    Service Bulletin # PWC-00-05
    August 8, 2000

    Subject
    Add Jumper Wire to CDI
    Model Affected: Serial Number Range:
    2000 Virage (W005197D) ALL
    2000 Virage TX (W005199D) ALL
    2000 Pro 1200 (W004999D) ALL
    2000 Genesis (W005099D) ALL

    SCENARIO #1 MODELS WITH DUAL FUNCTION START/STOP BUTTON

    Symptom: Engine will not turn over when engine is warm. After stopping the engine and trying to re-start the engine when warm, the starter motor will not turn over.
    In this scenario, the CDI remains powered up after the engine is shut off, causing the CDI to think the engine is still running even though it is not.
    After the engine and CDI cool, it will re-start normally. Install jumper
    wire PN 2460928 to resolve this issue, following the instructions below.

    SCENARIO #2 MODELS WITH SEPARATE START/STOP BUTTON

    Symptom: Engine turns over but will not start when engine is warm. After stopping the engine and trying to re-start the engine when warm, the engine will crank, but not start.
    Again, in this scenario, the CDI remains powered up after the engine is shut off, causing the CDI to think the engine is still running even though it is not.
    After the engine and CDI cool, it will re-start normally.
    Install jumper wire PN 2460928 to resolve this issue, following the instructions below.
