RXP won't start
We were running on the Minnesota river yesterday, stopped for a break for a few minutes, started up the 2004 RXP and it died in a few feet. Tried numerous restarts to no avail.... turns over, but no hits.
- We had recently added fuel. (other two boats that took on fuel were running fine)
- Maintenance light had flashed earlier in the day, but was not on prior to this problem.
- no engine mods to the boat.
Any suggestions on where to look?

I would try installing new plugs, or at the very least, reseat the coils to the top of the plugs. remove the plastic piece on the top of the engine, then pull the coil packs off the plugs. Look down in there and see if there is any water etc. Check and see if you have any error codes on the display. Cant remember how to tell you how to check for the codes, but somebody will chime in with that I am sure.
I would drain the gas and put known fresh gas in.

Check the your three main sources of ignition-sp
1. Spark (pull a plug and make sure you got spark)
2. Fuel ( drain your fuel and replace)
3. Air (check your air intake system)

does it keep turning over or does it stop spinning by its self after a few seconds?

Keeps turning over, only stops when you let off the starter

Try turning it over with the throttle wide open for a few seconds. then try normal start. if that doesnt help maybe some else can help larry.
