    1200 ltd d-plate installed - engine dies

    Just installed d-plate (that sucked) and headed to the lake. Ski shoots out of the hole, runs up to 52mph and dies. Now it won't crank.
    I did plut the sensor chip in the sensor that is located on the bottom of the exhaust and not the top. My buddy tells me it goes in the top. Would that make the engine act like it did?

    Engine Ran Great, Got A Warning That Said Exhaust, Replaced The D-plate And Ran Fine On The Hose. Dies Under A Load And Won't Even Light Up The Screen With Anything Now. Absolutely Dead.

    Double Checked The Sensor Locations, There Is Only One Place That The Newly Purchased Sensor Will Fit And That Is The Receiving End Of The Plug That The Front Sensor Was Originally Plugged Into.

    Absolutely Nothing Happening Now.

    The sensor that was nearest the cat gets unplugged, then the chip goes in that receptacle, It's that simple. Sounds like you have a battery issue if you are getting nothing anywhere.

    That sounds like your problem, my XLT plugs into the plug going to the top sensor, not the bottom.

    If you did not get the inner rubber connector on correctly you might have filled your cylinders with water, pull the spark plugs and look.
    Then when you tried to start it you blew a fuse, But no power sound like the battery connection

    OMG......How in the world could I get that on wrong? Plus, the dash should still light up regardless.

    I pulled one out of a ski with black exhaust markes on the water side.
    I don't know how he did, it but he did.

    Can you explain? Plus, why no power at the dash? Ran for five minutes on the trailer?
