    01 xlt wont start....

    My xlt ran fine last week, wouldn't start today. Battery seems fine, used it to even start another ski. No turning over, no solendoid click, nothing. Except the "warning" LED light seems to be on. What's the most probable cause for this?
    Thanks.

    generally the starter relay itself, inside the electrical box.

    I'd lend you a spare but I'm 20,000 kms away

    Thanks guy, I'll see if I can get in there and test it or jumper it or something.
    Just in case, is there a 2nd most likely cause of this sort of no-start condition?

    Check the start/stop switch; those go bad on a regular basis. Unplug the harness under the front bucket and short it with some needle nose pliers, just long enough to bump the motor. You don't want to start it up and not have a way to shut it off. I just had to fix one a few weeks ago on my old ski.

    So after spending the better part of the weekend charging batteries, swapping them between skiis (ok, it didnt take the whole weekend, but I couldnt use the ski to go wakeboarding either)...towing it in to shore behind a pontoon boat, and then trailering it back home 2hrs away....The SOB started right up in my driveway, first try without doing anything

    Now since I dont have a no start condition to resolve (e.g how do I know if its fixed or not), WTH do I do now?

    Could be a loose or corroded connection or a starter relay that is starting to fail/stick.
