    Ski won't start

    I have a problem with my 08 250. It's not turning over, problem started about 2 weeks ago, wouldnt start so i checked the battery and its fine. Then i checked for water ingestion and it looks like i had some. So I took out the intercooler, dumped it and i had water and salt in there. Got it all cleaned out and back together, new spark plugs and all. Now it stil won't turn over, when i hit my start button it wants to crank then the display disappears. Any ideas out there where to go next?

    Sounds like you could have some water in one of your connectors causing corrosion and a bad connection.

    Also, i put a meter to the batery when my wife would try to crank it, it goes from 12v to about 7v. Is that normal or another symptom of the issue?

    So it wont turn over at all? Have you checked the starter to see if its getting juice?

    Right side under manifold. Order a manual for your ski, its well worth the money.

    Sounds to me like it might be locked up! Check to see if you can turn the engine over manually.

    If its a 08 you still have the factory warranty take it to the dealer let them get it right for free. Doesnt sound good to me.
