2003 GTX 4tech still in limp mode!?!? new gauges!
My 2003 GTX 4tech still goes in limp mode, I got my new gauges from shibby, I took the old one out and put the new one in and ran it, once I put the key on, it displayed "SENSOR" then as i went to take off as usual it made the long continuous beep and this time (first time I can see it cause I just bought new gauges) the red light started blinking and the gauges displayed "OIL" so I checked the oil, GOOD, then I went to the seadoo place and bought a oil pressure sensor and when I went to replace it I notice the wire was pulled off/out of the connector that plugs into the oil pressure sensor, so I went ahead and pulled the old one out, and put the new one in, ( Was oil supposed to come out the hole? cause none did.) then i took the wire and put it back in the connector and pluged it in.
I put everything back together and tryed it again and it did the same.?
I was reading my manuel, and I found another oil sensor, the
OIL SEPARATOR PRESSURESENSOR (OSPS)
and woner if it has gone bad, or if I really am haveing a oil pressure problem!?

I just noticed your first pic and I know the 2 pics where from you Manual. if your first pic is from the troubled ski Then check the pins. from what I remember if fault code 1200 is what is wrong with your ski...then possible cause could either be a, loose connector, damaged ECM pins or the ECM could be bad, damage circuit wires or connectors. It woulden't hurt if you check on the "TOPS' too, this can send you on limp mode easily. When you mention that a loose connector was dangling and not hooked up......that changes everything in "Process of Elimination" scenario. Don't throw that Sunken Cluster away. was I right?

I had the OSPS sensor go bad on my '03 GTX-SC ski. But the trouble indications were slightly different. The ski would run for 15 minutes, then go into limp mode and display CHK ENG. I could reseat the lanyard and it would repeat the alarm 15 minutes later. The replacement sensor fixed my problem... Ron

I'm very sorry I waited so long to post my replys!!!
I took it all apart, and found that as I was putting the throttle valve back on I pulled the wire back out, that's why it gave me the same error, so what I did was performed a oil pressure test and found that it had good pressure.
So I just grounded the sensor wire for now till I get it out the water and fix it good, not just try to stick it back in.
Ok once I grounded it I put it all back together and went for a test drive,
Well you remeber when I said I had a coolant leak, well it is showing its face in over heating. I have a leak some where and the thing that scares me the most is that there is white smoke coming out the exaust
I can get the craft up to about 40-60mph before the H-TEMP comes up
but the guages say E-TEMP 80*
And I'm not planing on takeing it to the shop at all unless I need one of their very expensive machines, like that BUD.
Well I have to finish my trailer in-order to get it out the water so I'll keep you posted.

E Temp is the Enviromental Temp (or outside air temp) and not Engine Temp. I thought the same thing the first time I saw E Temp. And, the wiring connector to the oil pressure switch is held on by a metal spring clip. I'll bet yours is missing and somewhere in the hull... Ron
