    ignition problem 05 RXP

    I thought I had a bad battery for my 05 RXP so I purchased a new battery and had my old one tested it tested good I put in the new one and had the same problem. I talked to a freind he said he had problems with the start button I pushed my swithches a bunch of times and it started fine with the old battery it will not do it all the time but it still fails randomly. Is this a common problem that anyone knows about?

    If it is just clicking I would check the starter relay they are known to go bad.

    Where is the relay located does it plug into the board in the front of the ski and is it easy to replace.

    Yes and yes. It's the tan piece mounted to the side of the fuse box in front. Approx. $40 for a new one. Try jumping the ski at that place and if it starts right up then it's your relay.

    yes, try jumping the ski from the relay, take the two (i think they are red) covers off the posts and connect them with a screwdriver or something (get a good connection) and see if it turns over, just had the same problem on an 07 RXP and it turned out to be the relay, goodluck
