    99 spx wont start

    Hey guys, put my battery in today. When I put the key on it doesnt beep and when I push the start button nothing happens. My bilge pump runs every 30 seconds though so i know the battery is not the issue. I am guessing my key or the post maybe??? i have no idea, where to begin, how to test these things. Am i better of just taking it to the dealer?

    Are both plugs, plugged into there spots, the one up front on the mag cover and the rear black electrical box? What is the condition of your ground cable? Follow that from the battery and down to where ever it goes. Does anything light up when you hit the start buttom, you should be able to hit the start button without the dess key plugged in.

    Ok, when i press the start button the bilge pump runs then runs 30 seconds later then the guages shut off. When i have the key in and push the start button I can move the trim. I am guessing the grounding is the cable that is the other part of the negative cord. If it is I believe it is in good shape. Are the plugs you talking about the sparkplugs? if it is they are in the correct place. Nothing lights up when I hit the start button. I can just move the trim and the bilge pump works.

    Fixed a 951 with this issue yesterday , I even had to replace the fuse holder and the ring terminal on the starter solenoid because it just got corroded, and the fuse was popped too
