    Question 1998 GTX Dead... Battery is good...

    Working on. A buddies 1998 GTX. When you plug the dess up to the post nothing is happening what so ever. The battery is showing good voltage. I found the 20 amp fuse is the front to be blown so I reeplaced it. Still nothing.

    At the end of last season he said the the ski was killing the battery while riding so I was thinking that he may of had a bad stator? However, when I got the ski from him it had been "dead". Nothing happens when the dess key is put on or the start button pushed?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    There is no 20amp fuse on that boat. 15amp is the biggest. If someone stuck a 20 into the 15 slot they were trying to compensate for a problem. If it blew a 20 then it may have fried whatever the 15 was meant to protect.

    what is good battery voltage = xxxV fresh charge?

    are all cables good and connections clean and tight?

    It sures sounds like something is messed up when a 5 amp larger fuse is blown..

    I also noticed that there was suppose to be a 15 in where the 20amp was. Regardless, even with a good fuse in that slot the machine still is "dead"... does anyone know the values for the DESS post or any other component to check out for a problem like this? I'm on my phone and am not able to open the service manuals to check myslef...
