    2002 GTX Ignition Problem

    Here is the problem. Hookup the lanyard and get the 2 short beeps, the display comes on showing the time. If I press the start button I hear the starter solenoid click and then the display goes off. If I push on the lanyard again, I get the 2 short beeps and the display again, and the cycle repeats. If I donít push the lanyard again, and press the start button, I get repeated long beeps about every 2 seconds.
    I have tried shorting the posts of the starter solenoid and get no spark nor does the starter engage. Iím thinking it is a bad starter with an open connection in it. Anyone have any other ideas?

    Try jumping across the solenoid. the start solenoid could be bad, or possibly corroded copper wire between the starter and the solenoid or between the battery or solenoid.

    The battery is weak or bad. Try charging it and load testing it. If not just replace it. IF it still doesn't work the Ground Lead can be bad looses or dirty connections were it connects to the engine. Most of the time the battery is weak and needs charging or replacement

    The neg wire is bolted onto one of the lugs under the engine. They love to get nice and nasty.

    I have tried jumping across the solenoid, I got nothing. I have also tried jumper cables from the ski battery to my car battery, no change. Will check the ground cable.

    try puting the (-) of the jumper cable onto the (-) battery and the other end of the jumper onto 1 of the head bolts-- you are essentially running another ground wire.

    Good call Jim.

    If the head bolts/nuts are still painted you will have to either scrape one or find another ground source.
