    95 XP - VTS CLICKS, but Motor doesn't Turn! Need Ideas!

    Hey guys - I recently sold the VTS housing (just the housing, not the motor) from my 1995 Seadoo XP. This was removed in WORKING and TESTED condition. The VTS is technically from a 1996 SPX, but they were compatible, and I used this without issue on my 95 XP for the last 5 years.

    The buyer just got it, and told me that he hooked it up before installing, and when he presses the VTS button, he hears a 'click' sound, but no movement from his motor.

    I remember having this EXACT issue with another older seadoo when I replaced its VTS.

    I can not for the life of me remember what I did to solve it - but the VTS wasn't the problem - as I ended up using it.

    Any ideas here would be greatly appreciated!

    Although in this case - since I know that the unit was working before shipping it out - I would lean more to it being something on the other skis end. I mean, the old VTS went out on his ski obviously which is why he needed mine - so it may have blown some fuses on its way out.

    The clicking sound is one of 2 relays under the epoxy encapsulation in the VTS control. One is for up control and one is for down control.
    The thought that leads to no action is not thought - It is dreaming!!
    Think Big!!

    Some people have hobbies - some people have addictions - I have jet skis!!

    Biggest issue with the VTS is they leak internally and the motor corrodes and won't turn or turns hard and ends up overloading the module and destroying it.
    So the first check is to open cover and remove motor to check
    I have a fix if the module is bad with relays but you will lose stop limits

    Finally got a note back from the buyer - sure enough - the 7.5A fuse! So all good now - case closed!

    Makes me really happy that I am VTS free now!

    Question though - can I replace the NOZZLE part of my 95 XP to one that does NOT have the VTS part? So I would just hook up my steering cable and be done? It would have to be from a model with the exact same pump style and steering cable length.
