    1997 XP Do I Have DESS?

    Lost my key yesterday in the rapids! I need to grab a new key but i'm not sure if i need to head to the dealer or buy one off Ebay. Can someone steer me in the right direction to tell weather or not i need a DESS key? Is there anything i can look at to see if it needs a special key?
    Thanks

    I believe you need a DESS programmed key.

    But which key did you use to start the ski with?

    We have a 1998 Sea Doo GTX 951 also. The key from that one worked on the XP. We've had the skis for about five years now. Not sure if the previous owner had the keys programmed the same or if these are just standard keys. IMG_8243.JPGIMG_8244.JPGIMG_8245.JPG

    Picked up a spare key and took it to my local dealer. Took them 10 minutes w/ a handheld programmer and programmed both jet skis to accept the same key. FREE programming! Thanks for the help
