    No, once the engine is running there is absolutely no issues. Only happens when i put key on and try to start

    Re: 98 seadoo gsx limited intermittent starting issue tried everything

    There is a slight possibility its losing main power through a corroded fuse holder in rear box or even the wiring itself. If the rear box and fuse holder are clean with no corrosion i would ohm each end of the wiring going into the rear box and perform the wiggle test. Could have a broken wire inside the insulation. I just replaced a wiring harness this weekend on an '08 yamaha because of broken/bad wires intermittenly not powering the fuse center.

    That's a good call. I have only verified power and ground at mpem with multimeter. Could have a weak ground bc of coroded wiring. Although it looks good, I will run new ground to mpem and power wire from 15 amp fuse. Thanks for your input, I have been getting frustrated with this ski as you can tell lol

    If you post this info in the Sea Doo Section under the Technical Discussion. You will have much more exposure to this problem leading to much more possible fixes.
    If at first you don't succeed...

    Then you're NOT Chuck Norris!

    I've been here with a 98GSX and never found it. I replaced everything (harness, MPEM, etc.). If you pull the 6 pin out of the mag cover it will spin over smooth.

    Have you tried replacing the Buzzer ? It'd be nice to verify/eliminate any DESS post connection issues from the mix.
