    Re: 2001 Seadoo GTX 951 DI starting issue

    Okay i did that, and still it does the same as mentioned above. So this rules out any ground issues correct?

    Any other insight? Still stumped. Also, i checked continuity between positive on my starter solenoid (starter side) terminal to negative on my battery and there was continuity. Is this normal?

    Perform a voltage drop test, it is too complicated for me to get into here but I will provide a link, this test not only tells you how much current you are losing but will help you pinpoint which component is actually to blame. Now the video really doesn't get into one aspect, they are checking the whole ground side and or positive side.

    To find a problem connection or wring problem you test between every connection, fuse, cable etc.

    Y'all know me, still the same O.G. but I been low-key

    Re: 2001 Seadoo GTX 951 DI starting issue

    Thanks for the replies. Sorry my late one. I did the voltage drop to every component and i had no drop. However, When i unplug the positive cable going to my starter, the ski behaves normally. It has normal beeps when installing the DESS key. It also sends power to the solenoid normally and doesn't exhibit the symptoms that i have been having. The voltage on that positive cable is a normal 12.6 like it should be. So it would have to be my starter, in an obvious sense. BUT, I replaced it with a used good starter and it does the same, and Im banking on the odds that the "new to me" starter is good. Any thoughts?

    Any help is appreciated,
    Thanks

    All is well ! Hope all is well with you!

    No DI’s for me. Just 787’s!

    Is this your ski or one you’re fixing for somebody else?

    If you wrote what you did accurately, you've done the voltage drop test wrong. Your statement of "no drop" or 12.6 volts, supports my hunch. Even in a good circuit, there is some drop. In order to test for voltage drop, you have to put a load (i.e. flow some heavy current) through that circuit, putting the meter along the single wire to be tested. The starting is great for that, because there is no other device that draws that much current. You can also use several incandescent headlights on smaller circuits.
