    08 VX 110 Cruiser won't start

    Ok ran my waverunners all summer no problems at all, I put them in the lake on Monday and the ran great. Today one started acting up, when you push the start button the display worked but that was all, the engine wouldn't turn. I pressed the unlock button on the remote and then pressed the start button and it would start right up. It happened twice today but started every other time. When I was finished for the day it happened again except this time when pressing the remote there was no beep (unlock or lock) and the display did not light up at all. The security light did go on but that's it. I here like a crackling sound over by the fuse box when I press the remote button but nothing else works. Anyone have any idea?

    Youve had a wire break in the wiring harness. It is common on the vx series. I had one doing that a while back and did tons of research and spent hours troubleshooting then fixed it with a harness. Obviously check all fuses, grounds, and battery condition first.

    i would start by a battery load test first and and make sure battery terminals are clean and tight then if battery is strong 100% i would check for solid 12 v at the red wire on white 2 ways connecting plug under steering column( white plug has 2 wires, one red and one brown, the red is the hot going the start switch and the brown is the one going to feed starter relay, this white connector is known for corroding, look for green brown corrosion build up in terminals. second common problem is the receiver located in front of the gas tank, that little square box encapsulated with ribber is going bad a lot, no way to check it beside replacing with a good known one.
