    2003 seadoo 4-Tec won’t run

    Hey guys i’m having some issues with a customers 4-Tec Seadoo. Hasn’t ran in over a yeah so i did the basics, flushed fuel system, new spark plugs, oil change and checked everything over. Machine will not start, cranks over but won’t fire. I checked compression and it was good, checked spark and it was good so i used starting fluid and it still won’t even fire on starting fluid. I’m not sure where to go next with this thing as this is the first 4 stroke I’ve had with a no start in my shop. Any common issues that these things have that i should be looking for? I’ve searched for what feels like hours online and had zero luck. Thanks in advance!

    ECM recognizes key, how many hours dash say ? Spark plugs properly gapped ? Hear the fuel pump ?
    You put little bit gas or this starting fluid in cylinders or sprayed into intake ?

    '96 GTX-1mm overbore,F/a's,intake grate,port timed for mid and top end
    '95 FX 1- usually take this motor to 753cc with exhaust porting and reeds

    Right into the intake, also tried some fresh gas in the spark plugs and nothing, new plugs gapped properly and we have fuel coming out when the lines disconnected but i just bought the adapter to check pressure. Has spark and injector pulse so i’m not sure why it won’t fire with the gas in the cylinders

    Yep thats all good checks.
    Check all grounds going to block ( maybe you searched that ) and battery lead, verified these plugs spark not just the tester to coil ?

    I used an inline spark tester. Good spark, I’ll check block grounds as well but battery was pulled for the season so i installed it before doing any diag
