Need help with SeaDoo. Will not start. We have checked all

Customer Question

Need help with SeaDoo. Will not start. We have checked all of the fuses, battery is good, crossed it over and it's trying to start but not enough fire to start, checked for loose wiring. When we put the key in, it will beep but when you push button to start it does nothing. Hoping you have some advise for me

What is battery voltage? Has to be above 12.5 volts. If you jump the starter solenid, the switch where the positive battery cable goes to, will it spin the engine? Have you removed spark plugs to make engine easier to turn and purge the cylinders, and check for spark at the plugs when cranking? What sort of safety switches does it have? Seat switch that will not allow start unless you are on the seat?

We are not getting any juice from the push button to the start solenoid, solenoid is not clicking. And we cannot find the 7.5 amp fuse. Which is suppose to be located at the rear of the jet ski near starter solenoid.

Fuse is in the small wire coming of the positive terminal of the starter solenoid, follow the wire direct to the fuse. If key has voltage, fuse is good. Did you check the battery voltage? It will not close the solenoid , with less than 12 volts.
