Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Limp mode can be for various reasons. The first thing to check is does it also come up "12 volt low" and if not or does then next put a voltmeter on battery with engine running at idle and it should be near 14v dc, if not and say under 13 then the system is not charging and hence the problem.... let me know if this is the case and we will pursue it further.
Next would be checking if overheating and if not then having the seadoo connected to scan tool to diagnose what is triggering limp mode. Check oil level, fuel level, as well as having the battery professionally load tested.
Thank you!
