Customer Question

Optimax 250 on seadoo islandia. we were running fine 30 MPH about 4900RPM, when we got a continuous beep. I came off plane and shut down, beep stopped. checked engine compartment, nothing. restarted, verified water from the tell tale, good. Ran it 5 minutes same thing. We let it sit for an hour, tried to start and no go. Engine turns over but doesn't cough.
