Hi Kevin, my name is Jason.

Do you have a hand held volt meter and do you know how to take voltage measurements? What is the model number on the outboard?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I do not. Two days ago I pulled out wave runner and my shorai lithium battery was dea. I charged it for 10 hours. Yesterday I used wave runner all day. Starting stopping. It was anchored for 3-4 hours and started up perfectly every time. At the end of the day I drove it up the beach and it hit pretty hard on wet compacted sand. Now it won't start. I charged the battery again just to be sure and my tender is showing it as green and charged, plus I'm not getting a low bolt warning when attempting to start. It just won't start. Clicks only
