2016 Yamaha WaveRunner,no wake mode will not engage

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Just started a couple of days ago, at first intermittent now constant

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Yes, I have been reading jet boat blog and many have complained about adjusting the throdle stop sensor/screw and that fixed the problem, (Yamaha jet boats) does the wave runner have simular,

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Pit would save me 75 miles of driving and having it set at a dealer maint facility for two weeks

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I am very capable in both electronics and mechanical
