    Need help any ideas? 96 XP

    Hey all, hopefully I can pick your brains for a second.

    Long story short. Last year I rode my 96 XP from boat launch to campground, it ran great, however it never fired back up. No power was going to the starter, no click no nothing. Took it to dealer in fall, was diagnosed as bad MPEM. Took it to a new dealer this spring, (old dealer won't work on 20 year old machines anymore) along with a new MPEM. Dealer calls says MPEM is fine it is the relay inside MPEM box. Replace relay, nothing. The dealer has tried a stock MPEM setup from another ski, no deal. They said they spent 5.5 hours on it trying to figure it out. They also said a lot of factory wires have been spliced previously. I have owned and ran this ski for 6+ years. A lot of the mods were done before I owned it. It has a brand new engine in it basically.

    Any ideas of other things to check why I wouldn't be getting power to the starter? Not the MPEM not the relay, what else could it be? List of my mods can be found in signature. I appreciate any help you all are always the best.

    Power is not making it from the MPEM to the solenoid. The MPEM was tested and is good. They also installed a known working stock MPEM and still no start. I just talked to him and he doubts the forums can help, so lets prove him wrong! MPEM is good, relay is good, dess post must be good if it is sending power to the MPEM. They spent 5 hours tinkering with it so far, I assuming the grounds have all been checked.

    This particular ski has never had any audible beeps. I think the beeper is not connected or something. Normal startup would be insert key, press start, watch gauge lights come on, once they go off hold the start button. The gauge lights do not come on.

    The ski ran great last year on the ride from the boat launch to the campsite. It is a 20 minute ride. I rode like normal, parked it, and it just never did anything again. Seems weird.

    I asked them if they jumped it, they said no because the problem is power isn't going form mpem to solenoid. I am going to get it back tomorrow, I will waste time on it this weekend. At least I can pick at it and know the MPEM is good and relay is good. I am sure it is something small and dumb. I will try and jump it tomorrow.
