    2005 Seadoo RXP - No Power (No Gauges, No Beeping, Nada)

    Hey guys.....so yesterday i was getting ready to go out for a ride and as always went to start the ski to make sure there were no issues and nothing. The ski is completely dead. My first thought was the battery but was hesitant as its only 2 months old. Checked battery with multimeter and it registers good 12.67 volts, i even took the battery out of my riding lawnmower just to see if it would power up and nothing, next thought was a bad starter solenoid but i already replaced it with the new updated version - checked that with the meter and registering the same 12.67 volts, next i checked all the fuses inc.the 2 30 amp fuses and they are all good. My last thought is maybe the Dess Post went bad. I ordered a new one but was wondering if you guys had any other ideas???? Im lost. Ski was running great last time i rode her about two weeks ago. Also when replacing the dess post do i just rip the wires out of the plug at the harness and push the new ones in? Thanks in advance - Jesse

    I would first use your multi-meter to check the DESS post - there are plenty how to articles out there. next check your two connections for corrosion by your fuses i had this happen once and that was the culprit, i used a small brass brush to clean the little connectors blew it out with air and all worked fine from there

    There's step by step instructions in the service manual on how to test the dess post.

    Key on it should be closed circuit between black and black/yellow
    key off it should be open circuit between black and black/yellow

    It's just a magnetic switch....

    Ok so to test the continuity do i just pierce the wire with the point on the meter ends?

    No, unplug the 6 pin connector the dess post wires go into, remove the orange lock and test at the terminal ends, be careful not to push or damage the terminal ends.
