    2006 RXT

    I am at the lake right now and don't have access to me owners manual.....or the Seadoo for a little bit but does anyone know any reason why my 06 RXT might experience completely random starting issues? I know this is REALLY vague however, when I plug in the DESS key every once in a while it wont turn over at all when I push the start button but the machine is beeping. If I remove the key and reinsert it everything is fine....it's done this 2 or 3 times now.

    The starter solenoid/relay can easily go bad and cause issues like this. The local dealer here had 22 in stock last time I bought one, so that might give you an idea of how common it can be.

    Ok, are they expensive and are they hard to install. Like I said, it's completely lately random!! I would say 9 times out of 10 it's fine

    It's pretty easy, you just need a 10mm socket. I would check your battery voltage as well, just to be safe.

    They're about $45. Part number/description/price below:
    278001802 STARTER RELAY 1 43.99

    I had one go out just like yours. It is a common issue and easy fix.
    You never know when it will go completely and not start at all.

    Start switch problem maybe? get out the multy meter and check both switch and solinoid when the problem is active

    Where is the solenoid located and what should the volts be?

    Located on the left side of ski right by the main fuse and wire panel. The main battery lead goes to it.
    Disconnect the battery and swap the solenoid, in less than an hour you will be done.
