    1996 Seadoo Gtx battery terminals are smoking and sparking

    i have a 1996 Seadoo GTX and when I put my battery terminals on regardless on which one i put on first it starts to spark and smoke. the ski runs fine but as long as i have the battery installed on my ski it is constantly draining and dies quick as hell. anybody know the problem?

    Bad rectifier, or bad solenoid will be your problem... unplug the rectifier and see what happens.

    Wiring harness has fallen down on the pipe somewhere and melted. I've seen it a couple times.
