    Having a remote issue with a 06 fx140

    I have 2 - 2006 fx140s.

    One ski it will start and run fine, but when you turn the ski off and lock with the remote it will not restart. Then after pressing the unlock button it will only do the click and the motor turns a few degrees. You can unplug the module and wait 10 seconds and plug it back in and it will start. I have tried to swap the module between skis with the same result. This wouldn't be a major issue but sometimes it will run all day starting and stopping - sometimes a few minutes.

    When the ski will not start when locked the bilge pump runs constantly - over 10 minutes. As soon as you unplug the module it shuts off.

    I am leaning towards another wiring harness, thoughts?

    I am not familiar with that particular model but the problem description suggests the electrical grounds be cleaned and checked. Not just (both of, and both ends of) the battery cables, but also the engine ground connections and every other electrical heavy connection.

    Motor only turns a few degrees
    Start solenoid (and related fuses) or perhaps the starter motor, or the cable connection to the starter motor.

    That’s just it, I would never lock them. The one with the problems locks itself at various times when you shut it off. Sometimes after 5 hours sometimes after 5 minutes.

    Hmmmmm so swapping modules between the skis and the problem stays on the same ski?
    What if you swap the ECU s?
    Starter relay maybe as well?

    Could be a ground or harness issue. start by cleaning and checking the grounds.

    I am going to check all the grounds. I donít think starter relay because it starts instantly every time it is ďunlockedĒ

    I havenít swapped the ecuís yet, I may try that tomorrow.

    I definitely remember reading or watching something on this. Itís to do with the bilge pump wiring getting corroded or similar. Might have been on YouTube. Exact same thing you described
