    Rxt 2007 dess key problem

    Hi All,
    having problem with my DESS KEY, Tried to start the ski today after replacing battery and it gives 1 long beep then get the 4 short beeps, when I hit the start button it sounds like the fuel pump kicks in but it wont turn over. When I try the Lerner Key it gives 1 long beep then 2 short beeps and fires up ok. Anyone had the same problem??

    Cheers
    Colin

    Wrong key or it needs to be reprogramed.

    Same key I used last time out, wonder why the fuel pump would kick in if the key needed reprogramming??

    The key might have gone bad, they do fail. Have you tried taking it off the post and reinstalling it several times? I have a ski that does that but when I reinstall the key a couple times, I get the two beeps.

    The four beeps after the one long beep simply means you left the key on the post.

    check the INSIDE of the key. And for sure try to slap and rockit trick . Clean the post with a scotchbrite pad "Sometimes" a tang folds over and the key cannot be read. Key magnet may have gone weak or the post micro switch is about to go south and the weak magnet isn't enough now.

    if the battery was out for several months there is also a slim possibility the ecu forgot that particular key. It typically just forget that a ski has trim function.

    reprogramming a key isn't a big deal, if it is in your circumstance, then a $400 candoo pro will make is a little less of a big deal and give you some other functionality . ( forum store sells it)

    Yes I’ve tried it more than 10 times over the last few days but still the same, the Lerner key
    does the long beep but starts first turn and gives 1beep once started but runs ok. I Think it’s weird that the fuel pump cycles when I hit the start button with the DESS key but doesn’t turn over. Thanks for your help
