    Need help with RXP X 255

    I have a 2008 Seadoo RXP X 255 that has never given me a problem till today. Rode the ski for approximately 45 min today with no issue then all the sudden the buzzer went off and ski went in to limp mode. Kill the engine and restart, the motor will idle all day long but the minute you give it gas another alarm and ski goes back into limp mode. Checked the oil and coolant and all looks good. Any idea what could be the problem?

    Well, unless it is something obvious, like a piston sticking out of the block, we would need the code.

    Do know someone who has a Candoo?
    Your problem could be something as simple as a bad sensor, and I hate to keep saying it but without the code

    Visually inspect all hoses, wiring etc. If you can't find anything then check codes with Buds/CandooPro etc.
    Or fix the gauge

    My son has been meaning to change the cluster but hasn’t done it yet. I checked all the hoses and wiring and everything looks normal. I will try and get the code. Crazy thing is it only happens in the water. You can run the ski on the hose with no problems reving the motor and everything
