2004 HO FX No Beeps and red "warning" Light flashing

I can't figure out why the audible beeps that are supposed to work when I press the lock or unlock button on the remote don't sound. In addition, I get a red "warning" light flashing on the front console. This all happens without even trying to start the engine, which at this point, I'm not sure I should try. Any ideas on this one would really be appreciated. I should mention that I have had the ski in the garage for the past two years and I recently washed it down, not sure if water caused this. Thanks in advance.

If its giving a warning before it starts, it usually means you have a short or bad sensor or bad sensor connection. Check the fuses. You may have gotten a wiring connection wet, or they may be corroded from the long term storage. I'd pull loose as many wiring connections you can get to and spray them with some dielectric anti-corrosive spray then re-connect them a couple of times to polish the connector pins. Be sure the battery is fully charged (should show 13+ volts), and check the connections to be sure there is no corrosion, and they should be real tight (wrench, not screw-driver).

Then try again. There should be another symbol lighting up on the dash to give an indication of where the problem is, or a two digit error code. Check to be sure the impeller has not locked up.

Marioztired,as ernest did a nice job answering you question! ... i would add just to you to use corrosion X marine on the connectors... then user air pressure to blow it of (along with some contaminate) for each connector and then use silicone dielectric on each before putting it back again...... If problem continues, it may be wise to go to a shop that have the computer to read which error code its giving... maybe 50 bucks the guy may charge just for reading the error but will cost you a lot less time and you will be spot on...there are so many thing that can give you a warning light.... and as ernest said, maybe it have another symbol on the dash, a small one , that may give you a better clue...
