1997 GTX dead after winter
I have had this 1997 GTX for the past 4 years. Last year while riding at any given RPM it would just go dead. I could unplug the key "for lack of a better word" and it would start right back up and run fine. This only happened maybe 4 times all last summer.
But was probably the start to my issue.
Put the battery back in the boat and went to start it and I had nothing. No beep, nothing. Check voltage and I have 12.37 volts all the way to the little red wire out of the coil box "again, I do not know the correct name". I checked the fuse in the "coil box" and the two that are in with the computer. All three were good.
I am guessing it is a wire disconnect but the question is where to start to look and what systems can I check to eliminate possibilities. Looking at all the plugs and wire terminals and everything look great. No sign of corrosion. Not sure why it ran fine when I winterized it and now it is dead. Does anyone know how to check the key or socket that it goes on? I only have one key with this GTX. If I plug my XP key in will it at least peep?
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
