2002 Seadoo GTX Di Wont Start
Let me start by saying that I am self taught at working on this ski with all of your guy's help over the last year and of course with youtube videos .
I bought a 2002 seadoo gtx DI after owning several 1997 seadoo gtx's. I rebuilt the top end (1 over, values shave down to the right size at the machine shop). It fired up on the hose, and alarm went off after several minutes then went away. I dropped it in the water and she ran great for 10 minutes then died and would not start back up. towed back in. Took her home, tested the rectifier and it was skyrocketing to 18 to 20 volts on idle. Changed the rectifier and ran it on the hose. 14.50 on idle 14.48 at 3000 rpm... Into the water she went.. ran for 10 minutes and she died. Towed back in. took her back home and tested the battery. Bad cell. Bought a new battery and tested it on the hose. 14.48 at idle, 14. 39 at 3000 rpm... back to the water. Ran it for 15 minutes just off the doc with wire clips to the battery and clipped to a volt meter.. put it in neutral and held it at 3500 rpm 14.39 at 3500 rpm 14.55 at idle... after 15 minutes, meter off and off I went. road for 10 minutes at 3500 to 5700 between here and there and then she shut down, those this time it was not an instant shut down like the first two time. It was as if she was running out of fuel. when I tried to restart it acted as if it had a weak battery and would not start. Towed in. When I got home the battery was at 12.55. I charge the battery and unlike before, not it will not start. It turns over and acts as if its not getting fuel or spark. One last note... each of the other time it stopped running, as soon as I got home and charged the battery she would start and run on the hose. This time she does not start. Just acts like she wants to but does not have fuel reaching her or no spark. I don't know what to test first in a logical order and I don't want to start taking parts off my other 2002 gtx di for testing at random. Would greatly appreciate some help.
