Just picked the 03 Virage up to mess with, as it wasn't running from PO. This my 1st jet ski and after looking inside kinda lost. When I got home battery was @5 volts. No water so charged overnight and got up to 12 volts.
Went to try and start nothing so checked fuses 1 blown replaced now gauge lites up , no start just a click. Noticed the connector to the solenoid was lose but it just turns won't tighten.
Could that be the problem?

Check the voltage when trying to start it. Needs to be better than 10.5-11 when you hit the button. Is it a single click, or rapid clicking ?

It may be cross threaded. Try removing it with the cable, secure the relay to a bench, put a wrench on it, and hit the wrench with a hammer or something. The fast shock may loosen it. If not your going to have to cut the nut.

Replaced the solenoid, battery cutoff and buttons on handle bar and got it to fire and ran just a bit. Question is now why is the Forward / Reverse lever so hard to move. It seems to be binding up. Where to check??
