Waverunner III Quits Running

5797 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bornfree
I have a 1995 Waverunner III and it has a problem. Last year, I was riding it and it just quit. Would not crank. I figured it must be a battery since it was installed in 2004. Replaced the battery and spark plugs (yearly maintenance) and it ran fine for 10 to 15 minutes.

Now, it just dies. It will run for 30 seconds and they just die. Sometimes it will crank and start, other times it will not crank for 30 seconds then crank and start fine, run for 15 seconds or so and then die again.

Any suggestions? Over heating maybe? I'm confused by the not cranking part. Any help would be appreciated.

Check the overheat switch, my 1992 650 would start than die after 5 minutes and would not start,I would have spark for the first few turns than none,I would let her sit for a hour and would start up and again die, check that you have spark always as turning over. If your starder is not working I would check the overheat switch for sure or kill switch. It turn out in my case that it was the CDI,got the entire box with CDI on ebay for $150.00 dealer price for CDI $340.00, and I think the guy has another one for sale,hope this helps, Bornfree
