    Default 96 XP key or lanyard?

    I have a 96 XP. I have recently had a problem. When I plug in the key, sometimes it gives the usual 2 tones, sometimes it doesn't. I will be riding and sometimes if the key gets wiggled, the ski will die. I can take the key off, wiggle it around, etc... and I can restart the ski. My guess is, I will need to get it rekeyed.

    What do you think?

    Or is it likely that the lanyard would go bad?

    I have found the post to go bad. First do this use soapy water and wash it clean. Use nothing on it, no gresw..no lube leave it dry. Here is some information to try;

    Safety Lanyard Switch Verification;
    If 2 short beeps are not heard when installing the safety lanyard, disconnect the switch wires.
    Safety lanyard removed;
    connect the test probes to switch Black and Black/Yellow wires. It’s an open circuit, there should be no continuity.
    Connect one test probe to the White/Gray wire and the other test probe to the switch terminal. Measure resistance, it should be “0” ohm. Connect one test probe to the Black wire and the other test probe to the switch ring. Measure resistance, it must be close to “0” ohm.
    Safety lanyard on switch; connect the probes to switch Black and Black /Yellow wires. Measure resistance, it must be “0” ohm.
    Timer Verification;
    The timer is integrated into the MPEM. Always confirm that the fuses are in good condition. To confirm operation of timer, remove the safety lanyard from switch. After 5 seconds delay, depress start/stop button once. The timer should stay on for 33 seconds (for example, the gauge(s) will be activated) and than turn off.
