98 gts seadoo no beep no start no nothing


New Member
I recently purchased this 98 seadoo gsx. The lady I purchased from had no idea if it ever ran or what's wrong with it. It looks to be in great shape very clean inside and out. When I go to start it with dess key there are no beeps but dash display turns on, when I press start button nothing happens no clicking nothing at all. I checked over all the fuses they all look good. I also bought new battery did not help. After doing some research people say could be bad buzzer or start/kill switch. Or might need to have key re programming.

Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to fix? I don't really want to spend a bunch of money on lots of parts or mechanics only 18 and hoping to get this running for the summer thanks.

Without the key on the Dess post, if you push the start/stop button does the info gauge come on? It if does with you put the key on the Dess post, I'd start with a new start/stop button. I had the same issue on a 2000 GTX.
Best thing to do is replace the beeper. Then you will know if it recognizes the key. Without knowing that you will be in the dark.
