1997 Yamaha Waverunner not starting and no electronics
I have a 97 waverunner that is not doing anything. I have anew battery and still nothing no electronics no starting. It was working two weeks ago, tried to start it and we were able to turn it over once then nothing at all?
Mine did the samething as sooon as i got it on the trailor i tried to start it and the starter was froze up (worked fine in the water) so i replaced the starter and tried it and nothing happend. i went into the black box and figured out my starter relay burned up trying to get power to the starter. works fine now after changing relay and starter

You have a bad connection either at the battery terminals or the starter terminal. If the battery is new and fully charged and was not accidently drained overnight by another power source,then a thorough inspection of battery connections is needed. Not much else to cause this primary starting circuit problem,other than the starter itself.
If you did not previously have a security code set, you will need to set one at this time. It is an easy procedure. First, open the front hatch and remove the storage trunk. Find the group of wires coming out of the handlebar assembly. In that group, locate the blue connector with only one wire in it and disconnect it. Now, look at your multi function meter (speedo/tach), you should see the red warning light at the top between the two gauges lit. Hit and hold the mode button until you see the word "CODE" on the right gauge. At this point, enter any 4 letters you want as your security code by using the letter buttons on the right side of the MF meter. You should see them taking up each of the 4 blank lines as you enter each letter. After you have entered your 4 letters, re-connect the blue connector, put the trunk back in and close the hatch. Now your waverunner should start. If it does not, hit and hold your mode button till it says CODE on the right gauge again, and enter the same letters in the same order that you stored them, now it should say START. Hit the start button (with the safety lanyard in of course) and your engine should crank!
First, I'd check the routing on your throttle cable. make sure that at left and right turn, it has slack and no tight spots. Assuming your fuel stystem is clean, that pretty much leaves a ground/short problem somewhere. The fact that it happens at left turn tells me it's in the wiring that routes through the controls- perhaps the kill switch wiring. Something somewhere has rubbed the insulation off the wiring, and it's being moved when you turn left, so it shorts against metal. This will be the same metal point that rubbed it raw. A. Check the throttle cable routing. Move the bars back and forth, and watch for a tight spot. B. Check your wirinig harness from the bars to the main wiring harness, and look for signs of rubbing or wear.
