Try jumping the waverunner using a set of jumper cables and your vehicle, this will rule out if the battery is bad. If you still have the same issue, check the connections. The connection at the starter or another place may have corroded a bit. Yet another option is to remove your spark plugs to make sure that your motor has not hydraulically locked. Once you have removed the plugs try and turn over the engine. You may need to ground out your plug wires if you have an electronic ignition to protect it. I hope this helps.

99 yamaha waverunner 1200 xlt starter stays engaged and powered on even after stop is pressed and kill switch is pulled.


The start stays engaged the entire time? I would guess it's a bad ignition switch -- it would be sending power to the starter (through the solenoid) regardless of if you switched it off.

Maybe it could be a bad starter, too. I'd start with the switch.

I have a 2000 Yamaha XL1200 waverunner. When I went to start it, the existing battery was weak. So, I put in a new battery and now it won't even try to start.


my 1998 xl 1200 has this thing it the batter is changed or if it sits for awhile you have to hit mode then something that says code should pop up on the screen then hit a b c a and then it should be able to start. but your code may be different
