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

hi there it sounds like the switch gear need pulling apart and the copper contacts cleaned as it sounds like the kill switch is closed up and the starter button contacts need cleaning as well also check to see if the stater soliniod might need a cleanup where the wires go,also check your fuses to see if there contacting alright if you ride in all weather or the bike sits outside it can have these problems as mouisture gets into everything. hope this helps cheers pete
You'll need to crawl under the car and check for power on the small terminal of the stater with the key in the crank position.
Knowing if you have power there will help to give you a direction to go in.
If you don't have a test light or a multi meter, you can jump the large wire at the starter to the small wi at the stater with the key in the off position. If the starter works than you'll need to focus on wiring. If the starter doesn't work replace it.
Follow the wire back from the starter. It should bring you to the relay. Many starter relays have 3 wire going to them. Usually, 1 smaller wire, and 2 larger wires. One wire will be power from the battery. The smaller wire will have power when the key is turned to start. The third wire will carry the battery voltage to the starter during starting. good luck
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.
I have a 96 Chevy Lumina with an electric sliding side door. A few weeks ago we started having problems with it. I went to work and when I got ready to leave it would not start. I had to have it jumped. Got home and let it set over the Thanksgiving weekend. Went to start it the Mon/Tues after and nothing. Let it set another week and still nothing. We jumped it again and it took 15 minutes to get enough of a charge in the battery to get it started. Took it to a battery store and they checked the battery and said that was the problem. We replaced the battery (it wasn't that old) and went home. A few days later it wouldn't start again. Could this problem have anything to do with the electric slinding door? if so, any suggetions on how to fix it?
there is a starter relay in the relay box. check for power going to the relay box , also have your check for voltage going to the starter . check for ing feed at the small wire also . before replacing any more parts , i would think that all off this was done the frist time?
check the alternator it supplies juice to the battery while running all the electrical needs for your car if your alternator is fine you might have a dead cell in your battery.take it to an auto supply store and have it checked out usually it's free.
