2017 VLX 22ft Wakesetter


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a 2017 VLX. Having problems with my power button and start button not powering up. I was sitting in idle in the middle of the lake, could not get the boat to start. Had to call for a tow back to the marina, thank goodness for towing coverage. It is not a problem with my batteries or cable. any advise would be helpful. Thanks

We had that happen - just turn the batteries off, let it sit for a minute or so, then turn the batteries on and power everything back up.  Should work.

The power button itself could be going bad. 
 

I know you said its not a problem with your batteries or cables, but I’d double check all connections and the battery switch. Those can go bad too.

Remove them, clean and reinstall.  While you can see the outside of a terminal connector, you can't see any hidden corrosion between the contacts.

I tried shutting down the batteries, let it sit for about 10 minutes, still nothing happened. Thanks
