Issues with Malibu wakesetter 2003 engine and power just won’t start

Recommended Posts

Hello, so I’ve had an issue with my Malibu wakesetter and the engine or power on it just won’t start I haven’t used it for 5 months or so but last time it was used was when it was being serviced I can’t figure out what would be wrong with it. The battery is charged and is fresh but nothing will work. Any thoughts? I’m going away to Mildura tomorrow so if you have any thoughts please respond asap

So nothing works as in gauges, radio, lights?  Does it even turn over?  Can you hear the fuel pump spin up?

Check battery connections, ground, lanyard, shifter in neutral?

Here is a great read:

Yep, definitely check the no-start troubleshooting guide...if nothing at all works, I'd first check the battery master/isolation switch.  Assuming it has one installed, perhaps the folks that serviced the boat turned it off as a courtesy.  Do you have one, and do you normally use it?

The devil here is in the details. Nothing works could mean different things.  The more clearly and exactly you can describe the problem will determine the solution or problem.    For example, I turned the key and nothing at all happened, dead, no gauges no radio, no lights nothing vs it cranks and does not fire
