Looking for input on my 2012 vlx

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey everyone, I was looking around the forums and couldn’t find anything directly related to my issue so I apologize in advance if it’s out there and I missed it. I had my 12 vlx on the lake today and got caught in a pretty bad storm. As we were heading home spray from the waves were coming into the boat pretty badly. About a mile from home a wave splashed up pretty good and came across the boat and then the boat died. I was able to restart it only to have it happen on the next wave. After that I was unable to start the boat with the Touch screen. The start engine button stays yellow and my password will not work. I’ve never seen it yellow until today, normally it’s red then after the code it’s blue. I was able to start the boat with the key and we got it back but then it wouldn’t shut off unless I pulled the kill switch cord. I am now getting a power wedge error saying it needs to be reset aswell as service required notice in that top screen. The bilge worked the whole Time and the boat didn’t take in a ton of water. Hoping someone could provide some input as to why the start button is yellow and why my password suddenly wouldn’t work. Thanks in  advance!

The main power button is often bad. Amazon has them cheap, I used to keep a spare in my 12 VLX after I changed it the first time. Never needed the spare.
