97 Sea Doo Blowing Fuses

I have a 97 GS 718? and it blows the fuses. If I unplug the 4 pin Deutch connector that goes into the flywheel housing, it won't blow the fuse. The plug shows 12 volts on 3 of the 4 pins on the plug from the fuse block. Any ideas?

Hello; Ironhorse. Welcome to our Boats, Sailing, Pwc's & Navaigations topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Dealing with electrical systems, one has to know exactly which fuse blows. Such also needs to be known here. One fuse or more than one fuse?

Burning out a fuse indicates a shorted circuit. Most likely a shorted wire and or grounded connection. A shorted electrical componet is also likely. Easiest to check for is a poor connection, loose or non connected wire or terminal. Corrosion is also a factor and condition which can cause a shorting condition.

Any connection to the flywheel is a connection to the electical producing generator. Thus the connection will blow the fuse. Question now is does the fuse only blow when the engine is running or even while the engine isn't running?

Which can make a difference in determining more likely where the problem lies. More details need to be known. Kindly use the reply button to add any additional information or questions, etc. to this thread. Using this method also moves the topic back up to the top of the daily list automatically.

The resident boat service & repair professionals may have additional helpful information, suggestions and advice. Check back on your question several times for additional replies.
