Hey all, has anyone ever had this issue? After last nights rain, my sled will randomly activate the ignition/reverse button. This seems like water got into it and I may consider replacing the ignition button. Any thoughts? 2016 skidoo carb 600

So the sled just randomly starts up when the water shorts out the switch? [crazy] That's scary! Can't say I've had that happen or heard of it. How did you happen to catch it?

yeah I don't like that at all.  I had to move the sleds off my trailer today and ran into the issue.  It's actually sort of funny, I hit the throttle and it switched to reverse and flew backwards.  I immediately hauled it to the dealer and they're taking a look.  I'm OK at fixing mechanical stuff, but I can't make heads or tails of electronics.  Hopefully they get that resolved.  I'm really glad that it happened now, since that would be terrible out in the woods somewhere.  I'm actually quite happy that we got all of that rain now, otherwise my on-switch would be nice and dry, functioning fine.

Did the dealer figure out what the problem was? Bad start/reverse switch?
