Great info, thank you! I have forwarded all of this on to the dealer to work on.

Will post the results as soon as I hear back.

I’m kind of a car guy.. so bear with me… boats are not so indifferent (and yes, I installed the engine and outdrive both in my Maxum... so I’m not new….. )

Push button starting is nothing new and is not so complex. The ONLY thing it does is complete the circuit to the trigger lead at the starter. I could wire a push button start on my 1970 Chevelle in about 10 minutes. Same goes for my 95 SBR 2100 but there is no point.

With newer technology they have proximity fobs and such that activate everything in order for the “push button” to become enabled. 2002 I’m just guessing, not so mush. I would actually love to have a look at this. Probably nothing more than an old burnt out relay.

Use a test light… continuity is continuity… if the “push button” makes a connection… the problem is further down the line. TRACE the issue, FOLLOW the power.. and find out where it stops. Electrical problems are nothing if you know what you are doing….. AND cost thousand’s if you don’t.

Darren if you review post # 9 I told the OP how to determine if the push button system was supplying 12V to the ignition and then starter. If both of these test good then he needs to work back towards the engine (ignition or starter/soleniod issue) else problem is keypad or filter module (see his pictures).

BTY: OP is having this fixed by a shop, however they don't seem to know how to troubleshoot this maxum specific system.

The boat does start on a remote start box attached at the engine, so it is isolated to the dash area. I have located the source to obtain the unit (MCIU), ATS bought the line from Siemens VDO. I am going to try to find a keypad as well. Hopefully getting closer!

codeman671 - did you ever locate parts to solve your problem? I have the same problem with my 2100 SD: combination to keyless start no longer functions, but the rest of the keypad seems to work.

BreezyPoint welcome aboard.

Codeman never came back with results.

If a keypad can not be found a keyed ignition switch can be wired in to replace it.
