SeaDoo Older MPEM (wired) Test Instructions

The tables below provide the test information to determine if a wired MPEM is in specification. While the test will positively verify a faulty MPEM if the observed readings are outside the specification range, it is a static test. The MPEM could test within specifications during a static test and still be faulty under dynamic operating conditions. A high quality ohm meter should be utilized for these tests and all connections to the MPEM should be disconnected. Failure to completely disconnect all the MPEM connections could ruin the ohm meter.
