Pull the valve cover on the dead head. Check the connections on both sides. From my understanding they will short/burn out frequently. I lost 2 cylinders last week, popped the cover and it was quite apearent that it had bricked itself. I just scored a couple off amazon for a really good price but shipping was slow (took about 2 weeks to get here). They hadn't arrived by the time this problem happened and I picked up one from my local napa for $78.... Less then many online sources but more then what I paid for on amazon ($47). Now ill have an extra waiting for Armageddon to happen.
It's a pretty painless job except for the very back valve cover bolt on the P side.

If you're wondering about the handle... Creekfreak... I paddle hard, steep, whitewater. It's been my online handle for about 15 years.
