I purchased my 150 etec less than 1 year ago. Since that time I have had 3 instances when the motor went into safty mode and i got stranded along way from the dock. Off course i can idle in however this took hours. No indicators were noted such as heat or oil lights. I simply started the motor and attempted to throttle up and return to port. So far the first 2 trips back to the dealer redered me a diognosis of the Throttle position senor may have caused such and issue. last week it happened for the 3rd time. No diognosis yet. Is this a random occurance or is this a common issue with ETEC motors. I love my boat and motor but im to the point of not being able to trust it to get me and my family home.
