15 Hp HO shuts down after 3-5 min


I have a 2014' E15HPSX that starts up fine and runs for 3-5 minutes and then shuts down. When I try to start it up again the top red lights of the dash gauge light up and nothing (see attached pic not lit up). If I let it sit for 4-5 minutes it fires right up and will run for another 3-5 min and then die again. From what I have read it sounds like the EMM is malfunctioning and signaling engine overheat and shutting things down. Any thoughts on what else it could possibly be are welcomed. Also, any idea on where I can buy a EMM would be great.

Hi,

Can you be more specific on which "top lights" and what gauge, please?

 

What is the engine model designation printed on the serial number sticker?

 

Is this something that just started happening?

Was any service done just before or any unusual engine history?

Re: 15 Hp HO shuts down after 3-5 min

I am travelling currently and do not have access to the motor tag. I do know it is a E15HPSX (81003833)

 

The gauge I have is attached. I beleive the no oil, water and temp light up. This boat and motors are new to me. I bought it from a family in Ottawa 3 months ago. It has 1 season it, unfortunately the dad died suddenly. I was told that service was done on it and they did not hook up the water pump so it had to go back to the shop. That is all I know about it.

Specifically which red lights come on and stay on?
