We're sorry to read about your concerns in regards to your Evinrude motor. Please send your VIN, the name
of your dealer and more information to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd like to look into this for you.
Have you had your motor checked over by a dealer technician for your charging malfunction yet?
What is the engine model number ?
Can you give us more details, such as type of boat, any unusual wiring situations in the past, are there wing nuts on the battery or batteries, has any work been done to the boat or motor previous to the charging problem? The more information, the more we can assist or advise.
"There is never just one thing wrong with a boat";
-- Travis McGee, main character in a book series by John D. McDonald
The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
