Re: 60 ETEC Safety Kill Switch Help Needed Please !

The same procedure if your car will crank over but not start, you have to find out if it is lack of fuel or ignition, and troubleshoot from there.


A factory service manual is invaluable if you plan on doing work yourself.





"There is never just one thing wrong with a boat";

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.

Re: 60 ETEC Safety Kill Switch Help Needed Please !

I have confirmed fuel and fire from both plugs. Is there a chance youve seen a scenerio in the past where this " test " procedure could have tripped a sensor or allowed a connection to stay open by any means? Thank you
