2013 Etec 40HP won't run

Hi, I previuosly posted on owners zone.


I ran my boat for a couple of minutes then it stalled because the fuel line to tank was not attached. Engine stalled, so noticing that tank to engine line was not attached I connected it, primed it but engine would not run. It did however idle roughly for a minute or so each time I tried to restart.


I just bought boat with this engine which only had 15 hrs of operation. Any ideas as to why it would not run after running out of gas ? Previous owner said it is a computer reset issue. 


Any help much appreciated.
