Moter Dies

I have a 2016 g2 250 HP Evenrude that dies at random times with no codes going off. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Re: Moter Dies

It could be either a fuel or electrical malfunction and that is what troubleshooting entails - determining which system is at fault and narrowing it down to the individual component(s).

The crankshaft position sensor - CPS - is one item that can shut a motor off instantly and not generate an error code, as can a plugged gas tank vent, or a malfunctioning emergency stop circuit,

A dealer with the appropriate test equipment and trained technician would be recommended your best choice

If your motor is within its warranty period. you will need to contact your dealer for service.

Re: Moter Dies

I have exactly the same problem. You're not alone.

 

For me it occurs at low revs when I’m manoeuvring to dock or slide into the lift.

 

It simply cuts out! It will start again however when in close proximity of fixed objects (dock, other boats, etc.) losing power is serious.

 

Evenrude – what’s going on?

Follow up to my moter dies at random times. My boat was at the dealer for 5 weeks for troubleshooting. They determind the cause was a bad steering moduel. Two trips to the lake and no problems so far. Evenrude covered the cost of the repairs with no hassles. Thanks

Thank you for letting us know that your motor is fixed and operational. Too many times we never hear back what the end result turned out to be.
