2012 e-tec 25hp no spark.

Hello!

I have a 2012 e-tec 25hp 2-stroke that has no spark.

I own/operate a cycle/atv repair shop. I have no delusions that in no way does that qualify me to be an outboard technician. However, I thought my skillset with atvs and motorcycles would provide enough mojo for me to repair my outboard.

I went ahead and bought the evinrude software right off the bat. After hooking it up and running diagnostics, I get no errors. It shows me all my engine information, it's history, etc. I'm connecting fine and downloading data fine. It just shows everything to be fine. When I run a fire test from the software, the plugs fire no problem. It's only when cranking the engine I get nothing. I assume the coils, cdi, etc are fine then.

I understand this probably isn't a simple fix that someone could diagnose by my brief description, but would anyone have any direction they could point me in?

Thank you in advance.

Re: 2012 e-tec 25hp no spark.

First things first, you should be posting in the Owner's Zone for better visibility.  

 

Since you have no problems commnunicating and you can get spark statically while testing, crank the engine over with Evinrude Diagnostics connected and see if you are getting RPM indication on the "Monitor" page.  If you aren't, then you may have a crank position sensor problem (highly unlikely but it's easy to check).  I also recommend setting up a membership at etecownersgroup.com and posting in the I2 section.  Lot's of good helpful folks over there.
