Etec diagnostics

Have new 250 etec s.  One motor displays code 117 low oil.  The oil is full so am wondering to clear so motor will run properly.


thanks for any info about this.

Chances are that your dealer can correct that easily. It could be either a sticky low-oil float switch or the engine needs calibration of the trim system as that may affect the oil level reading.

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.
