 What do you mean by official replay ? 

 

 The code 1 means that  #1 cyinder has experienced detonation and adding fuel and retarding spark has not stopped it.  It is most often caused by stale or poor fuel quality, problems with fuel delivery volume from the boat  ( filters, kinked lines, debris, etc. )  or the motor running lean for some reason.  Having too large a pitch prop - overpropping - may also contribute to detonation issues.

 

  Your dealer technician should be able to acertain the problem andcorrect it.

I would strongly entertain looking for an other dealer. That code is indication that somthing  is very wrong and could result in a catastrophic failure if not analyzed properly.

A print out of the engine report would show all the stored service codes along with the engine's operating history. Either your dealer or another one can do that for you.

My 250 did the same exact thing. Not sure why. I may have had the engine trimmed to much? Immediately shut the engine down and reported it to my dealer. Never has been an issue again.
