Re: 08 E-Tec Starting issues

check wires at solenoid one is battery positive from the key switch.  the other is negative from.emm. if you have negative from the emm and you are not requesting start then you probably have bad emm. 1800.00 for new and then pay dealer to program it.

***************

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.

Re: 08 E-Tec Starting issues

It ended up being bad emm. Sold it 2 years ago and cut my losses. I will never trust another etec and they have lost me as a customer.
