Re: '09 Etec 200 HO hot alarm when idling

In idle gear it’s showing 5psi but maybe the gauge is wrong. The needle won’t drop bellow 3.

[ Edited ]

Does it read 3psi with the motor off?  If so, get a new gauge

Yup it does.  Where do I find this part online?  Is it an Evinrude product?  Or do I go to the boat manufacturer?

Re: '09 Etec 200 HO hot alarm when idling

Thanks Bill but I ended up calling boats.net and they ordered me one. Suppose to be here middle of next week.

Bill, do you think the gauges in a Lowrance HDS gen 3 would substitute for the analog type? I can probably rig that up right away

Re: '09 Etec 200 HO hot alarm when idling

It would cost you a lot more than just replacing an analog gauge in the dash. You would need the pressure sensor installed plus the dealer programming or a pressure transducer and have it programmed into the network.

Re: '09 Etec 200 HO hot alarm when idling

I just did this on my motor... $300 to see water pressure. Hoping it saves me $$$ in the long run.

Re: '09 Etec 200 HO hot alarm when idling

This saga is still going on.   I took it to a mechanic to have them pull to the codes letting me kknow if the engine is indeed over heating or if there could be an issue with teh EMM.  They decided to change the Water Pump and a T-Stat and send me on my way.  They said the T-stat spring was bad and the water pump gromet wasnt seated.  After their repairs  I sitll get the hot alarm while I am idling for long.  If I push some water at about 1200-1500RPM it pops the hat alarm a little faster.

 

I installed ultra high flow intake just to see if that would help.  my pressure flutacutes between 1PSI low and the bottom end of the accetable scale. 

 

This is endlessly frustrating.
