2001 Evinrude Ficht 225hp ram injection issues

I recently purchased a boat with 2- 2001 evinrude ficht ram injection 225hp engines.  I am having an issue where, after running them for a while, I shut them off and try to turn them back on and get the "check engine", "Hot" and "no oil" lights all come on at the same time.  No codes are recorded when I check it with the diagnosic software. It won’t start for a while like the emm is hot and must cool down. While running the engine and software, I will have this issue even if the emm reads around 120F (from the software). But it does show that it’s been up to around 195F in the past.  I am certain that I am getting good water flow to and through the emm and vapor separator. This will happen to either engine but seems to happen to the port side engine a lot. 

 

Sometimes the engine will shut completely off while running and when I turn the key to the start position, I get no lights at all. This is usually if I’m running for a while thought. Eventually I’ll get the 3 lights, and after waiting a while, I’ll be able to start them again.  They do not both shut off at the same time but independently from one another.  Again, this is a boat that I just bought a few months ago so I am unsure what they have been through in the past.  Has anyone else seen all 3 lights come on at the same time like this?  Any information/suggestions will help before i send the EMMs to DFI technologies.  Thanks!!

Anytime there are those three warning lights staying on, there is an internal problem inside the EMM. There are companies that repair those but be aware that they are not associated with Evinrude in any way.
