2020 200hp G2 problem!

My new outboard (and at least 3 others I know of) are experiencing the same shut down issues for no reason. Not getting any obvious fault codes or warnings. We have all reached out to Evinrude to try and get help to no avail. My issue has gone on for 5 months and Evinrude has virtually ignored my warranty case that was opened up in early June. Can anyone help??

Check your key switch harness, there was a service bulletin about hesitating on starting and often sudden shutdowns. The key switch harness should be gray colored. If black, see your dealer.

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.
