Re: 25hp evinrude etec

Does it go into safe mode while it is running faster than idle?
You said 5 seconds, does it come out of safe mode while running without restarting?

Re: 25hp evinrude etec

I can run 10 hour before he fall in safe mode.. and when he goes in safe mode 5 seconds after i can go full speed for next 8 or 20 hours before he do again for 5 seconds and after full speed again

Re: 25hp evinrude etec

It would take a dealer with the diagnostic software to see why (what code) is putting it into safe mode. I work on over 200 of these engines and have not seen that condition.
To help be sure it is safe mode, that would drop your engine to 1200 rpm but it would run smoothly at 1200. If an ignition coil or injector were failing you would lose a lot of engine speed but it would run rough.

That is not a genuine Evinrude diagnostic software tester. Many are from overseas and are either bootleg copies or corrupted software from accounts of purchasers.

We cannot and do not condone those items and do not offer any help or support for them.

Re: 25hp evinrude etec

how do you explain that my engine for 5 seconds falls in safe mode and that after that I find all the power for a weekend and falls into safe mode, yet it seems to take its gas well, the water pump out well .. I noticed he does it more when the water is cold .. short it's been 3 years that he does it and he leaves and rolls like a new apart once in a weekend for 5 seconds he falls 1200rpm
