Re: E tec fault codes

BTW Bill, the codes are not listed in the service manual received when engines were purchased. It would be a huge help if the manuals did have them. If not for this site, owners would have to o choice but to pay a marine mechanic for their time running the diagnostic computer test. So this site is a huge necessity for most owners. I thank you for that.

Re: E tec fault codes

I think you mean the codes are not explained in the operator's guide that you received with the motor.

 

The factory service manual and the Evinrude diagnostic software for your motor contain that information about fault codes.

 

If you have  the 4.3 or 7.0 digital display, I believe the codes come up on the screen if they are activated.

 

With today's emission regulations, modern low emission engines of all makes are now computer controlled and require laptops or specialized equipment and extensive training to service and maintain. They are not like your grandfather's motor that could be fixed with only a screwdriver and an adjustable wrench.

The nice thing about this site is you do not have to write the same question multiple times.

 

Someone will be along when the weekend is over.

Re: E tec fault codes

Does anyone knows what error 229 means? It says that it is a fault in the RAVE system, that I have to lower my RPM.
