Good day all, I have a 6/2011 E30DRSINC tiller steer outboard. I was coming back in to marina when engine died and would not restart with a no spark condition. I have checked main fuse and it has power through fuse. From what I can tell I am missing the 12v signal to purple wire at emm. I have looked through harness and can't find where purple wire begins to get this 12v signal. Everyone is saying key switch, but this tiller steer doesn't have a key switch and there are NO purple wires anywhere in tiller harness. Where do I go from here and please don't say evinrude dealer. I will toss this in the bay and buy a different manufacturer if I get that answer. I have had nothing but problems with this from day 1 and now that it's out of warranty I am stuck with repair bill. I just need a little help finding voltage loss and then maybe I can get back to my cast and blast days before duck season is over. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Your model number states that the motor is a 2012.
Check the operation of your on-engine neutral switch
