Re: E300 dpxscs

You have to take into account "first", "last", and "times". A no oil code could have been triggered 20 times for 30 seconds each due to air bubbles. Often this code is set a few times during the initial engine priming.

Not to worry, your motor can run up to 5 hours with no oil. Your 10 minutes is probably the total time of several minor incidents

Re: E300 dpxscs

Ok, a little less worried now, gotta replace num 2 injector.though yesterday I static tested again and it fired every time. I couldn’t get the tach to work by running the test, and the system check didn’t work either but when I turn key on they light up and beep

Re: E300 dpxscs

On the system check tach the "bulb test" is an internal function of the tach. Set a tach on a table, connect just the power wires and it will light up the lights in a self test.
The wiring harness has one plug on the dash end for the tach but on the engine end there are 3 connectors. Trim, ignition switch, and a tach connector.

Re: E300 dpxscs

Ok so tach wire might not be hooked up or broken. Thank you

Re: E300 dpxscs

So do I check continuity between gray wire at EMM and plug at Tach? Also did static test three times on num 2 injector and it worked every time. Shows no current faults

You can check continuity but a frequency test or use the software and the tach calibration feature are better and more complete.

 

 

 

Connect the red meter lead to the tachometer purple
wire and the black meter lead to the tachometer
black wire (key ON, outboard NOT running).


• If meter shows battery voltage, go to next step.
• If meter shows less than battery voltage, check
the purple, red/purple, and black wiring circuits;
fuse, key switch, and battery connections.


Disconnect gray and black wires at tachometer.
Set Fluke 29 Series II meter, or equivalent, to Hz
scale. Connect meter between gray wire and
black wire. With outboard running at 1000 RPM,
meter should indicate 90 to 105 Hz.


• If meter reads 90 to 105 Hz, replace tachometer.
• If meter reads low or no signal, confirm output
on gray wire at pin 16 of EMM J1-A connector.


– Reading OK – Check condition of tachometer
circuit (gray wire). Repair as needed.
– Reading not OK – Check connection at EMM;
replace faulty EMM.
