Evinrude 300 G-2

I had a new 300 G-2 professionally put  on a new Dusky boat that I just bought. I brought it home and before i could even get it in the water i tried to turn on the engine and got a code 136 saying it was waiting for neutral. IT WAS IN NEUTRAL!! Then after  turning it off and on trying to get it to go away I got a code 151. WHAT THE _ _ _ _ !!!  I thought this engine was suppossed to be the best of the best and after finding this forum I am finding that there are a lot of people getting the same errors. Any suggestions except the obvious one which is bring it back to the guy I got it from and have them fix it ?

We are sorry to hear that your new Evinrude has not lived up to your expectations.   

 

Was the motor installed by an authorized Evinrude dealer or by someone else and did you sign and recieve a copy of the Pre-delivery information (PDI) form? That is the document stating that the dealer installed the motor correctly and tested it. 

 

The code 136 is for excessive exhaust temperature. Depending on your engine's model and serial there may be a service bulletin concerning an updated temperature sensor to eliminate false alarms. 

 

We do recommend that you return to your authorized dealer to have your motor inspected and tested to avoid any future situations like this. If you have issues with the dealer or getting it serviced, please send an email to brp.care@brp.com with the serial number, dealer name, and your contact information so we can look into this for you. 

 

Again please accept our apologies for inconveniences that you experienced. Be assured that we will do everything we can to get you back on the water and enjoying your new boat and motor.

Re: Evinrude 300 G-2

Actually it was a  "code 36 looking for neutral " and a code 151. typoo on the 136. Also yes it was done by a licenced professional dealership. I will ask for the PDI form because I did not get that to my knowledge.

 

I was told that because the engine is fly by wire it developes a memory and initially it will flash a code but the important thing is that it goes away. Does that make sence?

 

lastley is there a document that showes the codes and what they mean?

OK, that makes more sense.  There are also updates for that problem, again depending on serial number and model number. If your motor was affected by them it should have been taken care of before delivery. The dealer tech can take advantage of Evinrude's dealer support services if they have any problems with diagnosis or repair.

 

The PDI is a very important record and must be kept on file for the dealer to register the engine for warranty in your name plus you need a copy for yourself.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact brp.care@brp.com should you have any issues getting the motor checked out and operating correctly.

The buzzing or whining sound you hear for about 10 seconds is the normal operation of the electric fuel pump(s) priming the engine for starting.  Every brand of higher horsepower low-emission computer-controlled outboards have that type of priming action for their pressurized fuel systems.

 

We are glad to hear that everything is running well for you. 

 

Merry Christmas

The pumps operate while the engine is running but you might not hear them over the sound of the motor.

Re: Evinrude 300 G-2

Ok so here is the newest problem with this engine. After all the updates were done to this motor the marine center took the boat for a sea trial. they said they made a couple of turns then all the sudden they could not turn the boat. It would only turn one way then back to straite. They called me and said that the Helix dropped out of it proper location. ARE YOU F_______G KIDDING ME !!!!! I have owned this brand new engine on my boat for almost 2 months and have taken it out 1 time. What a piece of CRAP. I DEFINENTLY MADE A TERRIBLE DECISSION TO BUY THIS MOTOR!!!! I NEW I SHOULD OF WENT WITH A YAMAHA. Now they have to get a new steering unit that thank GOD it is under warrenty and wait even more time. Thanks Evenrude for putting out a piece of crap engine before the bugs were worked out. You should be ashamed of this product.........  At this point i would accept a full refunde and let me take my money and get a Yamaha!!!
