Re: Evinrude Ficht Ram emm replacement

Which company did the repairs?  Most of them are experienced and reliable.  What multiple failures did you experience?

Re: Evinrude Ficht Ram emm replacement

I'd rather not name the company at this time as I am still trying to work with them on this issue. Each time there appears to be no spark. 2nd time the engine fired up a couple times then nothing - so spark. Everything was checked by an experienced mechanic and all points to the EMM which they said had failed and has since been repaired. I need to  let them know how to proceed so I'm not sure if I should go with another EMM or trust the 2nd one that has been 'repaired'. Mechanic doesn't think it matters either way.

Re: Evinrude Ficht Ram emm replacement

When I had issues with overheating - the EMM was overheating and damaged it. This was due to the cooling line running through the EMM was plugged and I didn't catch it. At the time I didn't know it was a cooling line. Sent it out  for repairs and was good for 5 years until now. Is your issue with the EMM overheating or the engine? If it is the EMM try pulling the cooling lines that run to and from it and check for plugged hoses, lines etc.

If something reads outside of its normal temperature, then the sensor is faulty, the wiring is faulty (or shorted), connections could have high resistance due to corrosion, or the interpreter - EMM is faulty.

 

If you are reading these temps on the laptop using diagnostic software, the program could be a bootleg copy, corrupted, or not made for that new a motor.

 

You need the services of a trained technician familiar with the engine.
