Re: G2 Start Delay

Talk to your dealer, unless you want to gamble that it is the switch and pay for it out of your own pocket.

Re: G2 Start Delay

Well its been just shy of a year since my switch was changed and now it is doing the same thing, delay when starting. even though i'm under warranty it cost me $177 for the dealer to come to the boat. This year it will cost me another $180 to have the switch checked out and replaced.

 

Thats quite a bit of money to spent on defective switches. has Evenrude done anything to correct this problem?

I’m on my second switch and it is doing the same thing. Dealer is aware and awaiting on BRP for the 3 replacement.

Already had the key switch replaced and this new one is doing the same thing. Dealer is aware and waiting on BRP for the 3. The day keeps getting longer

Does your switch have the safety lanyard that clips onto the keyswitch or is the keyswitch and safety lanyard separate?

Re: G2 Start Delay

I have experienced similar issues with my 2017 250 G2 HO.      Just started a few weeks ago.  I found that I had to take throttle out of Neutral, and then back into Neutral position several times.   When I aksed my dealer, he said he wastn aware of any issues, but ironically had another customer with same complaint that same day.  This other customer said he had to "jiggle"  the key a little and that worked.   That has also been working for me , so far.   Dealer is very non chalant bout problems I have been reporting, and very reluctant to have me bring the boat in to resolve these issues......  Im looking for another service shop, looking very hard.

That switch should be replaced with the newer type with the separate safety switch and lanyard.
