Re: New g2 problems

I brought a G2 300 in 2016 have 70 hours on it. It is truly an amazing motor. I still carnt belive that I can run 60mph in a 26' style cigarette boat fully loaded. Cruising at 45 I'm getting 3.2 miles a gallon. Steering does seem to be hard on and off though and I got a code 216 so have called dealer to have it fixed.

Re: New g2 problems

Problems, yes, too many to list. Just came out of the shop a couple of weeks ago with 3 warranty claims and I am having to pull it out of dry stack tomorrow and take it to the dealer again. The engine shuts off with no warning, happened 3 times on Saturday nearly throwing my crew out of the boat, fault code 114. Still have the excessive spark knock fault codes even with the computer reprogram. Huge mistake buying the G2!

Re: New g2 problems

Fault code 114 is loss of NMEA network. This is likely a rigging problem, loose CANBUS connection somewhere.

Re: New g2 problems

Understood, rigging has accounted for about 40% of my problems. Dealer tech was clueless on this install.

Re: New g2 problems

I have 160.3 hours on my motors .

1)So far we stripped a power steering coupler which was originally plastic and they have switched to aluminum. however it is now hard to turn to one side periodicly which is a pain.

2) the 7 inch Icon now changes screens on its own.

3) the starboard motor raises on its own periodicly which is where the powersteering is located.

4) all my chrome accents are coroding and turning green. I wash my engine down with saltway after every use.

 

the engines were installed 8/16. I like them but I have to get it back to the dealer to work out a few more kinks.

Re: New g2 problems

BWB, Trust me I have, got them on speed dial now!!!!!!! Hopefully we can get someone from BRP factory out to my boat to resolve these problems. The rigging issues were resolved by Pat from BRP months ago, now it is electrical and motor issues.

Re: New g2 problems

I have a n ETEC 250 HO bought in late  April ,  and many of the steering issues described in this thread sound familar,  just got back from a long trip and 3/4 of the way through got an alarm : DPS Motor Open.    What does this mean, and how complicated of a fix is this.  Ive taken the boat out maybe 10 times ,   and did not expect to be having issues.
