Re: New g2 problems

The sophisticated diagnostic system that your engine has already informed you of the problem. That makes it super easy for the dealer to perform the warranty repair for you.  Likely there is an open circuit inside the hydraulic assist motor or a connection problem with a wire.

There is also a DPS control module in the circuit.

Re: New g2 problems

What display or gauge do you have on your dash and what does it say exactly when you start up the motor and put it into gear?  Is there anything else that we should know about your boat, engine rigging, NMEA2000 network items, etc.?

Has your dealer done any diagnosis and computer engine reports on this situation?

Re: New g2 problems

 

 

A code 180 means that it takes too much effort to move the throttle plate, most often from something jammed in the intake.

 

On a G2 there are several plastic plugs on the top of the covers  that seal the air passageways and if not installed securely, can come loose and get sucked into the throttle mechansim.

 

See your dealer to be sure and for safe removal without damaging anything if that is the case.

Re: New g2 problems

Hello All!
This is my first post! I am not an Evinrude G2 owner. However, I am a boat owner. My question to this thread is:
Will it be safe to assume that mechanical/electronic issues that appeared in 2017-20108 G2 models were taken into consideration and are corrected so that the later or 2019 or 2020 models are “”immune” to these problems?
For example, a problem in a 2017 G2 model that led to the replacement of the powerhead with updated parts, will this updated powerhead be used in the newer G2 models? Thanks!

All updates and improvements are incorporated into the production motors.
