Water Pressure Reading

I have a 2 month old E-Tec G2225 HP--just a few hours on it so far and still learning.

I have a photo of the 4.3" display showing Water Pressure=Zero PSA (I get an unexpected error when I try to upload the jpg).  I used to monitor the water pressure on previous engines.  The response from the dealer is below.  Should I have a reading on the Water Pressure on a brand new engine or is this some kind of option I had to aks for?


Dealer response:

"In order to show water pressure numbers on the display, there is an electrical adapter that changes the internal water pressure in the engine block to a digital signal that will then be displayed on the screen. I think that it can be added to your engine fairly easily, but will have to be hooked up to the diagnostic computer to set the emm to recognize the new device in the system.  Your engine with the dual pick up screens on the gearcase should not have ‘pressure issues"

This accessory sensor kit has to be installed on the motor and a tech with the laptop software has to program it into the EMM

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
