Winterize twin engine etec g2

Hi,

 

   I own a dual engine etec g2 pontoon with twin 300HP engines. While pulling the boat out of the water this year for the first time I winterized engine 1 with out issue. When I chose engine 2 the "winterize" button would not trigger the process no matter how many times I touched the button. Has anyone else expereinced this?

I can assume that the second tach and its display screen information work OK on the #2 engine, right?

 

Try winterizing using the throttle method described on page 42 of the operator's guide.

Everything else on the ICON display functions properly (TACH, etc), when pressing the winterize button on the screen for engine 1 the winterize process executed properly, after selecting engine 2 I press the winterize button and it does nothing. It really seems like a software issue no error or other message is returned, the button does not change either to indicate that it has been pressed. I will review the throttle option.

On the graphic above I press engine 2 (which then activates/"lights up"), and then press the winterize button but it does nothing.

I have been asked to obtain the software version from your display.

 

Press the menu/setting button on the lower left. Touch the up-arrow in the bottom center of the screen. The software information will pop up.

If you can, just for grins and giggles, have both motors running and see if the #2 engine will then winterize. If so, then try winterizing the #1.

Re: Winterize twin engine etec g2

Let us know what version firmware is in your instrument.  I believe it is simply a matter of updating the same.
