Winterizing 2006 e-Tec 40hp

[ Edited ]

2006 Evinrude E-Tec
Model#E40DPLSDA
Serial#05126081

I feel a little silly asking about this as I own a 115hp e-tec and have never had an issue with winterizing. Well I just purchased an older pontoon as a work boat and was going through the winterizing process. The boat is out of the water and it was running it with muffs. I taped off the bleeder holes and the water was coming out the exit port when it was idling. Then I turn off the motor and start the process. I get to the last step and the motor will not shut off. It’s possible the first time it happened that the throttle lever was not advanced far enough the first time, but the second time I moved it all the way forward. The lights on the display are flashing like they should, I could smell/see oil in the exhaust but no shut off. Felt like it was running for 2min or more before I aborted. My 115 runs for like 45 seconds and it’s done.
Before I took delivery the dealer they hooked it up the the computer and there were no faults. The motor only has 96 hours on it too, not bad for a 2006.

Any insight would be much appreciated.

A quick way of knowing if the unit is in winterization mode is to watch the indicator lights on the EMM. If you followed the process correctly, all of the indicators will flash rapidly.
