voltage output from Johnson motor?

7 posts in this topic

I own a 97 115 Johnson outboard on a fishhawk Crestliner. My voltage meter constantly says the motor is putting out 16 plus volts while running at high rpm's and also sometimes while idling. I know the guage is correct because it shuts off my locator when there are 16 vt. or more. Is this normal? if not any ideas?

Have you tried to swap out the battery??
I once had a bad battery do the same thing on my 90 Mercury.It did the same thing as yours,
always in the red(over-charging).

Not sure what was wrong with that battery,as it also took a charge and stuff.I brought it in to Batteries Plus where they tested it on their machine and said it was bad.Haven't had any problems since I replaced it???

GConda, Glad it was just yer battery.I had another glitch one time,where the voltage on my locator/and dash-gauge were indicating under-charging.After some worring about the charging system AGAIN.
I found one end of my fuse in the fuseholder
was all green and funky!A little scrubbing away of the problem corrosion,and things were
just fine.Sometimes, its the simple things that turn out to bite us!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
    • Wonder if it is on Netflix?   Looks like there is actually a good reason to build the wall.....it could help keep the Mexicans out of harms way from drunken South Texas hunters. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/19/hunters-charged-in-texas-shooting-had-blamed-immigrants.html
