boat wouldn't start on the second and nicest day of opener

3 posts in this topic

I think the problem started last night but don't really make sense to me. Last night the boat wanted to kill at idle but ran strong at full throttle. Got up this morning to head out for another round of fishing and it was like the batteries were dead, but they weren't. Turn the key and there wasn't even a click, nothing, but it was like it would cycle. Usually when the key is turned on it gives a beep, runs through the one-who-thinks-I-am-silly lights, then turn the key and it starts, now turn the key on and there is nothing but leave the key on and it beeps then quits, beeps then quits and if you hold the key for a while it will turn over for a couple seconds then goes dead again then keep holding the key and eventually it will turn over again then go dead and if it starts it kills right of way then it acts dead again.

bad key switch???? maybe a bad relay on the motor?? any help would be great

thanks in advance

Battery might be correct. I had a similar issue yesterday. I removed all wiring from the neg. side except battery and tilt with similatr results as you describe above. Then I also removed everything from my pos. side except the motor and tilt and she turned over great. Now I've got a short to find on my pos. side, or at least thats what I'm guessing it is. Also I am thinking of getting a second battery for my electronics just to be safe.

    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
