Mercury Warranty

6 posts in this topic

Did Merc only recently change the warranty to 5 years vs. 3 years? I had an electrical part/harness(that I don't know what it is) completely fry/corrode/burn. I don't even think electrical is usually covered under warranty.

Oh and if anybody would have a guess at the harness/wires that fried....it is the harness located directly above the oil/dipstick, it is a Mercury 60hp, Big Foot EFI, 4 stroke. A lot of black Stuff around the area.

Yes, the recently increased their warranty coverage period as a purchase incentive, the base rate is still 3 years.

I believe electrical is covered under warranty - I don't know why it wouldn't. I didn't see electrical specifically mentioned in the exclusions, so you should be ok. If in doubt, call the dealer before bringing it in.

Yes... electrical is covered under the Mercury warranty. I had a short on some solenoid on my brand new Merc 40HP earlier this year that fried the harness. It was fixed with the warranty claim at no change to me...

Only problem is I was asking this question from the other side of the fence>>>> My motor is a 2004, warranty out last Sept. Terrible!

I see...

You could talk to a dealer, and if it's something that happened on it's own you may get some "policy" money from mercury if they can determine that it's a manufacturing / design flaw.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
