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.
