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.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
