Having problems with my yamaha finding neutral. I will shift it into neutral, motor will be in neutral, but the motor will not start. turn the key and nothing. shift the shifter back and forth while turning the key and she turns right over. any ideas on what might be causing this? anyone have similiar problems? thanks for any insight, almost got stuck on the lake the other day

Open the hood, and look on the left or right hand side (think it's right) and look near the pan of the motor - you'll see two throttle cables with rod eyes on them... you're after the one that is NOT connected to the Carb... I believe the rod eye is oriented horizontal.

Look around that connection... there should be a neutral switch. You may need to adjust the position of that neutral switch so that when the gearcase is in neutral the neutral switch is working as intended.

I recently had the same problem with my 2003 F75. Eventually, shifting back and forth didn't work and I had to use the trolling motor to get home. It was the neutral safety switch that went bad. I don't know which model you have, but I had difficulty reaching the switch (buying a service manual this winter)and brought it to a marina. The labor was around $150. The part is $30.

Thanks for the help guys. It must be the neutral switch, I tried manually pushing it in (I heard wrapping the bar with aluminum helps depress the button) but that didn't work either. It looks like an easy fix, but my fat fingers can't get in there

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
