7 posts in this topic

Im in the middle of trying to winterize my boat and i cant get my motor to turn over. All i can get is a loud click everytime i turn the key. Everything is hooked up and the battery is charged. I cant figure out whats wrong! Can anyone help?

Motor in gear just a little bit?

I will say when my stater went thats what my motor sounded like. Just a click when I turned the key. That would be very odd for it to happen now though.

Im going with throttle lever not locked in neutral totally. Hopefully its that simple.

Not in neutral all the way is my guess too. It happens to me occasionally.

I don't think you'd be hearing a loud click if it was in gear.

I'd first look to see if your bendix is jamming on the flywheel.

Next step is clean the connections at the battery. If that doesn't work I'd check the ground connection on the engine and + connection on the solenoid then the + on the starter.

Frank is right, if you hear a click it's not the neutral safety switch. Check the connections as suggested and use a 12v test light to check voltage going to and leaving the solenoid.

I'm guessing bad connection to the battery and not enough power to turn it over...

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
