    Re: First Etec - First disappointment - Costs a lot of $$

    Yes I can understand where you are coming from I should have used the term malfunctioning! No hard feelings. There were 3 trips back to the dealer over the overheating. The alarms would go off as soon as the key was turned on even though the motor had not been run. The motor was bought new and installed by the dealer at the same time I had a new transom installed and a total refurbishment including rewired seat pods and live tank.
    The first time there was a defective temp sender,errors cleared ran on muffs fine which the dealer did in front of me. Towed home on trailer and when got home turned key on temp said 301'F alarms going off so Took it back, temp senders fine updated software and errors disappeared ran on muffs no problems he also had diconnected ignition and guages an pluged a key in to bypass all stuff mounted in boat,as dealer did while I was there again all good towed home again. Got home turned ignition on alarms going off straight to 301'F again. Rang up the etec dealer and he came and picked it up. I said would it have a Broken wire? He said that he would check that and all the connections. All was fine and then spoke with the technitions from Evinrude who told him it would be EMM. The EMM has been sent out and replaced test ran and delivered back to me, was all done under warranty. I have no complaints about the way the dealer has looked after me. BRB have honored their end of the warranty and are happy with them as well. I bought Etec as other 2 strokes don't even compare, and I choose the etec dealer as he is the best marine mechanic in the area.
    Will be taking it out in 2 days so should be all good again and can worry about catching a Snappa or a shark or two. Cheer's

    Re: First Etec - First disappointment - Costs a lot of $$

    You were the one who used the term "blew up" so since I have never seen one blow up I was interested in seeing what that meant. I have seen a handful malfunction but most of the time it is due to how the NMEA2000 network is wired so that is why I said make sure it is correct with terminators at either end and the engine seen as a device. Do you have wing nuts on the battery. On the temp thing, the "EMM tells the motor nothing, the engine has two temp senders on the cylinder heads that sends information to the EMM about the engine temp and then the hottest one gets sent to the NMEA2000 network. If the engine is not actualy overheating I hope they check the temp senders and I wonder if they did an EMM recovery and check the revision number before just replacing the EMM and then I hope it was done right-ask if they did the timing and looked at the battery set-up as above. On the comment about 283 maintainence free, the serivce intervals is 3 years or 300 hours and every single outboard needs home care so I sure hope the person who rigged this engine told you all that you should do at home, no matter what engine your boat has.
