    Re: System check, regulator or trim sense problem (johnson 130hp 2000) ?

    Thanks for the reply. So I have the official service manual, but some of the instructions are not 100% clear, but I am reasonably certain that the rectifier/regulator block is bad - several different tests that I am reasonably sure I followed correctly indicate this is bad! Guessing the bad trim gauge is a separate issue as it doesn't feed through the regulator! Any suggestions on testing this?

    Re: System check, regulator or trim sense problem (johnson 130hp 2000) ?

        Do you have an original factory service manual or one of the abbreviated aftermarket publications such as a Seloc, Clymer, or another brand?   The tachometer gets its signal from the charging system regulator. If your battery is not being recharged, concentrate your efforts on the electrical system.     To test the tachometer output:   

    Connect the red meter lead to the tachometer purple  

    wire and the black meter lead to the tachometer  

    black wire (key ON, outboard NOT running).  

    If meter shows battery voltage, go to next step.

    If meter shows less than battery voltage, check

    the purple, red/purple, and black wiring circuits;

    fuse, key switch, and battery connections.

     

    Disconnect gray and black wires at tachometer.

    Set Fluke 29 Series II meter, or equivalent, to Hz

    scale. Connect meter between gray wire and

    black wire. With outboard running at 1000 RPM,

    meter should indicate 90 to 105 Hz.

    If meter reads 90 to 105 Hz, replace tachometer.

    If meter reads low or no signal, confirm output on gray wire at the regulator/rectifier.
