Hi All. Normally I have questions about my Merc, but today I have issues with my Johnson (no jokes, please!) on my barge/pontoon.
I've been having troubles with poor idle (that will be brought up in my "Problem 2" post next. But, since I've had troubles with the idle, sometimes the engine dies when I come into dock. The last time I came in and the engine died, I forgot to turn the ignition off, It was left on all night. the next day I went to start it but there was nothing. Did not turn over and didn't even make a click. I changed the battery but still nothing. Any ideas?
Thanks JM. Yup, checked the fuse and it is ok.
I've heard story's about cars and that the ignition system gets screwed up if you leave the key in the "run" position with out the engine running. Wondering if that can be similar in outboards. Kind'a stuck now. The engine is in a remote place. By the time I get it out, to a shop and back again, the summer could be over almost tempted to buy a new (old) one to take in then sell when I bring the existing one back. Hmmmmm
