Need Help 1988 Merc Xr2 On 1988 Ebtide

Recommended Posts

Hi i recentley bought a 88 ebtide with a 88 merc xr2. I know the boat runs i was in it last year and can get it to turn over using jumper cables and a battery. when i run the volt meter i have power at the starter solenoid so conection from battery to motor are good. on the other hand when i turn key i get absolutely nothing. i replaced the ignition switch today and still nothing if anyone can give me any helpful advice i would appreciate it thanks.

yes i replaced the starter solenoid as well you can turn the motor over by jumping it from the battery and cables to terminals. idk what the deal is.

there is a inline fuse on that motor some place I think its on the starboard side i know if it blows the starter wont engage

Check the wires leading to the solenoid for rot. Also verify that the wires are hooked up properly.
