can you power up the coils manually the problem may be in the shifterMy electric shift stopped working & I have no idea where to start. I have a complete spare complete engine & lower unit that I know works. When I switched lower units, same thing. Any ideas? It's gotta be an electric problem!!! Mel
X2Make sure you have a good ground also, many people think you can just throw away the bonding cables on the hinge caps, they really need to be there.
Good luck...And it's not that shops hate OMC's, they just simply don't exist anymore and they are way more trouble than they are worth in many cases....
Used to get people come in that just bought an OMC powered boat on the cheap and thought they could get it working like a new one for a few hundred bucks.....Those are the people that soured shops willingness to work on them, well, that and the fact that finding parts for them is an art form.
