Good day everyone,
I have got a question concerning the power pack ground (single Black wire with yellow stripe) my Evinrude 88 horsepower SPL V-4 model# E88MSLCER. Where the single black/yellow stripe wire connects at the power pack at the engine there is a break inside the boot. What I mean is when I go to that black/yellow stripe wire that goes into a boot connector that connects to the boot connector going to the power pack to me it looks like there is a pin that goes inside another pin and when I go to turn the ignition key off up front at the remote control the engine will not shut off it still satys running until I go back to the engine at the connection and push the wire back towards the boot then the engine will shutt off. The problem I am having is figuring out how I am going to fix it replace it. Is that black/yellow stripe wire suppose to pull out from inside the boot and that end that disconnects suppose to have like a pin looking end? Because when I separate the boot from the wire there is a pin on the wire but there is also a pin inside that boot. What do you guys think I should do to fix it ? I don't want to take it to the marine dealer and I don't want to put any different type of electrical end on it because if I have to replace the power pack in the future I will have to cut the boot end off of it and put on a different connector. I am confident that is what the problem is from keeping the engine from shutting off when the key is put in the off position.
