Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old threads should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s thread (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old thread.

5. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • E-tec Emm No Oil Shut Down

    Morning, first off I live in the country of Panama. I have a 2007 115 E-Tec which went into No Oil Shut Down due to the Oil Line comming loose at the engine oil tank connector (The person who rigged the engine did not install a clamp!). I Do Not have the Dia Software and I am 26 miles via Open Water from the ONLY Evinrude Shop. Simple Question: Does anyone know if the No Oil Code can be Dumped from the EMM with out using the Dianostic Software. Note: The engine is out of Warranty. I realize there is some inherent risk using Non-Factory procedures...but there are some other really bigger issues using the local mech/shop - Trust me!

    Cheers,

    Catfish

    I don't know, but I am wondering if you can communicate directly with BRP, either by telephone or internet.

      The EMM won't prevent oiling, just provides the warning. You need to purge all air from the oiling system before running. Your dealer or BRP can provide guidance if you don't have a shop manual (which sounds like you really need, given your location).

        with oil line not hooked up to motor prime oil bulb till no air bubbles are seen.
        re-clamp line to motor.
        start motor and run on a set of muffs.
        now pinch of the oil return line with pliers.
        run motor for at least 5-8 min at idle [note] motor will smoke alot.
        let motor run 10-15 min more and watch the clear oil lines on the motor if no air bubbles are seen your good to go.[note]you will see very small air bubbles.this is ok.
        don't claim to know it all just hear to help.

          I just looked up the oil priming section for my E-Tec 175's ... "the primer bulb must continue to be squeezed until oil flows into the distribution hoses from the oil manifold and to the crankcase fitting. All air must be eliminated from the oil lines." The last step requires the use of the E-Tec diagnostic sw: "start the outboard and use the oil priming function in the software for a minimum of 90 seconds to make sure the system is completely primed. Observe oil flow through the oil distribution hoses. Make sure that oil flows though the rear oil distribution manifold to the cylinder block fittings. Small bubbles are acceptable. Large bubbles must be eliminated through a continued priming process. ... The oiling system can also be primed using the Self Winterizing feature if diagnostic sw is not available."

          The last sentence is the operative one for you.
          Jim

            Re: E-tec Emm No Oil Shut Down

            Wow guys thanks for the suggestions...What I am refering to is the SHUTDOWN MODE - Quote from the Service Manual " Conditions that initiate shutdown
            Code 29 Excessive EMM temp
            Code 31 Excessive engine temp
            Code 33 EXCESSIVE NO OIL condition
            Code 57 High RPM with low TPS

            Quotw from page 103 of the service manual "To recover from the Shutdown Mode, the EMM must not detect the related fault at startup. The outboard will not restart until the cause for the stored service code is resolved (Code 29 and 31) and the code is cleared using diagnostic software code 33 and 57, and the EMM is turned off and then on again. Important: Shutdown related to code 57 or 33 requires the removal of the stored service code. Use the Evinrude diagnostic software program to erase a code 57 or 33". I am Located in the Country of Panama, and I Have the Service Manual.
