2002 Johnson 175 HP - No power and Stalling on restart
After re-starting on a warm start the motor would cut out after a minute or so. Tried re-starting it several times and it would start and then cut on once I try putting it in gear. After the third and fourth re-start the motor cut out and lost all power to the motor - trim was not working, ignition not working etc... Checked all fuses (OK) - all electronics and boat power were fine (they were all using the same battery as the motor) - checked main cut-off switch (OK) - turned the cut-off switch on and off, touched the trim on the motor and the power came back on the motor. Re-started the motor and allowed it to warm up longer and increased RPM's in neutral – this seemed to work. After, running full out and slowing down the engine chimes and warning lights (sound and lights you get once you turn on the motor) came on – However, no warning light stayed on.

What about the main 12v power cable to the engine, clean contacts?
Could be losing power, ignition switch might do the same thing too.
If you can get it to act up on a hose that would be a good time to go over things with a multimeter.
