  • Removing mounted remote from tohatsu 9.9hp

    I bought a new fuel injected 9.9 without the remote. I have to remove the old remote and control cabling. It is disconnected from cockpit and i opened the smaller panel exposing the control cable ends which are held in place with clips. To remove, would i feed the cable from the transom or disconnect clips from remote?

    1. Disconnect negative leads at the batteries. 2. Trace wires from remote to the batteries. 3.

      Assuming your new model is MFS9.9EEFL. The motor will have a battery cable. That will be used to start the motor, and for charging the battery.That is all. No extra hocus pocus.

          Paul! Thank you! Thanks for your patience through this process. Of course, you were right about the battery cable. Anticlimactic... So I completely disconnected the remote, shoved the cables and harnesses into the passthrough. I have to figure out how to disconnect the existing remote harness wiring and connect the simple TOHATSU battery cable to the vessel's power management system.

          I may have to remove the entire aft panel to see the big picture for wiring.

          thanks again

              Nope. Just the two cable ends. If the earlier motor had something else, the PO had it added. You COULD add a minn kota trolling motor disconnect, if desired.

                The 2nd post on this thread has a picture(s). This must be the quick connect for the battery? I could just cut the old connector off the old motor and use gel butt connectors?

                Thank You Paul

                        Paul, here are some images of the current setup. It is a Sierra plug that they stock at our west marine:
                        https://www.***************/buy/sierr...-12v--10528487
                        or AMAZON
                        https://www.amazon.com/Sierra-Intern.../dp/B073S73Q78

                        looks like we added this 6-8 guage Sierra plug to the battery cable using some kind of butt connector?

                        looks like a big difference in cables:

                        Any ideas in do this?

                          The Tohatsu cables are probably 6 ga. But the 9.9 only draws maybe 20 or 30 when cranking, so, if you want to pull the motor seasonally, that connector should be OK.

                            Our cruisers run year round... that connector has been on that cruiser for 16 years ... Paul thanks for helping me.

                              Nearly through with the project.

                              I think this is an 8ga cable onto a beefy butt connector.

                              My KLEIN lineman pliers just barely made a dent on the connector. Would I want to hit it with a hammer and punch?
