My 95 Bayliner Capri 2050 has a broken down Commander 3000 Throttle Shifter Controller. There are newer controllers without a trailer button sold by Mercury Marine (part # 883710a03). Would this be a suitable replacement?

You would need to change some things, doesn't appear to be direct swap

The Panel Mount control features a chrome handle and comes with a 4 ft. (1.22 m) trim and trailer switch harness with the 4 pin molex connector. All installations require a separate Ignition switch assembly and Throttle/Shift cables to complete the installation. The neutral safety switch leads are 6.5 ft. (1.98 m) and have a bullet connector on the ends. The lanyard switch leads also have bullet style connector ends.


Must use Gen II Throttle/Shift cables. Part number range 897978A__(choose your length)


The power trim extension harness also needs to be ordered separately:
84‑817659T01 & 84‑881125A1 = 4 pin Molex to traditional Mercury 3 blade P/T connector


84‑865772T01 & 84‑865772T02 = 4 pin Molex to the Packard 3 pin P/T connector.

Suggest contacting Merc Tech support and ask them for advise if another here doesn't know

Thank you alldodge. Are you saying I need an adapter harness for ignition or a whole new ignition assembly including keys?

Don't fully understand what the comments are saying. My take away is things have changed and instead of a 3 wire control there is a 4 wire connector. This is why I'm suggesting to contact Merc Tech to verify what you want and what to get
