Hi again experts! I just installed my first Evinrude E-TEC 130 hp. Everything seems to be OK, but the instruments. I don't get any engine data to the ICON Pro instruments. When I start the engine, it shows 0.0 rpm, 0.0 volt, 0.0 water pressure etc. All the wiring seems to be correct, but maybe I have forgot something? I'm not sure the NMEA network is active. Can you exactly describe where in the engine the NMEA cable should be connected? I have connected this way: http://www.ladda-upp.se/bilder/zikjcwrmqfubph/ http://www.ladda-upp.se/bilder/htiuvyywauxxaq/ http://www.ladda-upp.se/bilder/xsryulqsmxkdj/ There is also at least two connections at the engine that is not in use. What are they for? Does the NMEA system or the ICON instruments need to be calibrated maybe? I'm looking forward to any advice. The engine itself is running just fine, without any faults according to the EvDiagnostics monitor.
Edit: It seems like I have solved the problem. It was a terminator missing at the NMEA T-connector. Battery voltage and oil level is now detected. I will start engine tomorrow. Hopefully the RPM will also work!
