I have a 1997 Four Winns 220 with a 5.7 Volvo penta engine.

Customer Question

Hi, I have a 1997 Four Winns 220 with a 5.7 Volvo penta engine. The battery cables were accidentally crossed before starting recently and as a result the boat will not start now. All of the other electrical components are working fine. The engine is turning over but will not start. The local marina that has looked at it thinks its not getting fuel sent and its a bad computer. But, they are not 100% sure
Please help
