Customer Question

Tohatsu/Nissan nsd50a 2001 50 hp outboard. Motor runs great. Then upon acceleration above 3200 RPM the ECU fuse blows. Changed the rectifier. Same problem. What could be causing this?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. When this happens normally the problem is the alternator coils under the flywheel. You would need to replace these as most probably it is shorted.

IF you require further assistance let me know.

Brand new alternator

So the alternator and rectifier are brand new? Then check the battery cables as they may be shorted somewhere across the line.
