<p>hello. yellow wires go to stator under flywheel. this is where your charging power is generated. thet then go to your regulator. the red wires are battery power and the gray goes to your rev counter</p>
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Would the 2 yellow wires being found burnt together cause the regulator to burn out?

I think it is a orignal regulator cause it is clear being able to see the board melted , I was told by boat dealer the newer regulators are dark and unseen through. I quess the question is what do you think happened first? Would a regulator going bad cause these two wires to melt together? After all repairs were made to the wires correctly should I

replace with new regulator with out fear of burning it up. If so will it stop warning beeper.

Thank-You

<p>the two wires shorting together should not cause the reg damage. those regs did give a bit og a problem. test the two yellow wires with ohm meter. they should have no circuit to earth. you should also have a low ohm reading between the two yellow wires.</p><p>the beeping is a separate problem.</p>

Expert:  johanes jake replied 4 years ago.
