The boat is a Prosports ProKat 2860 Tournament Ed at 2 x 225 hp

Have tried using other engine switch and still spins starter but no fire. Checked all fuses and big acg bar--all good.

I was going to try and isolate the engine from the rest of the wiring somehow? Any ideas? Would help determine if a boat wiring problem or something with the engine.

Maybe the main relay?

Thanks,

Hi, I answered this on your other question. If you like we can go back to that or carry on here. The main relay is in the front of the engine and is a solid potted relay. You will need an ohm meter to troubleshoot it and some jumper wires. Let me know if you have these and I can walk you through the procedure. For continuity it is better to continue on the other thread. You don't need to open another question to continue.
