Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

The code that you are getting is for the Power 2 circuit.The books say that it could be either the paddle wheel shorted if installed or the smartcraft connector being corroded. Can you double check on these items and then get back to me?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No paddle wheel or smartcraft gauges on this boat.

Motor missed at 1/2 throttle or more. The computer showed the timing jumping from 29deg down to 7deg at full throttle.

Were you watching the temp of the motor as well when on the computer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it was not running hot. I can't recall the exact temp. If you can get with me tomorrow morning after 8 am I can have all the data.
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.

I am actually at work in a shop at that time. I am only on here after 6 PM CST weekdays and most of the day on the weekends.

The other thing that you would need to look at is the power 1 and 2 volts. Each should be 5V DC.

I would also need the serial number of the engine.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok, I will get those figures for you and the serial number for you. We can talk later tomorrow.

Sounds good. I am also sending you a phone offer if you want to get me directly on the phone with you.
