Customer Question
Hi, I have bought...

Hi, I have bought a ne CDi for my 75 hp Yamaha (75AET), but there is no place for the pink wire in the new CDI.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

I believe my CDI as broken down on my Yamaha 75 hp so I looked in the Technical drawing and got the partsnumber for the CDI. Tha partsnumber are 688-85540-11, but here is where it starts to be difficult. The old CDI has TIA 03-10 written on the backside of the case and the new one has TIA 03-01 written on the backside.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

And in the new one, the pink connector is missing.

Serial number for the motor: Yamaha 75AET###-##-####
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
To sum things up, the new CDI (TIA 03-01) correspond with the technical drawing. The old CDI (TIA 03-10) does not, so I suspect that the previous owner has installed a faulty CDI.

Hi, my name is***** and it was I who looked up the part number for the CDI. I attached the technical drawing from where I got the part number.
Accordning to the motor tag, the engine should be a 1979 or newer.BR

I didn't realize how old this engine was. I don't have any information for it because of it's age. I will opt out and leave your question open to the community.
