Engine runs fine at 1/2-3/4 throttle. At full throttle within a minute a beeping begins and eventually cuts out. Will start after 15 minutes. 2015

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.

At full throttle cuts out within a minute along with a beeping sound. Starts again within 15 minutes. 2015 motor with less than 100 hrs.
