Customer Question

I have a Raymarine Dragonfly 5 and its about a year old. It has worked great I have it on a separate switch with a fuse and tied into a Buss board. As I said it has worked great never any issues. I put a new Controller Arm on last week and now when I shift the arm to put it into gear (forward) and get a little speed going it shuts off. The motor is a 1981 Mercury 500 (50hp) Thunderbolt Ignition.
My buss boards are 4 post and have at least 2 connections on each post....lights radio ect. But it has never been an issue until I put the new Mercruiser controller on.
