Problem with a 3 yr old Mercury 25hp EFI 4 Stroke
Has anyone ever had this problem?
I've got a 3 yr old Mercury 25hp EFI 4-Stroke. Every time I take it out since last fall it does the same thing. When I get under way at full throttle, within almost exactly one minute the motor's warning light/alarm (solid tone) comes on and the motor goes into an idle mode. Ok, first thought is that it's over-heating, or it's not warmed up. It's not. Peeing fine, read on...
I shut down the motor, wait a few minutes (was only a few seconds during cold duck hunting season, longer as it is getting warmer now). Then, I start it back up, and have no further problems. It runs perfectly the rest of the day.
At first it was just an annoyance. Now, since the warranty period is about to expire, I want it fixed. Last thing I want is to have it go into idle mode with a barge coming at me!
If anyone knows what could be the cause, and a fix, please let me know. So far the shop has no clue. Thanks!
