2000 Johnson 70hp Model J70PLSSD- Wont Start


Recommended Posts

I just got a 2000 Johnson 70hp Model J70PLSSD that's on a 17' Logic cc from an uncle who passed away. It ran great when I got it home a week ago. Went to start it up the other day when I turned the key I got the initial beep, when I turned the key further to the right there was nothing except an audible click in the trim relays. Trim wouldn't go up or down and starter wouldn't even turn.

Just prior to this start attempt I took the wires off both batteries. Its an inline 24 volt system with a perko battery switch. I cleaned up the terminals and changed any corroded ones. I took pictures before I unhooked them to make sure I put them back on the right terminal.

Could I have fried something?

I ordered new trim relays and a solenoid. What else could be the issue here?

Double check all battery terminals.When you turn the key to the first position you are drawing no amps but when turned to start you will somtimes make a bad connection relivant.Has to be a wiring or bad connection as it started before.

Hunting and fishing is not a sport to me its a way of life:rock:

It could just be a case of bad batteries that are now hooked up and draining quick.

Clean the battery terminals and then tighten them with a pair of pliers. That should fix the issue.

 

I cleaned the terminals with a small Dremmel with a wire wheel. There shinning and tightened down


is it plugged in>?

 

Plugged in how?

Test the voltage at the battery while you are turning the key. The voltage drop will tell you if your batteries are good or not. 12.7 means nothing unless you test it under a load. I know it sounds primitive but tap the starter and solenoid with a wrench while someone has the key turned, when starters sit for a period of time corrosion sets up between the starter motor brushes and the armature creating a "dead spot". Also are you in neutral?

Hook your meter to the 2 small posts on your start solenoid and turn the key.if you have voltage with the key turned to the start position then the problem is the solenoid or starter. If there.is no voltage then the neutral safety switch is a likely culprit

Got it working!!! Something so stupid... I took all the cables off and cleaned them. While putting them back on the batteries the main black cable slid under the 2nd battery and I didn't see it the other day. Today I pulled the battery back out and started retracing and found the black under the battery unhooked. I hooked them back up and presto!!! The engine fired right up as well as the electronics. I was seriously pulling my hair out trying to figure out what the heck happened. Lesson Learned, check for ALL WIRING back to the batteries!!!

 

Thanks Guys for all the help...
