Hi all you Evinrude experts... I have a customer with a 2001 FICHT 135 V6 outboard with 550 hours on the unit. The engine has been maintained by us here in Devon England - www.explorermarine.co.uk
- since new and the reliability has been fantastic.
Recently the Engine Management Module EMM software has been indicating that the alternator is overcharging, and hence it puts the warning lights and buzzers on the dashboard.
The service manual gives some tests, and we have seen that the regulator is attempting to charge at up to 16.8 volts - which is not good for the battery!
Since the voltage regulator is within the EMM - which costs £1000 / $2000 in the UK, we are looking for a cheaper solution to solve this customers problems...
Any ideas out there?
