Starting problems


Recommended Posts

1997 Response, 350 Merc

replaced ign switch on Sat, my buddy took it out yesterday and said something on the back of the engine would click 15-20 times before it would crank over. He said its not the starter solenoid making noise. And since ive been on the boat this year we never experienced this problem. I am going over there after work to personally diag it, just looking for some areas to test/look.

Is there an ignition relay on the back of the engine?

Anyone every experience this before?

Im thinking its something related with the new ign swtich.

there is a starter relay as well as an ignition relay and a fuel pump relay mounted high on the rear of the engine.

i had ignition relay problems and 'musical relays' was suggested.
