2012 Mercury Not Starting

Recommended Posts

Ive got a 2012 60 Horse Mercury EFI. Went to fire it up Sunday and nothing. It doesnt even turn over. Put the battery on the charger and it went straight to a green light. I checked all the fuses and they are good. My bilge pump, livewell pump, horn, recirculating pump and lights work. My gauges, hydraulic tilt and motor do not work. I've run the boat 7 times already this year without an issue so im pretty confused. Im just looking for any thing to try or anything I missed before I drag it to a mechanic.

I don't want to be insulting, but I've done this.....you checked the kill switch/lanyard and popped it in and out of gear, right?

Yes, kill switch was set correctly and it was in neutral, Done that a few times myself.

I would say kill switch, do you get any power to trim?

I'd start at the battery. Remove and clean the connections, no matter if they look good or not. Then go to the battery connections at the motor, probably at the starter solenoid. Next there are fuses under the cowl of the motor. Another check would be the harness connection to the dash, under the motor cowl.
