ok so we have a 2005 i believe Mobius LSV


I cannot even start to explain the amount of eletrical problems we have had with it

anyway just recently the boat has been dying when you put it into neutral. i made sure everything was tyte and shook some wire underneath the dash, took it out and it was fine but then the other day it happended again and still the same thing

only this time i couldnt fix it.

What could be the cause of this problem???????????! we have 2 brand new batteries, always run it on 1&2

i cant figure out what to do, another example of our electrical problems is that every time we go out on the boat the right fat sac fills up on its own and everytime we have to empty it. I finally just pulled the plug out of the back.


SO WHAT WOULD BE SOME THINGS TO CHECK???


Lastly transmission and V-drive fluid.

Do i just pour it into where the cap goes or what?

any help would be appreciated!!
thanks in advance

V-Drive Fluid - SAE30 - Just fill up where you measure the fluid.

Transmission - Dexron III ATF Fluid - Not sure where to fill it though (Haven't done this)

This happened to me on a previous boat that I had. There is a switch near the carb (I imagine there is one of these on FI boats too) that actually kills the engine for an instant allowing the boat to come out of gear. On my old boat, this switch would stick and the engine would die each time I put it in neutral. This was on a carbureted I/O so I am not sure it would apply to a V-drive.

On the tranny and V-drive, yes, use a funnel to pour oil into the same hole the dipstick came out of.

As far as the ballast bag filling by itself, there is a small lever on the solenoid valve that overrides the switch. If that lever is in the wrong position, the bag would fill everytime you are planing and any time you fill any of the other bags.

I/O's have the microswitch to momentarily kill the engine when shifting into neutral but the transmission type do not have those. There is some type of interlock to prevent starting in gear that may be misaligned and may be actuating. I'm not sure how that is done or where it is located.

Ughhh this is pissing me off, I just cleaned all the battery terminals and still I go turn it on and after it turns on it kinda like stutters when I put it into neutral.

It like revs up then revs down then up and down and up and down.

Its like its losing power for a second then gets it back then loses it.

Carb or EFI?

I was just wondering if you had a carburetor or Fuel Injected engine..

im almost positive its fuel injected but i could be wrong. this is really the first time ive worked on boats, im pretty good with cars

maybe someone else might chime in?

Should I get SAE30 heavy duty for the v-drive or just regular?

I just put HD in mine as it's all I could find...

Dealer said to me, as the v-drive doesn't have ignition no build up should happen so a detergent isn't really necessary.. but the HD won't harm it either way...
