Might have better luck over on the Etec Owners Group forum. A number of us ribnetters with etecs are also members over there.

Hi
Did you have the throttle wide open, you need this so as to not restrict the amount of air flowing into the engine while doing the compression test, make sure that the kill cord has been removed. 1) so you don't electrocute yourself and 2) you don't damage the coils or the ECU.
Hope this helps
Ian

I would point out that certainly ours and I think all etecs still fire with no kill cord.

what is the point of the kill cord then, or is it one of them that will run while the key is held in the start position and stops when you let the key go.

It's a saftey feature that allows a crew member to restart the outboard should the helmsperson gets a dunking with the kill cord still attached to the leg.

etec compression

thanks guys but no direct answers, throttle fully open , you cant kill cord an etec, weird buts thats the way they have them, i ju st removed t plug leads , have been on t etec owners group looking but again no direct discussion on t compression figures its as if its a big secret one guy mentions 127 psi and the moderator s answer is quote no direct figures yet, had it plugged in last wk and guess what a perfect bill of health after a 150 mile drive no codes emm updated brilliant , this wk injector gone down and compression seems low, its a joke this thing is just like t rudes of old when they go they go and then they stop and its all over until they decide they want too start again, when its running the owner wont turn it off at sea incase it wont start again and seemingly it a common prob according to the etec owners site, i d love too know t answer on the comp figures though.

So was mine with my old Yamaha. A mercury I had, had a toggle switch and the cord went over the top, it pulled the switch to off when pulled, but switch could be flicked back to on without the kill cord. With the Evinrudes you just knock the control level back in to neutral and turn the ignition off, then restart the engine like normal.
