Just spent the last hour taking the control box apart. What a job that was - there's hundreds of wires and loads of greese. Anyway, all apearded to be well. Checked all the connections and they were sound.
I've decided to take it to a Mariner service place to get it checked over; it's been two weeks now and I still havn't fixed it!

Thanks all for the help!

Tim

When I was running low on oil I tilted my outboard so that I prop flipped to shore and the low oil buzzer sounded and the engine cut out. Mines not a Mariner but a Yam 80 but what I'm trying to say is that if you have a oil sender/control fault that the control thinks you out of oil then it stands to reson that the engine would cut out to protect it's self.

I guess the other fault was a dead battery with you trying to start you engine repeatedly.

Hope you solve your problems,

Andy

Just an update on my engine:

Took it to a Mariner service place. They have got it working again. The bloke told me that he spent five hours on it, and finally found the problem; a wire had become unplugged somewhere. He charged me 147 for the privalige, but to be fair, he did plug it in again for me!

Glad it's fixed but rather a lot of money for plugging in a wire! I hope he showed you which wire, in case it comes adrift again!!!
