Red: +12V contantly on (even with key off).

Hope that helps.
Prob not-it's an Evinrude

It's probably running the main charging circuit directly to the battery via the starter solenoid power 'in' if no-one's messed with it.
You need to fire the engine up on muffs with a voltmeter across the battery to check if it's charging.The voltage across the battery will rise after if's started if it's charging.
If the voltage across the battery goes above about 14.4v when you blip it then there's no regulator in the circuit.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
