suzuki 140hp cut out.....

hello, just returned from a trip to scotland, which at the end, after a long trip to cape wrath, and a few fishing stops along the way, we had just turned the engine on to make the final step of the return journey back to the slip, the engine started, started to accellerate.....then it cuts out......the controls noo longer seem to work, kill cord is still in, but trim n tilt on controls ont work, no beep when you turn the key, and the engine wont start......what has gone wrong???

there was still electrics going throughout the boat, eg, gps, fishfinder, even the trim and tilt button on the actual engine works.....but for some reason the engine doesnt work, and as is the controls are dead, no beep when you turn the key, no strating up, nothing, also had plenty of fuel.....any ideas?

Sounds like bad battery or corroded terminals. That is where I would start anyway.

Does the solenoid on the starter click when you try to start?
The suzi I have on a speedbaot would not start yesterday, even tho plenty of power in battery etc. Solenoid clicking in fine, but starter did not click.
Turns out the starter had seized (not been run for a while). Probably not the case with yours, but a couple of taps on top of the starter shaft might help free it if it's stuck.

Might just be connections though, as the above does not sem likely given you were out on the water.

I'd check the cables between the engine and the control box. It sounds like there's no power getting to the control box..... You could also find that if it's not that, maybe a fuse has blown somewhere - if this is the case, it may be worth getting a suzuki engineer to take a peek.

its not that old an engine and boat, bought last summer, so its unexpected to have any problems, the battery is fine, has plenty of charge, and terminals look as they have always done, everything runs of same battery, and works, such as fishfinder and gps, and i presume electricity is getting to the engine unit as the trim tilt button on the actual engine works, but just nothing on the controls, and as you turn the key the first click it should sound a beep, but doesnt now since it conked out, then you turn it the extra turn to start the engine, but nothing happens, so its looking increasingly like a suzuki engineer will hav to deal with it......should i contact humber who supplied the package or direct to suzuki??? many thanks

no power

if its similar to a Mariner,(i might be talking utter b_____cks, but im sure there is a multi pin round connector that is under the engine cowling,sounds like it has been pulled apart, the power trim button on the engine outer casing has 2 seperate wires which connect to the engine loom,so that is still connected,which giver you power to the pt&t have a look,,

Definitely sounds like a problem with the wiring loom which runs from the engine up to the control box. Check that none of the multi-pin connectors have come adrift behind the control box and at the other end in the engine. Could be something as simple as one of the 12v feed wires has come off under the console. Normally stripey green/red on a suzzy

There should be a permanent 12v lead direct from the + terminal of the battery. It's a white lead with a blade fuse near to the battery. Check the fuse. If this is OK, you'll find a spare white lead in a clear plastic bag on the main loom plug on the engine block. Energise this with 12volts taken straight from the battery. If this cures the problem, the fault is in that permanent 12v supply line so you'll need to replace it.

This is a common fault on Suzuki DFs so it's worth running a 12v + to your engine as a spare.
