I hooked up the batteries to the boat the other day. Needed charging so I hooked the jumper cables to the batteries to lower the motor down and up several times. Fine, motor turned over too, Honda 90. Everything in the system works. Radio, electronics, winch, 13.8 volts at the batteries after charging, nothing not working except the motor.
Motor has a little voltage to it now, enough to hear the hyd. pump. I have checked the fuses, wiring, battery connections, kill switch, in neutral before starting..... several times. But nothing will turn the motor over or power the hyd. pump. Can't even do it jumping it with the truck now either (dual battery, heavy duty charging system F-250).
For the life of me I can't figure it out. I have had the boat ten years and can't figure this one out.
