Neutral Safety Switch — 1998 Four Winns Horizon

My husband asks: When starting the engine with the transmission in neutral, does the neutral safety switch remain open (disconnected) or closed to allow power to flow through it? I am receiving conflicting information via other sources. Basically, the boat won’t turn over. I just replaced the battery, cables, starter and cellenoid, and fuses circuit breakers have been checked. I’m thinking it’s got to be the neutral safety switch or the assist relay as these are the only remaining components.


[colour=Blue]Time to stop throwing parts at it till you find what the problem is. Here is a copy of a post I did about a year ago. Have no idea where it is now that this new software is up and running, and the search function doesn’t work yet.[/colour] So you hit the ignition switch so you can go home and either nothing happens, or you here a click from the engine, but the starter doesn’t crank. Now what. If you have a test light, you can find out in only a few minutes what the proble more

Wow! Well, now we see why you’re an Admiral! I just read this to my hubby. He was soooooo impressed. This is more than we’ve been able to get from even they guys wanting to impose labor charges for their time here in the Sacramento, CA area. We’ve printed your post and my husband just took it out to our 100-degree garage (well, OK, the garage is shaded so it may only be about 90 degrees in there). He’s been sweating it out (literally) all day so far and just got back from town where he picked up more

OK, Admiral Don. I’m back. Well, my husband just installed the new relay and went through each of your steps. he said that everything checked out as working properly. Guess what! The boat still won’t turn over. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Any suggestions now? I hate to bug you with this since it’s turning out to be a real pain but you’ve given us the most help so far. We sincerely appreciate it. I’ll await your reply. Thanks, again. Yagersmom more

Well, lets get down to some basics. What engine and drive combination and what year? Will the engine turn over by hand? Is the starter clicking or is there a hard clunk? more

Don! Hello! Good news! Looks like my husband just figured it out. Pardon my lack of knowledge of the proper terminology, but it looks like he had replaced the worng solenoid. Turns out the one he thought was not functioning properly was actually OK. The buzzing he heard had something to do with the oil pump? But the same part does a couple of different things? I don’t know. But he removed another of the solenoids and was able to try the new one in its place (I guess they’re basically the same bu more

So, he’s now on his way back to town to grad the right part. He has every confidence that once he puts it in, we’ll be good to go. Make sense? It doesn’t make any sense to me. Still don’t know what type engine you have, let alone what was buzzing, or why the start had anthing to do with what was buzzing. more

Buzzing sounds like the electric fuel pump maybe, Don. Hope your hubby had the engine connected to the muffs(water hose connector for the lower unit) when he started it? Or instantly shut off engine? But Congrats, wish all posts had this out come this fast. And yes Don S is a valuable person here as he is one of the more knowledgable gerus here, under paid, and over worked to help keep our boats going. more

[quote]Buzzing sounds like the electric fuel pump maybe, Don.[quote] Not necessarily. Depending on the make, you may not be able to hear the pump with just the key on. No info on make and model, no accurate answers. Some times you get lucky when throwing parts and money at things. But not always. more
