Thread: ar230 ho ecu

  1. #1

    ar230 ho ecu

    anyone know if the ar ho series jet boats have the remote transponder module, steering sensor, or any of the other un necessary features the fx ho ski's have.

    I am asking because i am doing a mr-1 ho swap into my 1200xlt hull. I have the conversion done just looking for an ecu. And id like to not have to run the remote transponder unit that the fx ho ski's run. same as the steering sensor. ive checked online and they do have different part numbers and in the online microfiche it doesn't show much. did notice though when working on an ar230 ho at work that there is the absence of a tip over switch in the jetboat electrical box. and it seems the rear hatch switches are just wired in like the lanyard on a jet ski.

    im also wondering if the ecu will communicate with the jet ski guages. i don't have one at the shop right now or id just plug it in and try. hoping someone has some knowledge.

    if it will work which i don't see it being a problem im looking for a high output ecu from a jetboat.

    figured out how to remove the transponder module for the remote security system. now.... seems all the fx and fx ho motors after 03 have the idle bypass solenoid. will these engines run without it? seems yamaha added it when they added the off throttle steering system.

    either way im looking for a 04 fx ho ecu or a ar230 ho ecu. anyone?

    ECU Swap

    Did you manage to sort out your ECU issues? I'm having somewhat of a similar problem with the differences between AR and FX ECUs. I've just got a call from my boat shop saying my one AR non-HO ECU is damaged and I assume unsalvageable. So far the only reasonable replacement I've been able to source is from a FX140. Part numbers are different to the AR ECU but with your experience, what would you say the chances are of getting the motor going on a FX ECU? I see your other post going along similar lines, I would also need the FX ECU running without all the FX paraphernalia. Oh, the ECU I've found is an old 2003 unit so may have been from before all the steering sensor and the like times.

    Thanks,
    Justin

    Thanks for the response, turns out the shop got it wrong and it was in fact a failed ignition coil. Managed to find a replacement and I have both motors running, should get out this weekend for a test, see how she goes. I think the shop suspected the ECU because of some corrosion around the box but it seems to be working out ok so far.

    I put an 08 fx cruiser ecu in my 05 ar230 boat
    works great, except i always get a tip sensor flash on gauge
    cause boats don't have that installed
    everything works perfect, used for two seasons now

    Sorry they are both sold.

    I do have some FX ski ECUs available. What year & model boat do you need a ECU for?

    Thanks
