Boat wouldn't start!
Had my 08' 215hp out yesterday. Ran great for a good solid hour. After letting it sit for about two hours it wouldn't start. Cranked over fine but sounded as if it was getting no spark. After bringing it home and hooking it up to the CanDoo pro the following codes appear.
ignition coil #2 open circuit or shorted to ground or to 12v
ignition coil #1 open circuit or shorted to ground or to 12v
ignition coil #3 open circuit or shorted to ground or to 12v
So I put new plugs in the boat runs great. I decided to not leave well enough alone so I swapped out the new plugs and put the old ones back in, RUNS GREAT.
Anyone have an idea what's going on?

I kinda thought that at first too but the motor was turning over fine. If it was a bad ground wouldn't the starter have trouble also?

My RXP is hard to start at times but mine goes like this hit the start and it shows 350 rpm then stops cranking. Hit it again does the same over and over. If you hot it WOT it will crank non stop. I find I have to do this at least once a weekend. After a few tries holding it WOT it will start on its own with the throttle at rest. I think it floods myself but not sure.
