Secureness of SCOM Pin to ECU Connector
Took my ski out earlier today, and saw 8,000 RPM for the first time - as water temperature was a bit cooler.
Ski was running great, hitting some "rollers" pretty hard - and heard the "Buzzer" go off. Checked and I see F1 Warning Code and read SPSE.
Thinking the SCOM Module pin again?
It has happened before - Reference:
So I head to shore and all kinds of rollers are breaking and my shit's getting tossed all over the place. Determine I can't play with it there - so back inside to the Intracoastal Waterway - and I disconnect the battery and go after the ECU Connector. Remove the Blue SCOM wire and place the stock Brown/White stripe wire back in place button everything up - disconnect SCOM from diagnostic plug, connect battery - and head out for a ride - where the code clears after ~ 1 minute.
Rode for the remainder of the day w/o SCOM and had great fun !!!
What is with the pin on the R&D SCOM? Sometimes it's "happy" and sometimes it does this?
Anyone have a solution - I think I remember Mark used epoxy on his?
All I kept thinking on the way back to get out of the Gulf of Mexico - to a calmer area - before I silenced the audible alarm - was "Buzzer Boy" (Mal's nick name for Corey's unfortunate oil temperature induced event)

Ed I run a small dab of silicone on that blue wire and hold it to the connector..this way it doesn't move stays stable and won't back out...the stock brown/white wrap with electric tape..67 hrs no problems..

I never had one issue with mine issues normally come from it not being fully seated in the first place.

increase the pin tension

the silicone not touching anything metallic..the blue wire to outside black connector
Maybe should have explained better...

Ed - I had it come loose a couple times in chop, got tired of messing with it and used a dab of silver epoxy - never had an issue since. Great day for a ride, I got out there myself and agree the cooler temps make a big difference in how the ski runs

Since this has happened before - I made 100% certain the pin was "seated" correctly when I got my stuff back on dry land - namely in my garage - where I could assess the issue, and it's been fine for almost 1 entire year.
Yes - I was confident the pin was seated 100% or else the locking tabs would never have "locked".
I made certain there was tension on the pin, and even tye wrapped the stuff real nicely - trying to maintain tension on the pin where it seats in the connector, all with the hopes that this would not happen.
I am thinking the pin on the SCOM is not a true replica of the OEM connector pin - and that the best way to do this would be to either get another OEM pin or cut the brown/white wire and solder in the SCOM wire using the OEM pin... I'll certainly sleep on that one before I get the soldering iron out.

I always cut it on every ski I have fitted SCOMs to, just ensure you use marine grade heat shrink over it, not the normal crap 99% of reseller offer u.
