Re: [Amel] Yanmar ground solenoid

Dear Giovanni,
We had similar situations with solenoid.  Our cure is to regularly exercise the solenoid by depressing the 'black rubber' seal.
Kind regards

Subject: [Amel] Yanmar ground solenoid


Hi to all,
at sunset , sailing Water Bligh, Fiji, I had to start my Yanmar to go to anchorage. Nothing…no engine. At the moment I remembered a similar situation when we were sailing Eolie, Italy. It was the ground solenoid fault. A W40 spray under the black rubber cover button solved the problem. And it was also in this very adrenalitic situation.
Now for me it is enough ! I want to eliminate/ bypass the ground solenoid.
Any suggestions ?
If I directly connect the 2 black cables, what about the others little cables arriving to solenoid ?
May I have problem to switch off the engine ?
Thanks so much in advance
