I got the most awkward call at 4:00 am telling me my engine
started itself and ran for ~45'.
I had the boat hauled out and, since the solar
controller isn't working, she was plugged in to charge the batteries.
Maybe the panel switch got shorted due some severe corrosion
, maybe it's the starter relay that it's corroded/shorted.
Don't know much about engines or electrical
systems and my english
isn't good enough to express myself on such confusing subject.
Anyway, any help to decipher this mystery is more than welcome.
I'm afraid that after facing (optimistic mode on) a burned out starter, exhaust
, raw water
rotor, etc. and the bovine look on the marina's people I won't have the necessary serenity to think clearly.
PS: I won't be offended in any way by any kind of remarks. I recognize my ignorance and try to learn from any opportunity and mistake.
Just shoot! :-)
PS2: It's a Volvo
MD2020 in very good condition (I assume).
