Hi, I am new to the forum and I come looking for helpful advice
We own a beneteau
Oceania 361 with a Volvo md2030 engine
. Currently if the engine
has been run for a few hours then stopped it will not restart.....this has lead to a couple of very hairy scary moments at sea. In order to fix the problem over the course of the season the following things have been done
Replaced...the panel switch the wire from panel to solenoid, the solenoid itself. The starter motor
has been removed checked and found to be ok. We have replaced the engine control box
and relays in it and we have renewed all the battery
Still after motoring for a couple of hours when it is stopped the engine wont restart.
We have fitted an emergency
button to allow us to bypass everything and effectively just connect battery
to starter motor
...this does allow engine to start even when hot.
Any ideas on what we may have missed?
This situation is starting to mean I am not living upto my name....which should really read...happy sailor!!!!
I hope I have posted this inn the correct place if not perhaps you could redirect me thanks
