If you put a new battery in the boat then look around the battery and make 100% sure that you hooked up ALL of the accessory wires to both NEG and POS posts. Sounds dumb but I have come accross it multiple times. As for the engine, if it turns over but will not start then I am about 80% sure that you need to have your carbs cleaned. Fuel sits in the bowl of the carb, then after about 30 days starts to varnish, after varnish it starts to look like mollasses. Then spring comes around and you squeeze the fuel bulb and crank it over forcing that old **** into your idle jets. That is why it is really a good idea to have your carbs fogged before you store your boat for the winter.

I brought a Motorola VHF HT1250 radio off of eBay & I programmed it & tested it out & everything worked great for a few hours & then it beeped once & shut off & now will not come back on.


Returning the radio would be your best option. There are many factors which can cause a radio to go dead. Assuming you have checked your battery and battery contacts, and tried a known good battery, if your radio will not power up, there isn't much which can be done.

Best regards.

My 1997 cameo wont start and the radio dont turn on but the lights work and the horn works i bought a new battie but it wont start


There must be enough juice in the new battery to run the lights and horn. Check the starter. It should at least turn over trying to start on a new battery.

Depth sounder


the transducer has to be in the water or attached to the inside of the hull if fiberglass with no air between the hull and the transducer. It doesn't transmit thru air.

Depth Sounder does not display depth


I will see if I can get mine off the hull for testing. Still have found no procedure. Thinking about just replacing the sounder with another unit.
