There are some boat Salvage yards which carry used parts. Some of them will ship the parts. You can do an internet search on the Browser and find both new aftermarket parts and more used parts.

You need to give the make of the outdrive and year model for what you have. You also need to indicate if you are talking a motor module or a shift module. Some computers are universal and others are specific to your information.

Most of the time the engine module is bo;lted on the motor close to the coil paks. The shift modules are bolted to the manifolds with wires going to the micro switches.

Where are the engine codes located on a 1970 Pacemaker 45' boat. Where are Boat Identification codes located on pre 1972 boats? Specifically this Pacemaker?

With a boat 44 years old, your boat engines may have been replaced or at minimum, overhauled. You might resubmit your question with some easy information you can add:

Gasoline or diesel engines?
Many were Crusader engines & you can usually see the name like this on the top portion of your engines.
You can see what color the valve covers are (blue, black, etc.).
You can see if they are V-8 engines if they have two long valve covers on top.
Most engines have a name plate on them (yours may be gone if original engines). Any mechanic you run into might find it quickly or recognize the engines.

Enjoy your boating. Pete

When I plug in my flash drive, my computer won't read it. The light on the flash drive does not light up. Is there any way I can fix this?

Try it on another computer. If it works, then your computer's USB port has problem. Check the ports and make sure they are properly connected and are cleaned. Also make sure the USB driver is updated/installed. You can also try it on another USB Port of your computer. If it doesn't work on another computer, then I would say your Flashdrive is bad or gone.

Let me know if you need further help.

Starter out in my 2002 dodge stratus where is it locat

If its a 4 cyl, its right below the computer on the driver side when you open the hood. Just behind the radiator. It attaches to the transmission bellhousing. On a V6, not sure but probably close to 4 cyl location. Not too bad to replace on a 4.

Hi there, seem to have lost my external harddrive on my desk top, and it is making a beeping sound??

Hard drives don't beep. They make a lot of sounds, but no beeps. If the drive is actually making an unusual noise, it has probably gone bad. Clicking would be a bad disk. Any other noise would be a bad controller board. A good shop may be able to slave your drive to another computer to try and save your data. But don't count on it. By the time a drive makes a loud noise, it's usually gone and unrecoverable.
Before spending a lot of money to recover your data, try the external drive on another computer. Maybe the connection USB port has gone bad on the original computer.

Bad key switch on 1975 merc. 1150 outboard

Here's something to try. There are cans of plastic coat to dip stuff into to insulate them. Then you could also try to remove the terminals and use shrink tubes on the wires and then replace the terminals. If only for a short while you can see if that fixes the problem.

2001 grand prix v6 check engine light stays on

Have you tried disconnecting the battery for at least 30 minutes? This is sometimes the case and the computer just needs to reboot. If that doesn't work, your o2 sensor has probably gone bad. Its not an expensive fix. Leaving the check engine light on puts the computer into a setting called "limp mode". Limp mode is a safety to prevent damage to your vehicle. In this case the computer thinks there is something wrong and by going into limp mode tends to give you less gas mileage and less power performance as well.

Lost all memory on hard drive

Once it's gone, it's gone.
You can try loading the firmware update from Philips website, but this is unlikely to resolve.

1. Plug your GoGear HDD into the computer
2. From ‘My Computer’ right click the GoGear drive and format it. Be SURE you format it as FAT32 and quick compression is not on
3. Create 3 folders on the newly formatted disk called: ‘_System’ , ‘Data’ , ‘Media’
3. Download fom Philips the latest Device Manager for your kind of player
4. Install the Device Manager
5. On the Desktop, right click the Philips Device Manager shortcut, then Properties, then open file location.
6. Copy the folders you see there into the ‘Data’ folder
7. Copy the Firmware.ebn file into the ‘_System’ folder
8. Unplug the device and now it should run fine
