My Quicksilver 3000 Classic sidemount Control assembly is stuck in neutral the button will not pop back out after starting engine and I cannot get the control to go into forward or reverse

    The reply I received only shows a parts assembly of all of the components in the control assembly. I need to know which parts need to be replaced to solve the problem of the Nuetral button being stuck in and not popping out when I try to put the control assembly in Reverse or forward. It6 is stuck in nuetral or the starting position. Once again this is a Quicksilver 3000Classic Pontoon Boat control the motor trim is not part of the assembly and all of the assemblyies shown in the reccomendations have the motor trim located in the control arm. On my boat the motor trim is on the console not the control arm

In many cases this button gets cracked internally.On the upper site it looks ok.But internally it does not have any connection due to broken.open the control assembly and check. The plastic button must be broken off, allowing access to the nut that connects the control arm to the control box . The plastic button is not the choke, it just allows you to give the engine throttle without engaging forward gear. There is a kit for rebuilding this mechanism. It fails frequently. To open the control box  you have to remove the box from the surface that it is mounted on first, then you can take it apart. There should be screws that go through the box and through the surface it is mounted on, with nuts and washers on the other side. Sometimes they screw these into the glass or plywood directly, but this is usually not done. 
also remove the throttle arm/handle  this is how you take off the handle to get to the switch and wires.My Quicksilver 3000 Classic sidemount - clear.gifto remove the handle shift the control backwards to about 1/4 to 1/2 position this will enable you to pop-out the push button for neutral. behind that button is a bolt remove it and the handle will come off.But if this procedure is not helping and the neutral button is not popping out then  the problem lies in the fact that you can't see exactly how the neutral button is attached to the rest of the assembly. There is no lip or flange surrounding the radius of the button but it does have about a three inch shaft extending from the inside center of the button. It's the end of this shaft that fits VERY snugly into the cable box holding it in place.clear.My Quicksilver 3000 Classic sidemount - clear.gifs=clear.gifPull the throttle back (reverse) about 1/4 to 1/2 way. The key to getting the neutral button out is applying equal amounts of pulling pressure on opposite sides of the button. Two small flat-blade screwdrivers across from each other should work fine. Once the button is out use an 18 mm deep-well socket to remove the bolt holding the throttle arm on. Now the arm should come off rather easily.Also check the internal trim switch ans is wirings.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    The real problem isn't the button. It's the linkage behind the button which isn't returning to position. I took my console off to get to the back of the 3000, removed the plastic back, lubed the linkages and it worked. Put it back together and it would lock up again after using the throttle only button. A couple of taps on the bezel, the parts moved back where I could shift. Anyway this problem is the downfall of the unit. If it can be fixed it would be by taking apart the throttle lockout, lubing and modding it with a stronger spring, less friction or something like that. I'm too lazy so I'll live with it till I have to fix it.

I hanve a warning buzz in my quicksilver motor control in my boat


Many of those gave a short buzz to tell you they were working. It's when your running and they buzz you need to shut down immediatly and find out what is wrong (engine heat, no oil ??_)

Just bought boat & prop will not in gage all the time


put your motor on the garden hose after you remove the propeller (you don't want to step into a spinning blade). remove the cover and start the motor.

Have some one shift the motor (without engaging the throttle).. This will show you which cable is the shift cable.Disconnect the shifter, and while it's running, shift it full forward and full reverse to fin the halfway point. Next return the control box to neutral and adjust the connector. Start it up and see if the control box will shift the gear box as far as you did by hand. If not you need to take the control box apart and move the cable anchor so you get more movement. Get a repair book and take pictures as the guts of a control box can be VERY confusing.

Need to replace my shifter on my 1994 well craft 243 prima. I have a 5.7 liter v8 mercruiser engine. I need to replace a concealed mount shifter with a two tilt switches, one says trailer


Some where is an easy pop off plastic cove on the big end of the shift handle. When it is popped and you can see an allen head in the middle of the handle, you can remove the handle and let hang by the tilt wires. under the handle will be 3 or more long bolts that hold the shift control to the console. After you remove them the console will go inside the panel taking the handle and wires with it.

NOW comes the tricky part- the key switch has a power wire going to the control/ Try not to break it. Sometimes you need to loosen the key switch from the dash and allow the wires to follow the control out the back of the panel. Now you can see the cables and remove the faulty one.

That control box is very complicated and you should find some old merc mechanic to do that. The steering is very basic and will either have a wire wound cable that spools on to the steering hub, or a flat rack and pinion style which can go together either top or bottom. So try it out and reverse it if it steers backward.

No sound, remote locked or not working?? and i cant get the menu to work on the tv itself, the volume is stuck on 0, cant move HELP


The buttons on the front of the set fail, (like mine did) even if they never get used. Probably the 'DOWN Volume' in your case is stuck closed. Try pecking on it first. My remote stopped working but so did the manual buttons too. While poking around on stuff I swished my finger across the buttons and it all started working so I knew I was on to something. I never figured out which one was the culprit as it continued to cause problems and was replaced as a complete unit under warranty.

The other quick check/fix is to remove the trim plate around the button plate (pop out stays like the speaker covers) , then remove the button assembly (3 screws plus pop out stays like the speaker covers) then unplug the multi colored lead from the button circuit board. This puts the Remote back in control and it will work just fine like this, minus manual control of course.
