Ok so every time I turn the key off when boat is running it pops the breaker
Very wierd!! Runs fine and charging about 15 volts
If I shut off breaker pops like clockwork.
Reset it and I fires right up
Any thoughts???

Thanks

Chris

Same thing would happen to me evry time i shut mine off also. I had a bad breaker changed it out and never had a problem agin. Good luck mine was simple and thats good becuse i hate wiring.

Moo had a bad habit like that also early on. It miraculously disappeared when I replaced the ignition switch (Which had fallen apart in my hand, not that I suspected it......)  :screwy:

Try a new breaker.

When the alternator is running, the field has to collapse, this will typically cause a very quick spike in current upon shut down, especially true with a one ware alternator (which I seldom recommend).

I just thought abour something.
This only started when i was using a remote starter hooked up the whole time so I could mess with the carb, and I was by myself.
Do you think this could be the issue>?

ALL FIXED

I disconnected the remote starter and problem solved
Very weird
Any reason a remote starter would cause breaker to pop once I shut engine off?

Oh we'll I'm happy
