My 2000 195 with the 210hp motor with throtle body; dies at idle and the check engine light stayes on.
I first thought it was my impeller, so i changed that. I also thought it may have been my fuel pump. but when i idle the boat up it does not die, although the check engine light and alarm still are on. I am trying to avoid taking the boat to the shop. But i cant really figure out whats going on. I do know that the water is flowing, i started it in my drive way with a garden hose; has any one had any thing like this or have any ideas.
also is there a list anywhere that list all the things that set off the check engine light.

Double check the oil level.

oil level is good and oil pressure reads normal.
