Are you sure the battery is charging up all the way? Alternator tested too?

This was my first thought. But you are getting a voltage reading at the dash.

By the way, don't hesitate to move the battery away from the gas tank. Had I kept my boat another season, that project was on my to-do list.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Well as it turns out there was a pin inside the starter that was misaligned. Problem corrected and was able to get back to the lake this afternoon. Crossing fingers that I can go a day or tow without anymore issues.

I have a 92 190 PS and I moved the battery to the well under the observer's seat - well was designed as a cooler and the hole in the rear is a drain in to the bilge. Factory cables will reach and then some and I mounted a battery switch inside the flip up backrest on the floor (factory positive cable reached. I drilled a 1" hole just above the drain in "cooler" to route cables from bilge. Much better location for battery IMO and I think every boat should have a battery switch. I would send pictures but will not be up at the lake for a few weeks.

Agree about the battery switch. I just added one this spring. So much easier than chasing whatever was slowly draining my batter last year.

battery location 89 prostar

I know this is only somewhat related to this thread but does anyone know a good place to secure a second battery in the bow of a 89 prostar 190?
