    Cummins explanation on their spec sheets says:

    Accelerator Pedal or Lever Position Sensor 1 Circuit
    Voltage Below Normal, or Shorted to Low Source

    You have electronic throttle controls and the Cummins system is sensing low voltage at the sensor that detects the throttle position. You may have a problem with the sensor or it may be with the throttle control itself. The sensor may not leave you stranded, but a bad throttle control could mean you come home in guardian mode....real slow. The challenge here may be in who supplied the control to Sea Ray. If it were part of the engine package, then Cummins is the right call, but if the throttle control was provided by Mercruiser, then your Sea Ray dealer may the the right call. I would call Cummins and tell them your fault code and ask them if they or Mercruiser is the right repair source.

    Good luck with it.........

    How do you 'clear it smart craft'? I have the same problem every time I start and it takes forever to get my engines started...
