    Good day all. I have a 2006 Amberjack with 350 Horizon Mercs. My starboard motor turns over but will not start. When I try to start it I do not hear the fuel pump activate. I checked the connection and there is no power during start up. I unplugged the oil pressure sensor wire on the port motor thinking that might be bad on the starboard side but the fuel pump activated on the port motor. The only thing out of the norm that has occurred is a fresh water hose blew on the hot water heater which is on the starboard side. I check all the connections I could find to make sure when I fixed the hose I didn't hit anything and all seem okay. Any help in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance, Mark

    There's a fuse in a weather pack on top of the motor by the ecm.

    I assume you have fuel pump relays to control the electric fuel pumps. They are know to fail and cause all sorts of headaches. Swap the one from the port engine and so it the starboard engine will start.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I did find the root of the issue. It was the relay. There also was a bent connection where the relay plugs into. Repairs have been made. Thanks again for the advice.
