Author Topic:   Newer Mercury Outboard Battery Question

Hello. Relatively new to the boating world, and I recently purchased a used 2001 Mercury 50 HP ELPTO outboard. In addition, I also purchased a new control unit. (MSC 4000, side mount) I cannot figure out how the battery is connected to the outboard, on my older Mercury it was quite obvious as there were two battery cables. At the engine end, there is the single large cable, which I understand where it connects, and four smaller wires; a baby blue wire, a green wire, and two brown wires, one darker than the other.
The manual I ordered doesn't arrive until next weekend, and I would like to at least start this outboard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Adam Horsman
