Downloading Mercury Engine Data

I recently had my 2006 90-HP EFI Mercury serviced. I asked the service manager to provide me with engine stats...starts, RPM ranges/hours. etc. Anyway, they "forgot" to do it and hesitated to plug it back in when I picked it up.
Is the software available to do this download? Thanx, Hal of Waseca, MN

You need more than the software. You need the proprietary (and expensive) Mercury digital diagnostic tool (DDT). From everything I have heard, Mercury motors cannot be connected to your lap top computer. You need their specialized hardware.

Can the engine hours be downloaded from a 2003 Merc 4-stroke?

In 2003 many of the engines being sold as a Mercury four-stroke were actually made by Yamaha, and the engine control module may not be compliant with the rest of the Mercury engines with the SmartCraft style of electronic control.

The Mercahas were not SmartCraft compatible according to Merc websites at the time. That's probably why the Merc service department can't get the stats from the 90.

I asked my dealer to tell me how many hours were on my '04 90 Mercaha one time. They told me no prob, and then they called me back saying that kind of info can not be provided by it's ECM. Kinda sucks, I'd really like to know how many hours are on it, must be around 500 by now...
