Hi All. Great, I mean, great site! I am re-powering my 18.5 Skeeter fish and ski with a broken-in 2009 E-TEC 175 with I-Command digital gages. Because of the information I found on this web site, I have just about completed the project. I am hoping that someone out there can fill in the last final minor gaps in the required info.

Help me find the current E-TEC key switch pinout to wire harness color code. I see the pin numbers on the switch, but I don't know how to patch it to the harness.

Also, I am re-using my throttle control and the tilt switch wire ends are currently bare.[What is] the part number of the mating tri-pin connector that Evinrude is currently using?

Many thanks for the help, again, great site! Thanx in advance for the help.

Parts breakdown illustrations, part numbers, prices, and ordering info for BRP engines are at then click on PARTS and choose the correct model number.

The key switch wiring chart is in the REFERENCE section of this site. It is an older version than yours, but the color codes and pin locations are the same. Disregard the tach circuit plug and the "kill switch" items as yours is newer than 1996 and it doesn't have those wires.
