Re: Engine start shuts off chartplotter

Sounds like the starter is intact drawing lots of extra power and yes fix the ground on the motor BTW job weld is a verry poor conductor of electrical current. Any time you have poor connections it takes extra power to overcome that just like corroded connections. Also there are several threads on here that have addressed the addition of a starting battery complete with scamatics I'm on way out for weekend do a search for wireing solar or adding installed chargers. Hope this helps
