    3288 bayliners owners

    1992 3288 Bayliner MV.......Went out for the evening and everything went well till I went to start the engines after being at anchor for a couple of hrs. Starboard engine started like usual but port engine wold not start. Turned the key and busers went off but nothing happened when turnned to start position. Checked to make sure I was in the neutral position, still nothing happened. Started to make way back to the dock on one engine and decided to try again and it started. Went out again this weekend and both engines started just fine. Was at anchor and explained what happend to a friend who has a mechanic background and it happened again. He traced it to a bad ground from a relay. We bypassed the ground from the relay and the engine started. You would think the relay should be replaced but it checked out to be good. Very confusing ????? Does anyone know where the engines are grounded ?????

    Any help from you 3288 owners would be appreciated.

    Might be the Hino safety relay. I had to replace them on both of my engines. Never had any further issues.

      ground is not your problem, look for the white plastic plug that connects the eng wiring to the boat wiring harness , take it apart and clean, its near the starters. very common problem

        2nd that. Those plugs have been removed from my boat and replaced with crimp connectors. Same thing, loose ground = intermittent starting. That's a great place to start.

          Same here. I cut the black and red from that connector and crimped it. The rest I clean up and applied dielectric grease.

            Alaskan Adventurer.... Kevin, Is the plastic plug about 1 inch square or are you talking about the little 3 prong one that connects the safety relay ?

              Yes, approx. 1x1 white plastic connector near the starters. It will have about 6 or more wires. Pull it apart and if you see green corrosion you'll know you have poor connections.

                when I bought the boat the PO was jumping the starter with a jumper wire, did not take me long to find the problem, it has happened two more times even with electric grease , it should be a yearly thing to clean . yes

                      Was out last week and both engines fired up fine. Today the starboard engine wouldn't start. Mines a 1990 with 135 Hinos. Hope this might be the fix.

                        J wagner, As gsilvest said in a previous reply it might be the safety relay. I replace the safety relay on my port engine and have had no problems since. That was it . Safety relay was about $250 but was very easy to remove and install. Hope this works for you.

                          Last night I was able to bypass the relay with a screwdriver across the two points on the relay. The engine fired up. Will now order a couple of relays keeping one as a spare. Thanks for your help!

                            I haven't had this problem (yet) but will go find the plug you all speak of and give it a look and clean if necessary. Has anyone changed theirs to one of those waterproof electrical plugs?

                              these plugs are not needed, they were for production , drop the motor in and go, I have pulled my Hinos one time in 30 yrs, so my point is cut the plug off and use good crimp splices
