    1988 Capri intermitently won(39)t turn over-gctid811380

    I need help with my 1988 Bayliner Capri. I have some sort of intermittent electrical problem. Sometimes it will run absolutely perfect and other times in will run a few seconds and then die. When it dies it won't turn over but the outdrive still has power and all the gauges still work. I'm thinking it's either the neutral safety switch or the ignition itself. Has anyone else ever had this problem and if so can you give a guy some pointers?

      ***updated info*** its a 1988 Capri 187 with the 3.0. It was running perfectly and then just quit running. Sometimes when I turn the key the starter will engage and the boat will run for a couple of seconds (literally) and then die again and at other times when I hit the key there is nothing. However, every time I turn the key on the dash gauges come on and the outdrive will still work. I thought maybe it was the kill switch in the dash messing up but I replaced that and it still does the same thing. If there is any other information needed please let me know. I would love to get out and enjoy my boat

        It could be the ignition switch, so test that first,

        If she is not cranking, check the shift lever neutral safety switch,

        Then check your starter slave solenoid.

          Thank you Ruffryder!! I was leaning towards those but didn't think about the slave solenoid. I hate electrical problems since they come and go when they want
