Reasons the product is recalled

The main engine wire harness may be routed incorrectly allowing it to be too close to the DTS shift actuator. Repeated movement of the DTS shift actuator arm may cause the engine wire harness shielding to wear through, exposing the wires and causing a direct short circuit to ground, which could create an ignition source prior to the fuses interrupting the circuit.

The hazards to consumers

Risk that the defect could create an ignition source in the engine compartment and pose a fire hazard.

What consumers should do

Stop using the product and return it to a Mercury Marine dealer who will inspect the engine wire harness and, if it is found to be routed incorrectly, rectify the engine free of charge.
