I have a 1998 Mercury 225 EFI. I run it just about every weekend. In the past month or so sometimes I go to turn the key to crank it and nothing happens as if it was in gear or something. I can play around with trimming the motor up or down, sometimes this works sometimes not, or just continue trying the key and eventually it will crank. When it cranks I generally have no more problems that trip. It is a very sporadic issue. I have checked all connections, always make sure its out of gear to start. Just thought someone could give me an idea of what to check next if they have had the problem. Thanks.
