I have an 07' 290 Signature with twin V6 Volvo Penta's. We were out for a cruise up the river last night, running at about 28mph, when the starboard engine simply shut off. It was like someone had turned the key off. Obviously electrical in nature, as I lost my fuel gauge and trim tab monitor at the same time. When I went to re-start, there was no 3 chime and no fuel pump noise.
As I began to search around, thinking maybe ignition switch or something like that, I made note of the rubber covered button, that sits on the back of the throttle box (one for each throttle). Running out of options, I pushed the button for the starboard engine. Power came back, and the engine started as normal.
No where in the Chaparral manual can I find an explanation of what this obvious re-set button is, or why it may have tripped off.
Any thoughts fella's ?
