    I read your thread and I will tell you what it sounds like to me. It sounds like the water impeller has gone bad. Pull off your lower unit. there is a little rubber wheel that should be replaced every couple of years. I had this same thing happen to me a couple of years ago and it was a simple fix. I believe the water impeller was around $25.he other thing I was told to have checked was the sensor. It is possiable that the sensor has gone bad.
    good luck gary:cool2:
