Can someone give me a lesson on checking the rectifier, with a volt meter, on my 99 Merc 25 2 stroke?

Thanks!

You're going to need a volt-ohm meter with a diode test mode.
and the test specifications for your year/model outboard.
That means having the shop manual for your outboard.
Connecting the different leads to the volt-ohm meter in different combinations
check to see if the measured readings fall within the correct minimum-maximum.

or a quick test method is in the link below...

                               A fried rectifier?   :eek:

Why does that sound like someone had a major instrument malfunction,
                          in the proctologist's office?

Sir, please tilt you motor up all the way and cough please.  Yup, your rectifier is worn out bad...
Didn't mom tell you this would happen?   ;D
