    Question volvo penta sx 200 running problems

    i have a volvo 200 sx stern drive, and has about 230 hours on it. serviced regularly. dropped it in the other day and when i turned the key it started with what appears to be half power and then cut out, lasts maybe 10 seconds. after about 20 tries and doing the same thing it finally fired up but the error light appears. (orange on dash)
    anyone experienced this? i didnt take it out as we were going offshore. when flushing the engine at home it ran perfectly but error light still on.
    thanks in advance!
