Default “Ignition Failure see dealer” error code after spark plug change?

Changed the spark plugs in 06 220 ZR6 (no codes showing prior to spark plug change). Turned it on after, runs and drives great, idles great, no misfires, unfortunately error code “ignition failure see dealer” keeps popping up and won’t stop beeping anytime the boat is on. Anyway to get this to stop? Thanks

Replaced them with the same type that were in there, can’t remember if they were resistor or not. Anyone know where the chirper is located to at least cover it up and prevent the migraine?

I should add that I dropped one spark plug when installing it into the hull which had some water in it. Dried it out pretty good before installing, Spaced the gap according to spec.

Did you do them one at a time or remove all then replace? Get all the plug wires on correct plug?

A marine scan device can clear the code alarm , but it may return if the alert condition remains.

At a minimum I would replace the plug that got dropped. ceramic insulators are extremely fragile and there may be a haiirline crack or something else you didn't notice. If you still have the old plugs it would be no big deal to swap it out real quick.

In aviation, drop a plug and it is toast. Not to be used. Even though there are two per cylinder.

Do you remember what hole you installed the dropped plug into? Would be interested in knowing if that is the plug that is setting the fault code.

Does anyone know where the chirper warning speaker is located? Seems to be coming from the dash but can’t locate it wanna cover it in tape to avoid the migraines.

never use the plug that was dropped except for a weight. but plugs are cheap put a new one or new ones in and save the hassle of guessing. or waiting for the tow to come to you out in the ocean with the thunderstorm approaching.
