I have a 2001 Merc 4 stroke 115 hp and never had a problem with it. Matter of fact still runs like brand new. First problem. Motor wont charge battery. Shows up 11.5 while running. What is usually the problem with this. thanks good luck.

I believe Mercury had a "recall"/warranty issue with some of their motors for this.
I have a 2002 60hp and believe it was the voltage regulator I think. So may not affect you, but may be worth contacting your dealer?

Find a shop manual in paper on on line. The part is called a rectifier, stator or alternator as well as it could be the voltage regulator.

Find out what you have. As well as see if it is a recall item. But at that age not sure it would be covered. But worth checking it out.

I would assume there are several videos on youtube that would walk you through testing and replacing.

At the simplest it is just a part that needs to be replaced.

Re: 2001 115hp fourstroke charging problem-Update:Problem Solved

Voltage Regulator/Rectifier was at fault.
Ordered a new one from BAM Marine part #881346T

Here is the whole thread.

Had the exact same problem wit my 2001 125 merc 2 stroke. The voltage regulator actually melted. Replaced it myself and everything has been perfect.
