Assuming you have a side mount control with warm up lever.
Lift warm up lever fully
Start engine, to be safe wait 20 seconds
Lower warm up lever all the way down wait 20 seconds.
Raise warm up lever fully.
The winterization process should initiate.

Note: the warm up lever must bring the throttle up above 3/4 throttle. A missing throttle roller or a large gap (more than 3/16") between the throttle roller and throttle arm may not provide enough throttle movement.

According to my 2007 SM, leave it Up until it shuts itself off.  Then lower the throttle lever.  Last time I did it, I did need to go more than the 50% in Step 1, as mentioned by Rick above.

Phil

Remote Control Method
• Shift outboard into NEUTRAL position. Advance throttle control to 1/2 throttle (50%) position and start the outboard. The outboard will run at IDLE speed (SystemCheck lights will illuminate).
• After approximately 15 seconds (SystemCheck lights will go off) move throttle control to IDLE position (SystemCheck lights will illuminate again). Run the outboard with throttle control in IDLE position for another 15 seconds (System- Check lights will go off).
• Next, with outboard still in NEUTRAL, advance throttle control to FULL (100%) throttle position (SystemCheck lights will flash). The outboard will automatically go to FAST IDLE speed and begin internal fogging/lubrication.
• Allow outboard to run until it automatically shuts off (approximately 60 seconds). Turn key switch to OFF position.

If there is uncertainty about the self-winterization process having been completed successfully, repeat the process. There is little harm in twice-in-a-row winterization, and there is some risk in no winterization.
