Thanks. What did you do to fix it?
If i recall correctly the sensor is in the oil reservoir. I’m not sure if I had to replace the whole reservoir unit, or if it was just the sensor. I recall it didn’t take more than a half hour or so to fix (I’m not a mechanic). Look at the placement of the sensor and you’ll be able to tell if you can get it out. I don’t have the boat anymore or I would look for you. Sorry my memory isn’t that good!
Thank you for your help. I'll check it today.
Thanks for everyone's input regarding my problem. Turned out to be a faulty oil sensor.
Good to know for us new to oil injected motor owners.
When that happens to me I just cut the wire. If the motor doesn’t self destruct in about 10 minutes I know it was a faulty sensor
Just heat shrieked the connectors saw a fix on u tube. Regime magnet back onto float.
Thankfully I have resolved the problem. Removed the oil tank. Removed retaining clip that holds the float onto the shaft. Turned the tank upside down and the float and (separated) magnetized washer fell out. Cleaned the washer and float with a degreaser and applied an adhesive glue that is compatible with oil and gas (picked it up at an automotive parts store). Replaced float with magnetic washer attached and replaced retaining clip. Filled tank, turned ignition key on and no more alarm. Thete is a u tube video out on this fix. Good luck to those who have this problem.
