Oil alarm going off after motor sits for an hour?

5 posts in this topic

I had pulled up on a sand bar after triming up motor, and was there 30 minutes when the low oil alarm started beeping. I can't see anything wrong. Could the sensor be bad. Looking for ideas. The motor is a 94 Merc 75.

The oil injection was disabled years ago when it failed, and I have been mixing gas for years now with no problem.

Thanks,

Nick

I finally had some time to pull out the shop manual. When I get home I'll take a look and see what was done with the two blue wires that are suppose to go to the sensor in the oil reservoir.

Looks like I need a warning module. There is continuity between the two blue wires that should be attached to the sensor in the oil reservoir. Anyone have one to sell?

4-5 years ago I bought a used boat and motor with a 60 hp Mecury, one of the first trips the motor started beeping, because the rig was new to me I didnt have a clue. It turn out to be the low oil warning even thou there was plenty of oil in the reservoir. Replaced it and have had no problems since.

I found a warning module locally ... but $96! I didn't think I could find another hobby more expensive than amateur ( ham ) radio, I was wrong. grin.gif

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
