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

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
