Oil alarm going off after motor sits for an hour?

Question

archer59

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

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
