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 want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
