1998 Merc 115 2 stroke

Question

spudhauler

Should this motor emit a beep or alarm sound when you start it? Mine does not and I wonder if it should or if mine is bad. I know it is to supposed beep if it overheats or low oil level is detected. How do you test it to see if system is working correclty? Since my outboard does not beep at start-up, are repairs needed or am I being paranoid? Thanks for any advice.

My '94 Merc 175 has a horn. Last summer I replaced mine because I noticed no beep when I turned the key on. My horn was inside the throttle box, but I don't know about your model. Most motors/boats I've seen has an alarm when the ignition is turned on to test the system/motor.

Sometimes the boat will have the gauges/alarm horn under the dash. I have the old throttle box design, that's where my horn was.

Your motor has an alarm, it should beep when you turn key on without starting the motor, it's a "courtesy check" to assure it's working.

You might have to have it checked.

If your remote control is a sidemount (you see the actual control box with lever and the key is on box) the buzzer is inside it.

If you have a recessed mount (you just see the handle sticking out of side panel and ignition key is on dash) the buzzer is located under the dash somewhere, you can check it yourself mybe there's a wire diconnected, it's approx 1.5" diameter round black "puck".

That's funny, my 98 115 doesn't beep either. I was wondering about that. The key is on the dash. I wonder if the alarm thing did't get deep sixed during the prerig at Lund. Or at the dealer. It never did beep when turning on.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
