I have a 1999 Bayliner Capri 1850 LS. What are the "Depth" and "Annunciator" buttons supposed to do?
Make (of engine): Mercruiser
Model (of engine): 3.0
I have a low volume beeping about once per second, that won't stop. Oil pressure, temp, voltage are all good.
Depth would be for the depth finder, and Annunciator means to announce or one who makes announcements or announces.
Best guess, Annunciator is the horn do you have a drive lube bottle on the motor? Is it full?
That's very obvious information. My question is in regard to my specific boat; what do the switches do on this boat? Is the "Depth" button supposed to turn the depth finder on and off? Or is it supposed to silence a depth alarm? It doesn't seem to do anything on my boat.
I'm sorry, I didn't see your comment about the drive lube bottle. Unfortunately, I am not at the boat now, but I will check next time I am there. That is a good suggestion.
Bayliner is known for having switches that do nothing. Your boat is an assembly line built boat. Those switches may never have been hooked up to anything. That's why I just said what they could be used for.
