Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
Overheat would be constant horn, low oil would be a beep beep beep over and over.
Does the alarm go off as soon as you start it, or only when it runs a bit? Have you disconnected the temp sensor yet?
What it sounds like is the temperature sensor is bad, and activating before it should. The way the alarm is supposed to work is the temp sensor would tell the warning module to blast a constant tone, and the low oil switch would tell it to blast a beep beep beep over and over. Does that make sense? If yes, did you have any further questions on the issue?
I think that should do it. But I work for tips so I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.
Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.
What is the serial number on your engine?
Got it. If you disconnect the temp sensor all together does the alarm still beep?
If disconnecting the tan lead makes the alarm stop the problem is a bad temp sensor. All the sensor does is ground out the tan wire when the engine is overheating to tell the warning module there is a problem. Does that make sense?
The temp sensor is only supposed to ground out when hot, when the engine is overheating, and is supposed to be just an open circuit when the engine is not overheating.
This is not an oil tank issue, if it was it would beep over and over, it would not beep constantly. So we are not talking about the oil tank sensor, just the temp sensor. Does that make sense?
It is mounted in the cylinder water jacket cover. Click this link to pull up a picture, it is #22
That should cover it. I do have to run for a bit. But if you have a further question on the issue I will get back to you in a little over an hour.
Okay i'm back. I take it you saw the diagram. Did you have any further questions in this issue?
I'm sorry I don't follow you.
All I would need to know is does disconnecting the tan wire silence the alarm? Yes or no?
The problem is a defective temp sensor. Replacing it will fix your problem.
Please let me know if you run into any problems when trying to put through a rating for me.
No problem if you want to wait on the rating. Please keep in mind the website has already charged you to speak with me, and if a rating is forgotten about they will keep your deposit and not credit me for helping you out.
Let me know how you make out.
Hello, just checking in. Any progress?
Okay keep me posted.

Glad to hear you got it!
