Have Boat Questions? Ask a Boat Repair Expert.
Hi Ron, my name is Jason.
Does your boat have smartcraft gauges?
Okay step 2 would be to have it hooked up to a scan tool to pull a code and see what is causing the alarm. Has that been done?
It would need to be done in order to find the true cause of the alarm. How is it I can be of help to you?
The solid alarm is caused by engine overheat, low oil pressure, or if the ECM thinks either situation is happening because of a bad sensor, or a short in the wiring between the sensors and ECM. Throwing parts at the engine can get expensive quickly. And if it is a wiring problem vs a sensor problem throwing parts at it can simply be fruitless. If you had the Smart craft gauges we could pull a code out of that to get you pointed in the right direction. But without those gauges, or the scan tool, all we can do is speculate.
The website has charged you to speak with me. Is there anything I can help you with, or did you want to call it quits?
