150txrb oil is not sending from the remote reservoir to the

Customer Question

oil is not sending from the remote reservoir to the power head. I checked the filter it is clear. oil flows during the 180 second test interval but does not send when the motor is running after that. the pump runs with the manual switch and will fill the tank. I have plugged in a known working power head float and still had the same issue. I tested the remote tank float and I believe it is working correctly. I just checked my trim sensor and it isn't broken or damaged. I don't know how to test it. is there any other tests that I can do before buying a cdi?

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

The float would be suspect however if it tested good (easy enough to check with a voltmeter) and if good it would send power when low telling the system to pump in more oil, at this point I would check the electrical wiring and connections in the harness to and from the float for damage, loose, or poor connections such as corrosion/dirt, etc.

Thank you!
