Hello, my name is***** will be assisting you today.

At what RPM does this problem happen?

Does the engine shake when this is happening?

Do you have a multimeter?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Don't know at what rpm. Motor does shake when it happens. No multi meter

What do you think is wrong with it
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.

I am thinking a bad switch.

Is your motor a tiller? Or remote throttle?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Remote. It's a side console
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.

Ok,

This alarm, it is a beep... beep... beep, and not a solid tone, correct?

See if your engine has this switch installed.

What about the alarm?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Alarm is the same one u are talking about
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.

Beping or solid tone, there is a difference in the causes?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Beeping tone
Expert:  Charles replied 2 years ago.

Ok,

That is a sensor. To locate which one, you are going to need to be able to do some testing. This will take a meter. Do you think that you can get one?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
