Hello. My name is Tan.

This may take more than one reply to solve your issue.

Could I get the engine serial number please?

Constant alarm is over heat.

When was the last time you had the raw water pump serviced?

The raw water pump service intervals are every 100 hours of use or once a season or which ever comes first.

The other thing that will cause an alarm is low oil pressure, low water pressure.Then intermittent alarms are low gear lube or sensor failure.

When I have a customer with a constant alarm sounding the first thing I do is service the water pump.

This applies to all Marine inboard or sterns drive boats.
