When I turn on...

When I turn on the egnition there is no alarmtest signal, a minute later the oillevel alar starts. when i turn off the engine and try again I get a test signal and ther is no alarm. If i go full throttle somtimes the oil alarm starts, the oillevelsensor is disconected and the alarmbox is conected to ground.

I believe it has carborators.
Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 11 months ago

Can you post a pic of how you have the wiring on the alarm set up currently? If you have the module grounded, that will set off the alarm.

Marine Mechanic: Charles, Marine Mechanic replied 11 months ago

Absolutely. There are no time limits here. I will need to see the injection module, the oil tank cap and the oil pump if it is still installed.
