High pitch alarm goes on intermittantly at low idle for

Customer Question
High pitch alarm goes...

High pitch alarm goes on intermittantly at low idle for short duration of 1 to two minutes.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

Both engines have normal oil pressure, voltage, engine temps. No performance issues.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?

Paid for you to call us and are still waiting for call while we are still on boat.
Just got the boat and broker gave no orientation. We had short tutorial today from other captain butnalsrm didn’t go off until we were running it
Please call
Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 7 months ago

T​here really isn't any point in calling you, if you have an alarm going off the engine will need to be hooked up to a scan tool. Do you have a scan tool for the engine?
