Warning Buzzer on 1999 Yamaha F100

5 posts in this topic

ok, the problem I am having is that when I run the motor at anything above 4500 rpms for any length of time, the warning buzzer sounds and the motor goes into safety mode. There is plenty of oil and the motor is spitting out water. Also, as long as I run the motor around 4000 rpms it runs smooth with no problems. I have read other numerous posts and I have been trying everything.

I cleaned the battery terminals, changed the oil filter, backflushed the cooling system and checked for loose wires.

My boat does not have the digital gauges so I am unaware if this is something related to the oil pressure or overheating.

Although the last time the buzzer sounded, I immediately took off the cover and put my hands right on the motor and it did not feel hot to the touch so I am assuming it is not overheating. Which leads me to believe that it is something to do with the oil pressure.

Could this be a bad sensor? Or could it be a weak oil pump or something. Ive called a few different shops and they all give me a different answer so I am leary that the problem wont get fixed unless I can nail it down prior to bringing it in. ANY suggestions? (Sorry about writing a book)

I just went thru the exact same thing, for the last 7 weeks with a F115.

Diagnostics showed no codes.

Oil pressure and water temp were fine.

Spents several weeks in the shop.

Finally got it fixed on Thursday, after spending a couple hours on the water with the dignostic computer hooked up.

Bad ECM board.

Expensive to repair, but I dont care if its your employees, your outboard or your wife, if you cant trust it its not worth owning.

Havent gotten the bill yet, but the number $1100.00 for the ECM was mentioned a couple times.

That would really sting....I did buy a water pump rebuild kit with a new impeller. Figured I would start there. Should be here in a day or so. Now im really crossing my fingers that this will take care of it. By the way, I did a little more checking and the water stream seemed a little weak so im thinking it may be an overheating problem.

Good chance the water pump is your problem. I had the same problem with my 150 a while back.

The new impeller took care of it.

Good luck - be optimistic!

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
