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!

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.

    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
