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!

    • I think they are a valiant and hard working people who suffered under Communist  soviet rule for many years.  I like their sausage also.
    • He will probably sue most of us as well........
    • So what do you think about the poles?
    • "You can't let the people in this country that are the poor people, the people without the money and resources go without healthcare," Trump told the MSNBC program. "I just can't even imagine. You're sick and you can't even go to a doctor. I say one thing, can you not let 25 percent of the people of the country because they have no money go without something?"
        This sure sounds like some form of government sponsored healthcare to me..
    • Your preferred solution would be "nothing", right?   So, sounds like your solution is in the running...   That would be to repeal the whole kit and caboodle and let the people, the employers, the insurance companies, the drug companies and the medical providers duke it out.   I have no information as to what Trump's intentions are beyond repealing ACA.  I'm sure you could find out with a few minutes googling  
    • Nah, you posted a one work reply.  And folks were reefing on d2e over it.  Just noting it was PB that made the original mistake.  
    • .....and I'm not even mad at my bro.
    • The walleye have been MIA on the Iowa River around Coralville this fall. It is not the high water, I don't think--high water spots that have worked great in the past have not produced any walleye for me this year. Not much luck for white bass and wiper, either.   What I have gotten in to the last couple weeks is a nice smallmouth and spotted bass bite, of all things. This is in one of my spots that seldom produced black bass in the past with water levels where they are now. No huge fish, but lots of smallies and spots up to 15" or so. Also a lot of the 6" black crappies that seem to be everywhere on Lake Macbride and the Iowa River this fall.
    • I was thinking they were after the Smallys and that it must have been a tourney with all the boat traffic.
