1994 Yamaha Pro 60 Oil injection Warning Buzzer

8 posts in this topic

The oil reservoir is full and the warning buzzer will sound after the motor has been running for a short period of time. I will shut the motor down, wait for a while, re-start the motor and the buzzer will stop. This may or may not repeat itself.

What do I do to solve this problem?

Thanks for the help.

Good question!!

would the overheat and low oil buzzer sound the same?

The motor is shooting a good stream of water so that would tell me it should not be over heating.

But then I am not a mechanic. smile

I am not a mechanic so take it for what its worth. Have you attempted to leave the motor running to see if the warning buzzer goes off? How did you come to the conclusion that it was your oil inj warning buzzer? If indeed it is than it is most likely the oil sensor in the VRO assuming this is what you are equipped with. I have a bad oil sensor on mine that I will disconnect when I get time, I stopped using the oil injection and now mix my gas/oil. I researched the heck out of this before attempting any home remedy, I got thee suggestions from dealer mechanics and SEVERAL others with same issues. One other thing to look for is that your motor is indeed using oil out of that reservoir as the oil injector itself is notorious for failing. Mine is also a Johnson 70 Hp but all the same evil as much as I have read.

Hey barebackjack, On your 70 Jonny, does your tach work correctly? I had issues where my tach stopped working, the VRO alarm kept going off and the battery would discharge (The tach and VRO pump get their signal from the same lead). Turned out to be a bad armature. Replaced the armature and the problem's gone. Phred52

Tach is working fine. Once I disconnect the oil sensor and that alarm light doesnt go off I might be giving you a holler, thats a new one to me, one of MANY! Seems to me these VRO's should be wired to run solely, not combined with other instruments. I like the idea of knowing that my oil is mixed VS wondering.

What kind of buzzer is it? Continuous, or intermittent?

Also, what kind of operations are you doing before it starts to buzz?

Yamaha and OMC's oil injection systems are NOT the same. Try diconnecting both oil res, then the overheat sensor in the cylinder head to see which one it is.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
