`92 Johnson J65W - why does it beep?

5 posts in this topic

I have a 1992 Johnson 65hp outboard on an Alumacraft CS170. Every once in a while it will beep like crazy. The chart by the steering wheel says the beeping means the oil is low. But the tank can be full, and it still does it. Does anyone have any suggestions to what may be wrong?

Thanks

You better have your oil injector checked! One of my buddies had his go out up on Kab two years ago.

This is a common problem.

Have the VRO pump checked out to make sure that's working correctly. The other thing it could be is the float is stuck in the tank, or the float is wore out, causing the false readings.

Good luck!

Are you sure it is the oil beep, and not overheat alarm? If you haven't changed the impellor in years, give that a try. Thatis what my '96 25hp evinrude was doing, but it was a solid tone, and usually when trolling extended periods. New impellor fixed that \:\)

Good luck!

    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.

    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.

    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
