''NO OIL'' light?????

5 posts in this topic

1998 Fish Hawk 1650 single console. There are four warning lights as part of the speedometer. Hot, low oil, no oil, and something else.

I took the boat out two weeks ago and drove it for 20 minutes straight, no issues, ran fine. Today I take it out to the lake, starts fine, takes off fine after a couple minutes of idle, then at full plane the NO OIL light lites up and buzzer goes off. I slow down and kill it. Not knowing where this sensor is, I check the res and it full, primer bulb is firm. Manual says NOTHING about this light. Start motor again and it lights/buzz after about a minute.

Let sit for an hour as I play with new fishing gear. Decide to leave and figure I will give it one more shot. Runs fine, no light/buzzer all the way to the landing, so I keep running it for the rest of the day, never comes on again. It def still smells like it burning mix with gas as I would expect.

Anyone know where the NO OIL sensor is located? And what kind of a sensor it is?

What kind of motor do you have on this rig? The boat info is helpfull, but the motor has the oil sensor on it.

The float is in the tank mounted inside your boat. I think the no oil sensor comes from the VRO pump though.

Yeah, thats what I have been hearing. Does anyone know of a simple way to troubleshoot to determine if its the sensor circuit that is failing or if its the VRO pump that is failing?

    • I have nothing good to say about his presidency
    • So they called Reilly back up, but part of me is kind of hoping that Prosser plays. Earlier this year he was very solid. You never get elite level from him, but I think he was dependable out there and I have been a big critic of his for a long time. The ceiling is obviously higher for Reilly and I want him to be a regular at some point, but if he isn't going to get 10 mins a night he is better off in Iowa and play Prosser. What impresses me are these numbers: 141 goals for (Tied 4th), 96 goals against (tied #2), +45 differential (#2). When was the last time a Wild team was in the top 5 in goals scored? We have a very balanced team and it is fun to watch, which this balance is also why slumps by Parise and Pominville don't kill this team or at least haven't until this point. I will say it again, I was a huge proponent of signing Staal. NO, I didn't think he was going to be leading our team in scoring, but what I was excited about was that it would mean that Coyle/Granlund could play wing where they should be. Those two are playing great overall and both have been playing wing pretty much entire season thus far. We can also thank Gravovac for his role too because without him, one of the two would be playing center most likely.
    • I didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted, but I was able to take my new fish house out on the ice last weekend.  Fishing was slow for most of the weekend, but we had a good time otherwise.   I have some of the lights and tv mounted up temporarily till I start putting up the carsiding.  I'm just a little nervous about starting on the carsiding until I know exactly how to do my lift bunks.  I'd hate to put all that up and realize I don't have my furring in the right spot.   Furnace ducts are also ran temporarily, they'll be covered by cabinets when it's all said and done.  Most of the day saturday we didn't need the furnace anyways.  The sun kept it 10 degrees higher than what we set the furnace at!   Right now she's nothing pretty, but she got the job done without any problems on her initial trip.
    • Cooter ol' pal,  I think maybe you tend to skip over your inherent decency when you refer to President Obama as " a POS" My guess is you actually have a little more respect than that for a man to did the heavy lifting for the US for eight years and,  on more than one occasion,   has proven he is a decent man who really cares about the issues we face. You can disagree of course with some things-or all things for that matter-the man has done but he DOES deserve your respect. He is definitely not,  as you put it "a POS" and I'd guess you really have more class than that.
