''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?
