Opti Max/Smart Craft

Recommended Posts

This all began, Last year my oil level dropped down below a 1/4 tank and the buzzer for low oil sounded, now the alarm sounds about every other trip out and reads that the "oil reserve is 100%" on one of the Smart Craft Gauges even though the oil tank is full and the oil consumption seems normal. How do I stop this alarm or reset this so it stops sounding?

Thanks HTB

So the buzzer goes off, indicating you're low on oil, but the gauge shows that it's full, is that correct?

Under the cowl there is a small oil resevoir on the port side. Check and make sure it is 100% full with zero air in it.

When the buzzer is supposed to sound when the the main oil tank is empty and indicate the amount left in the reserve tank on the motor. I checked the the reserve tank, it is full with no air and cap is tight and the buzzer still will sound at any time, even if the main oil tank is full. :(, I've tried resetting the guage with a full oil tank but no luck. Any help or sdvice would be great!

That sucks and it's not like you can ignore it, that alarm is a blood curdling sound.

I do know that you can disable the Oil Alarm function in the smart guage fairly easily, but I don't think that will make the alarm go away.

that's a tough one.

Sounds like the float is stuck or needs to be replaced to me... however, I'm not familiar enough with the system to know if it's the float in the main tank or in the tank on the motor.

Do you have different alarms for different things?

Mine has been going off when I'm idling around, or backing the boat off the trailer or from dock. But I think mine is from the water pump impeller. I've heard these should be replaced every 3 years or so as preventative maintenance. Could this be what is causing your alarm to go off?

I had a chance to check this out yesterday and found that there is a float in the oil tank and the oil reserve tank did have about a inch of air in it, topped that reserve off and the alarm quit sounding smile. Thanks for the help and suggestions.

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
