1998 Mariner 75 Autolube sounder

I already have a CD of the workshop manual, but I can't see whether there is supposed to be a sounder within the outboard cover or whether the leads merely feed through to a console based sounder (initial beep on startup/ autolube oil low/ overtemperature) - can anyone comment please ?

The background is that I have discovered a few non terminated wires flapping around the engine which appear to be from an overheat sensor (leading from the engine block between the top and middle cylinder); the oil pump and one other (not sure where this goes at the moment) - I'm hoping that the sounder was not removed to get rid of any annoying over heat alarms ...

The wires plug into the loom that goes to the comander 2000 remote on mine.
the alarm sounder is in there.
and mine goes off for no reason. spent loads of hours tracing it out. checking and replacing alarm unit and senders. and found out the 2000 remote have a issue and the alarm slowly comes on and off.
