Alarm

Can anyone help on this one. 60 hp Merc engine circa 1996. New Merc throttle control fitted about 3months ago. Engine runs absolutely fine but I'm now getting a constant ignition live beep from the throttle!

Any ideas

Thanks in advance

Buzz

A constant beep means its overheating, or you might have a poor connection to the temp sensor...

That engine has only 2 alarm sensors, overheat and low oil warning. Disconnect them while the horn is going off and see if they switch off.

Guys

Thanks for the note. I suppose its a daft question can anyone let me know how to disconnect the sensors? At this point the throttle is probably not the fault as it is new. The old throttle (very used and battered) had the same alarm but intermitantly.

Just to confirm it is not the clam shell model.

Turbo, can you PM with cost of replacement sensors please.


Cheers

To disconnect them just find the sensors, One for temp is on the head near spark plugs, follow it back until you find either a bullet terminal or the point at which is can be disconnected. Oil level comes from the bottom of the oil tank, should be 2 blue wires. Prices do you have a serial number or an idea of age?

Just to through something else in, it could also be your oil warning module playing up. If you have a new control box and the horn still sounds with all the senders disconnected it could be warning module.
Have attached a couple of images one of the temp sender (item number 31) and oil Level sender (number 10)
