Evinrude Ficht 115 question

Have any members of the forum had the 'no oil' warning light come on during operation of this model? If so what was the cause? Full tank of oil so it wasn't the obvious!

I don't know about boats but on vehicles the normal function of the oil pressure light (and indeed most other warning lights) is to indicate a failure in the sender unit and nothing else....

By the time the sender fails - the bulb or connection has already failed!
