single beep on 175 opti. what are the standard reading on the guages

175 optimax I have a single beep coming on after running for 15 mins or more. Engine is fine in appearance, tell tale continues. Engine not effected.

My question is, on the guages what is normal:

Water pressure
temperature
voltage
cant think what other readings there are other than trim, speed, revs. let me know.

Want to go out this weekend but can't get it on diagnostic until monday! Grrrrr
Anyone in Menai Bridge on Friday with a diagnostic machine? Will pay obviously. If its a faulty alarm code, i'd be gutted to miss this week ends planned trip.

My 200 reads ;

Water Pressure from 0.3 bar at tickover to about 1.1 at full chat
Temp - around 50' up to 53 when the thrmostat opens, down to 43.
Volts - running 14 to 14.3 , engine off 12.2ish

Good luck

Cheers, though the 200 is a 3.0 block, would that make much difference?

135/150/175 is the 2.5 v6 what are typical readings on these?

unfortunately no smartcraft, just the 2008 opti digital guage.

If I check internal oil tank, no water in fuel and the water pressure and temp are normal, what's the liklihood anything else causing the alarm is significant?

Plenty of internet posts stating false alarms.

Any help greatly appreciated pre Friday.

But the reason should still show on the gauge ?

Does it have the little 'AL' in the top right corner of the rev counter ? To show an alarm has gone off -which should show when you cycle the display ?

Linking to the GPS is just an extra and the navman will then show the fault but the gauges should give you all the info you need. Not sure who would look at it this week but there are loads of dealers up there so worth a ring round

cheers ian, will ring around tomorrow. It happened when the old man was using it, once each time he used it for half an hour or so each trip. He looked at the different readings and none looked out of sync, though he wouldn't have been able to see the AL in the corner. Will go and have a look.
