Hello from Will in OZ

Not sure where most of the members of this forum are but I am in Australia near the most Easterly point which is Byron Bay.
Regardless of location I think the 90hp 2stroke Mercury would have to be world wide so hoping to get some input to my post as per below.
Any tips on how to post more appropriately Will B much appreciated.
Best Regards

90hp 2stroke Mercury oil warning module

Recently had problems in this unit and find that the sensor - two blue wires is not connected so presumably faulty. I have had the boat for three years now and only problem with oil was putting too much in the tank and having it spill out on tilt. Recently the oil warning alarm started going off. I disconnected the module and it stopped so assume faulty module. Why would - should I bother replacing it if the sensor is not connected??
Oil is clearly getting mixed OK as the engine is running fine. As long as I remember to check and top up oil what possible advantage trouble shooting and replacing faulty module??
On the other hand any easy way to check oil mixture is good??
First time on this forum so keen to hear from you.
Best Regards
Will B Mullumbimby

Hello and welcome, WillB.

No idea about your problem (have you flushed with fresh water after sea immersion?) but I thought I'd say Hi anyway.
