Re: 1993 johnson acting up

Did you disconnect the wires from the oil tank?

 

How does the alarm sound, a steady horn, on and off beeps, an occasional beep, etc.?

You may want to tell us what the model number of the engine is. Be sure to check for any grounded tan wire  on the engine or in the boat or if a temperature sensor or switch is shorted

 

If it is a V6, then you may have a faulty vacuum switch on the fuel system.

Re: 1993 johnson acting up

model is a 1993 johnson VJ150EXET , I will check for any shorted wire or sensors, can a faulty vacuum cause the motor to sound like that ?

Yes, reread my earlier post about a vacuum switch
