1993 johnson150 fast strike

I just purchased a 1993 ranger boat with a 1993 Johnson fast strike 150hp motor on it. I have been asking around trying to find out if I have some type of alarm system on the motor is something goes wrong. I do not have the chirp like the new boats have when you turn the key. I have asked the dealer that sold the boat and am getting funny feelings seeing how I;m not getting any answers from them. I need to know what system is on this motor

Having the self-test chirp when first turning the key to ON depends on the style of warning horn installed. Replacement BRP horns have a special circuit in them for the chirp. Many boat companies only install a generic buzzer for a warning system.

 

Test your engine warning system by disconnecting the tan wire on the temp switch on a cylinder head. Ground out the engine harness side of the tan wire terminal and turn the key to ON. You should hear the warning horn. If not have the system checked out completely as you do not want to run the motor without any type of alarm on it.
