The oil lift pump on a '99  225 HP FICHT is not electrical, it is a diaphragm pump powered by the pulses from the crankcases.

 

A warning signal for NO OIL could be from low oil pressure or an electrical problem with the oil injector circuit. The diagnostic software  report can tell if it is pressure or electrical related.

Check the fuses on the oil pump on motor under the cover. The no oil light came but oil still going through oil pump. Had a fuse blown replaced fuse no problems. However, talked to guys who know these Ficht motors and say when fuses go it may be indication oil pump may go as well.

As Bluewater Bill stated above, Fichts have no electric oil pump. It uses a diaphragm pump. No fuse for these.

The oil injector is electric with a fuse on the PDP panel if that's what you are alluding to.
