is the no oil senser in the tank,can it be disconnected


The oil tank only contains the LOW OIL switch. It can be disconnected and does not affect anything. It's circuit goes directly to your SystemCheck gauge.

The NO OIL switch is pressure activated and  threaded into the oil pump assembly on the motor. It looks very much like a traditional oil pressure switch on a car with a single wire coming off it. An oil injector with an electrical problem can also activate a NO OIL alarm.

Re: No oil alarm

I have a 2008 250 etec and oil alarm keeps going off. had air bubble in lines so dealer replaced oil tank and lines. no oil light went off again so they changed the oil pump. no oil went off again and now it's a mystery. oh yeah this is after powerhead replacement with 3 hours. I think evinrude won't be the next motor I purchase

Re: No oil alarm

It sounds more like parts swapping than finding out what is causing the alarms.

 

If the system is not bled correctly after each  new part is installed, you will still have alarms.

 

Ask your dealer if the tech followed the latest bulletin on bleeding trapped air  -  #2016-04(S) Rev C

 

You can also contact Evinrude about your reoccurring problem by emailing the serial number, dealer name, and what you wrote here to  http://www.brp.com/en/forms/contact-us.html

What is your engine model number as the 115 HP Evinrude E-TEC came out as a 2007 model? We need accurate information to be able to help you out.

What warning light came on when the alarm sounded?

Re: No oil alarm

I recently had no oil light come on. Brought to the dealer. I thought I was told when I bought the boat that the motor had a 10 year warranty. Just found out it was only 5 and was up at the end of last season. Dealer told me I need an oil pump and would be 950$ this is very disappointing,. It only has 114 hours on the motor, and I only had it out for about two total hours sines having the full six year service done at the end of 2018 season. Model e115dslaba, serial 5373765. Dealer said they called and evinrude would not warranty the oil pump.  Has anyone seen them honor something like this in good faith?

Re: No oil alarm

I have a 2006 200HP ETEC and Starting last summer  the no oil alarm would come on and shift it in to safe mode and I would have to limp home but every time I could shut the motor off and then restart and it would run for another 15-20 minutes then the alarm would come back on and shut it down. I took it in to the dealer in February and they ran test or whatever and couldnt really find any thing. They couldnt really tell anything but decided that it must be the oil pump so they replaced it and the next time I took it out the same thing happened,so I took it back in and then they decided it was the EMM so it was replaced it and I went back to the lake and  made it about 30 seconds into getting on plane and the alarm went off and I had to limp back to the boat ramp. So I am almost $3000.00 in to this and i am on closer to have this issue fixed.

Re: No oil alarm

That is not very reassuring. They said hey tested both sides of the pump and they were showing open circuit, so it has to be the pump. Fingers crossed.

What is your model and serial number? There were some defective pumps that were called back some years ago.
