no oil light stays on etec 150

brought back to dealer after 300 hr service,  they emptied the oil tank, refilled and purged the lines, light still on after system check does its thing, thier computer says or shows nothing except when it went into safe mode for a while, they want to replace the system check gauge which i already did?, is there a dedicated tech that a mechanic can call at evinrude? does the computer say the oil sensor is good ?  surely this problem has occured on another engine , common sense tells me to replace the sensor and see what it does. just paid 1000 dollars for 300 hr service , and now this bill is approaching 600 dollars. this motor has been flawless in operation till now.  your thoughts bill are very well taken....

What service code number is stored in the engine's EMM? That tells the tech (and us) where to start looking as several malfunctions can cause a NO OIL light to come on and the motor limit its rpm to 1200.

If you can post a copy of the engine report that could help us look at the engine history.

Your dealer's technician also has access to Evinrude's dealer support group for assistance with hard to find problems. Ask if they have taken advantage of it and to give you the case number for reference if they contacted the group.

Re: no oil light stays on etec 150

If you are sure that it is the NO OIL and not the LOW OIL warning, then the gauge could be faulty, a wiring anomaly, or rarely an EMM internal glitch.

A valid NO OIL warning limits the engine to 1200 rpm for its protection and the oil injection operates rapidly to possibly force any air bubbles through the system.

 

Substituting a known good gauge is a quick way to find out where the problem lies.

Re: no oil light stays on etec 150

Curious to hear the answer as my NO OIL light and alarm came on this past week after running great for the previous 64.5 hours. I ran the winterize procedure one time and seems to have cleared it. Put an additional 2 hours on the motor this past weekend and no issue. The oil reservoir is 90% full and was 95% full when the alarm sounded.

A valid "no oil" code accompanied by s.a.f.e. mode is usually caused by the oil pressure sensor getting an air bubble in it and can usually be cleared by the winterizing procedure. The oil pressure sensor should be cleaned and bled at each 3 year/300 hour service.
