Warning Buzzer Problems was created by Craig
I have a 2006 245 with a 5 ltr. Alpha 1 Gen 2 with 70 hrs. closed cooling.


Last season while cruising I had to stop to adjust my tender. When I restarted the motor my buzzer sounded. I checked my guages, before I shut the engine down, and all was well. I checked the leg oil, it was good. Now with a few exceptions the buzzer has sounded every trip out. It only goes off for a few seconds, and usually after either restarting or after coming off plane idling for a bit then accelerating to come on plane it will sound. The first time it happened I may have had kelp around my leg. So I'm thinking of doing the impeller this year before splash. The boat is running perfect otherwise!!

Any suggestions of other things I might look at??

Thermostat?

Had that same issue with my first boat! Very annoying! But in my case it disappeared when I went from idle to cruise. Was with a Force 120 hp outboard. They put in a new thermostat and problem was solved.

That's exactly when it does it, from idle to cruise. If it is the thermostat would it not just overheat or are you saying it might be sticking?

It would sound like a sticking thermostat to me. I think changing the impeller is a good idea too.

I would also tend to think a sticking t-stat would do it, change it out and do the impeller as well. As you also stated there may have been kelp at your pickup blocking/restricting the flow.

Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but always enough to do it right the second time.

If you haven't changed your impeller, you are likely overdo.
If an impeller loses a blade or two it will still pump but it takes more rpms to move enough water.
It has to overcome the blades in the system also.
I would start there. You will know if the impeller is bad when you look at it.
It could be the T'stat also.
A cheap heat temp gun is a good tool to carry. You can see problems with manifolds or risers with one also.
Get a base reading and you may be able to see problems long before it gets serious. It would help if it is a defective sender also.

Just a couple. Lots of different ones available.
Another use if you trailer your boat is a quick scan of tires and bearings when you stop can spot trouble also.
