Tahoe boat ('05) warning beeper

On the lake today, my '05 Tahoe's warning beeper went off each time I started it and kept it up for at least a couple minutes afterward until I was well underway and moving at a fair clip, then it would stop. In addition, when I turned on the "master power" switch, I also got a warning beep (this one at about twice the speed of the other), but it would stop immediately when I turned off that switch. I started and stopped the boat about 5 times during the day with the same results each time. I don't even know what those beepers are meant to warn me about as I don't have the manual. Can anyone tell me what those are supposed to be telling me?
thanks......Denny

The carberator is gravity fed and there is propbably gunk in it, when you give it more throttle, it needs more gas but can't get it. Then a build up of gas in the float bowl occurs and nothing works right. It has happened to me and its aggravating, do a complete rebuild on the carb or just replace it and you will be happier quicker.

Hope this helps, Coachtheune

SOURCE: My Freespirit also stops after a few minutes

Normally all these problems are in relation with motor itself, I mean, internal bearings, short circuit. So if your treadmill stops is bacause the circuit board detetecs an over current fron motor.

I hope help you

Yes. Replace the speed sensor. In the unlikely event that the problem still is not solved replace the circuit board. J.

Hi,

All powered treadmills have a breaker. The purpose of the breaker is to prevent a power surge that might damage the treadmill motor. Check the circuit breaker on the frame near the power cord. If the reset/off circuit breaker has tripped, wait 5 minutes and then reset the breaker by pressing the switch in. That should fix the problem.

SOURCE: new battery just put boat

You will need to do 3 tests:
1 - you must find out if you have a short in the wiring: disconnect the + cable from the battery and put an ampermeter in there to close the circuit; if a current is detected it means that you have a short and it will drain the battery. To locate the short start disconnecting wires and look at the meter - when you will disconnect the wire that goes to the failed wire or part the current will stop flowing; find the faulty part and fix or replace it.
2 - you must find out if the alternator is charging the battery correctly: start the motor, wait for half an hour then measure the voltage on the battery. If it's below 14.1 volts then the alternator is failing and it will have to be replaced.
3 - you must find out if the battery is in good working order: after the second test has finished shut down the engine and disconnect the battery; wait one hour and measure it -if the voltage on it has dropped to below 11.8 volts then the battery has aged and it's no longer holding the charge so replace it.

I have a fishfinder Hummibird 565, I use it on a big fishing boat which is impossible to fix the sensor on the bottom of the boat, so I tried to hang it on the boat with a float, but it cannot work well,...


you can get a specialist to come and fix/reapply the sensor to the boat and possibly fix it if it is broken var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_4fdf0f4e4d1b403489dd188ff9311fa0(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } FCTB_Init_4fdf0f4e4d1b403489dd188ff9311fa0(document['FCTB_Init_3475a15565eb478ea69972d3c6d88377']); delete document['FCTB_Init_3475a15565eb478ea69972d3c6d88377'] var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_a70c5362962d40be976e65b2158646e3(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } FCTB_Init_a70c5362962d40be976e65b2158646e3(document['FCTB_Init_379c2b6472d1424f847e6d43703fa3ad']); delete document['FCTB_Init_379c2b6472d1424f847e6d43703fa3ad']

2005 Mercury 50hp 2-stroke outboard motor very sluggish when accelerating, stalled twice when trying to exceed 50% throttle capacity. Last time I used my boat was about two months ago, so I don't think bad...

94 750 begins running half thottle after 30 min


Fuel system has to hold 3 to 7 psi for ten minutes. fix any leaks. Check to make sure that your water temp sender is working right and or that the water system is not clogged.
If it thinkd that it is over heating the rev limiter will drop to a lower rpm. hope that helps

Motor was running great, but it died slowly and never start again


check to see if you have a spark -then check if you are still getting fuel-and how old is the fuel-because it is recommended ,an im assuming its a 2 stroke motor,that the fuel should be replace with a fresh 2 stroke mixture every couple of months as the mixture jellyfies and sludges up the carb etc-try those first

Yamaha ar 230 engine middle lightcome on in on both tach and shut


With the newer yamaha jet boats your route of easiest resistance is gonna be to take the boat to a Yam dealer so they can put a diagnostic machine on it. Alot of sensor problems can be solved much easier and cheaper after running the diagnostic and pinpointing exactly what the issue is. The lights on the dash are for high temp and low oil. If you checked the water temp and it seemed ok, check your oil levels.

the inside of the prop has a rubber between the prop itself and the inside splines to act as a shock absorber,say if you were to hit a rock. that rubber had spun out and the splines are turning inside the prop. the prop is screwed. seen it 100 times before.
