Good idea to remove the alarm rather than fixing the fault
after all you could run out of oil , ruin the motor completely because of the lack of oil and have a long swim home
fix the error in the alarm / sensor and be safe

    sorry to be so direct but water safety is paramount
    temporary fixes have a bad habit of becoming permanent fixes and people who are not directly involved generally die from the temporary fix

2006 mercury outboard opti max 200 engine alarm, (4 beeps). oil was run low, do i need to prime the system or should it prime itself?


The low oil sensor is not "seeing" the oil in the tank...(mine does this when I crank it,, the low oil light stays on).. It uses plenty of oil,,I quit worrying..- -don't feel like taking the oil system apart..
Get one of these.. I have one for every outboard I ever owned..they DO come in handy...

What is the fuel mixture for a 9.9 mercury outboard motor?


With modern oils all 2 cycle engines (if it is a 2 cycle) can be safely mixed at 50:1. Most auto parts stores will carry the proper 2 cycle oil for outboard engines.

The brake master cylinder reservoir has a separate chamber and is used to supply the hydraulic clutch system. So make sure master cylinder reservoir is full.
