What does the warning buzzer and subsequent flashing light mean?

 

You should read your Owner's Manual before operating your Suzuki Outboard. It will explain various warnings you might encounter during operation. The monitor gauge will illuminate why the warning buzzer has sounded. If the warning buzzer is indicating a problem with oil or overheating, it will also be accompanied by a reduction in maximum RPM. The buzzer will sound when the engine is started. The warning system will sound and the oil light will illuminate after the first 20 hours of operation - it is time for the first oil change. This process will repeat after another 80 hours of operation and then again after every 100 hours of operation. Conditions like low oil and overheating can seriously damage your engine. If you are unable to determine why the buzzer has sounded, you should check with your authorized Suzuki Marine dealer before continued operation.
