Default 2 beep alarm @ 2 min intervals

So my 2004 maxum 2400se with a 5.0 mpi mercruiser bravo 3. We were cruising around the harbor, all was well for 45 minutes. I start to get an alarm code with 2 beeps around 2 minute intervals. Would anyone recognize this code and if there are any links to where I could download a pdf list of all the codes, I need to be aware. Thank you.

That sounds like the drive lube resevoir.

So I have drive lube at full. Still getting the alarm. To correct my post, I'm getting a 2 beep alarm at 1 minute intervals. Not at two minute intervals as stated in my original post

try disconnecting the wire on the lube resevoir, sometime the float sticks.

You wont be able to figure out what it is by the alarm. 2 beeps every minute just means its a sensor. Intermittent continuous beeps is drive lube. Continuous horn would be other problems. The only way to actually know is to have it hooked up to a scanner. One of the most common sensor problems is the Idle air control if it is fuel injected
