Fellow Maxum owners. I come to the oracle of delphi once more. thanks in advance for your collective wisdoms here.....
I have a 2001 Maxum 2700 SCR. I have had two separate incidents involving beeping and want to make sure I have solved properly
1) Beep 1 Problem - Occured during driving home one day through rough chop. The boat literally stalled out from a full plane. When I went to start back up I wasn't getting the 4/5 consecutive beeps when I turned the key to the one position and the boat wouldn't even engage to start. Nothing. The Sea Tow guy that came to get me happened to be a MerCruiser expert and advised me to check a few things of which one was the connections behind the key module in the dash. After taking that out I noticed the one red wire came lose and must have disconnected over the rough chop. After attaching, I had no more problems with that.
2) Beep 2 Problem - Yesterday I had one loud continous beeping after starting. The marina mechanic told me it was either low oil or no drive oil in the resevoir. I topped both off to the reccomedned amounts and the beeping stopped and I had no other problems all day.
Can you guys confirm this sounds about right solutions based on the problems I've highlighted. I'm so thankful for honest advice as both of these could have cost me a fortune if a mechanic wanted to take me to the bank......
