    Polaris slt700 1996 engine temperature sensor/whistle alarm

    I think i have finally worked out what my whistle is on my 700 SLT, does anyone know how i can test the temperature sensor or any ideas?

    the pwc runs great but after about 10 minutes the alarm goes off, i have returned to the dock turned it off and after a few minutes its fine again, seems to happen quicker if i open her up and go faster.

    is there any other ideas that u guys can help me with ?

    the alarm is under the handlebar pad and i don't know enough to find where the sensor is ?

    Sounds like you have an actual issue with the cooing system.

    When the overheat alarm sounds, can you put your hand on the engine for several without burning yourself? Check all three cylinders for equal temperatures, and the exhaust system. All should be VERY warm, but still touchable.

    The Temp sensor is attached to a Tan colored wire. The sensor will be installed into the water manifold or the exhaust manifold.
