97 stx 1100 low oil circuit
I just got a 97 stx 1100 that was converted to premix. Does anyone know what wires I have to put a resister on to say the oil tank is full so I dont get that annoying low oil light. Thanks

If the tank has been removed, there should still be a plug hanging in the engine compartment. Should have two pins/wires.

The tank has been removed. I can't find any loose wires. Any idea on what color they are?

I've got a '98 STX 1100 manual, the wires are black, and black/white. It's a two pin connector, probably black or green.

Thanks for the info. I looked and didnt see any loose black, black/white wires anywhere. I'll keep looking thanks again.

Remove the front storage compartment and look through there.

I removed the compartment and still couldn't find anything. I'm thinking the previous owner must have completely removed it and cut it from the main wiring harness.

The only connector close to that I found was a black/white and blue wires. Maybe thats the one I will play with it using a couple resisters.

Sorry, I wasn't thinking. Black/white and blue are the correct wires for the oil level sensor. The blue is labelled BL and I read it as black.
The book gives resistance values for the fuel sensor, but not oil. There are several floats on the oil level sensor, guess you'll have to experiment. Keep in mind that there is a long time constant for the circuit, you have to wait at least 10 seconds to see any change on the gauge.

I found a 33ohm resister laying around so I put it in and the oil gauge went all the way to full. It worked perfectly so thanks fo the help.
