Buzzer ringing constantly!!!
Switched both my 1995 sl 650 std's over to premix and spliced in a 33ohm resistor between the oil sensor wires. Now my buzzer won't shut off. Every time you push the start button it constantly is on.
This is happening on both of the ski's. Only other thing I did electrically is move the main ground mount location to the engine and off of the bottom plate.
Any ideas? Do I need wire solder in the resistors directly to the leads?
Just read the manual and it says the models with the buzzer (no mfd) have a oil sensor readings of 35ohms (full) to 240ohms (empty). Maybe since the 33ohm resisor is out of range its triggering the buzzer. I'll have to go get a 35,40,50, etc resistor and try it.

I am going from memory here, and may not be correct. My fuzzy recollection is that the oil level sensor in models with the buzzer only (no MFD) is a switch, not a resistance.
If I am correct then the oil sender wires need to either be shorted or left open circuit to indicate full oil tank.
Remove the resister and leave the wires unconnected. Buzzer now quiet? I think it will be.
If still buzzer, then short the two wires together. Buzzer now quiet?

THanks for the input K447. I'll give it a try and report back.

Thanks both of you! you guys were absolutely correct.
I just disconnected the oil sensor wires all together and no more buzzer.
