2004 GTX 4-Tec SC, 160hr,Low oil / Sensor warning/Red flashing triangle
Help me out... I have a 2004 GTX 4 Tec Sc with 160 hr, when I start my ski sometime the low oil indicator alarms and the ski goes into safe mode. I pull the key and reattach and slowly warm it up so to speak ... no issue. I get a sensor warning non-audible on the electronic display. Also the red triangle on the bottom left hand side of the display is flashing. I live in Florida so down time is never but Ithink I am going to shut it down until I figure this problem out.
83 degrees today what to do what to do... I guess I am on the kayak!!
Oh yeah, gotta pull that SC before it gernades!!!!

if its a 185 hp, think it has a diff sc clutch design(no washers to go boom).....i think.

NOTE: Get Jerry to do the rebuild.

Its the 185 and I agree with the rebuild. I will change out those oils pressure sensors. I guess its time to shut it down and repair before the full riding season. Currently I am fishing off it. Thanks guys for the input!!!

and as for the OPS, they are a switched circuit, wereby the OPS is the switch to earth the circuit. very simple design. i have replaced 3 of the buggers. have ended up using a toyota OPS and changing the plug. no more issues. Although, i would certainly recommend a physical oil pressure check using a gauge so you can be 100% sure you dont have low oil pressure.

Is there a port that I can use to check the pressure? I have the manual on download I will do a little light /heavy reading tonight

You just put the gauge in we're the ops is (with an extension). In the later 4tec engines there is a hole at the back of the head u can use, unsure on your model though.

So what about the forum users who, on various threads about this exact subject, have changed their sensors and not cured the problem? And then there are those who have simply added more oil... Do we have multiple causes of the same warning light going on simultaneously?
