    900 stx oil light is on

    I'm working on my dads 99 STX 900, he bought it 2 years ago and this is the first time were getting it in the water (don't ask, i have no idea why). He's still new to jetski's and asked me to take it for the first time to see how it ran.

    Ran great!

    One problem: after running for about 20-30 min the oil light started coming on and off, on and off, then steady on. When I got back to his dock, I checked plenty of oil in there almost full actually. So he called the people that winterized for him 2 years ago and they told him its probally the sending unit has gone bad. Only problem is they promised to come out in 3 days and look at it. Well 4 weeks later its still sitting on the dock, so now I'm searching the forums to get it fixed.

    I know theres away to test the sending unit by jumping something somewhere.... but thats all i know, can someone give me a step by step or a link to the shop manual for this

    Thank you so much.

    This site is great.
