Engine Oil Pressure and Overheat Warning System

Tiller Handle Type

If the engine oil pressure drops, the warning system could be activated and the green oil pressure indicator light will turn OFF.
If the engine overheats, the warning system could be activated and the engine speed will decrease gradually.

Remote Control Type

If the engine oil pressure drops, the warning system could be activated and the green oil pressure indicator light will turn OFF and a continuous buzzer will sound.

If the engine overheats, the warning system could be activated, the engine speed will decrease gradually, the red overheat indicator light will turn ON and a continuous buzzer will sound.

When the Engine OverheatOverheat Warning System

The engine speed can not be increased with a larger throttle opening until the malfunction is corrected. When the malfunction is corrected the engine speed will increase gradually.

OPERATION  MOTOR PROTECTION SYSTEM

When the oil pressure warning systems is activated:

1.  Stop the engine immediately.

2. If the oil is up to the recommended level, restart the engine. If the oil pressure warning system stops after 30 seconds, the system is normal.

3.  If the oil pressure warning system stays activated after 30 seconds, return to the closest boat landing and contact your closest authorized Outboard Motor dealers.Cooling System Indicator

 

When the Overheat Warning System is activated:

1. Return the gearshift lever or control lever to the N (neutral) position immediately. Check to see if water is flowing out of the cooling system indicator.

2. If water is flowing out of the cooling system indicator, continue idling for 30 seconds. If the overheat warning system stops after 30 seconds the system is normal.

3.  If the overheat warning system stays activated, stop the engine. tilt up the motor and check the water intakes for obstructions. If there are no obstructions at the water intakes, return to the closest boat landing and contact your closest authorized Honda Marine or Honda Outboard Motor dealers.

Over-Rev Limiter

This outboard motor is equipped with an engine over-rev limiter which activates when the engine speed increases excessively. The over-rev limiter can be activated while cruising, or when ventilation occurs during a sharp turn.

When the over-rev limiter is activated:

1.  Reduce the throttle opening immediately and check the motor angle.

2.  If the motor angle is correct but the over-rev limiter stays activated, stop the engine and check the condition of the outboard motor and check the propeller for damage. Correct or service as necessary.

Anode

The anode is a sacrificial material which helps to protect the outboard motor from corrosion.Anode

NOTICE:
Painting or coating the anode will lead to rust and corrosion damage to the outboard motor.

There is a small sacrificial anode in the water passages of the engine block.
