Oil alarm sound?

I changed the oil in my Yanmar 30 and the alarm signal that usually 'beeps' at shut off stopped. The oil level is correct, right between the lines. Any ideas?

My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.

This is just a guess... but is your oil pressure sending unit built into your drain plug? Maybe a wire got disconnected?

Good luck

eng.alarm connection

I used a vac pump to get the oil out. But you have me thinking that I may have disconnect a wire somewhere. Will take a good look. Thanks

Also, just an idea (I'm grasping at straws), but make sure the actual ignition switch is good - in other words, when you set the key to "RUN" that it is actually closing a circuit. I had a SAAB 900 (car) that had the ignition switch go bad, and I could start the engine, but when I released the key back to "RUN", the circuit would open and shut down the engine. Also check that the buzzer itself is working.
Best of luck...
