Default Suzuki 4-Stroke blinking oil light ??

It's a 2000 70 hp Suzuki 4-stroke with a blinking oil light on the panel - about one flash per second. No aural warning.

I can't find the problem in my manual as the aural warning does not accompany the light. I recall this is not good if the light blinks with an aural warning. The oil level is normal.

Anyone know about this? Thanks for advice........

Oil light flashing means you've hit 20 hours. Reset it by turning the key to run (not start) and pulling the deadman out 3 times.

yup, it's a service reminder that freaks out every new owner because lots of the dealers leave that out of the delivery talk. In the owner's manual there is no mention of it in the intitial "caution system" section where they first mention that light and what it means, but a few pages later in the "Oil Change Reminder" section.

No worries.

MIne blinked at 20 hrs and and the number one motor just blinked again last week which must be the 100 hour mark. Funny thing is the number motor has not blinked yet and I ran another 4-5 hrs since. I can't believe the motors were that far apart in usage. Maybe only one will indicate but that doesn't sound right either.

Puzzling

Both will indicate as long as both have mutlifunction tachs.

They are identical suzuki's and at the 20 hr mark they buzzed and flashed, this time it was just the number one motor so far. I changed the oil so I think I got it covered.

thanks

Johnson four strokes do not support this maint. reminder feature.
