Man, I haven't got a clue. Any help would be a lifesaver. Thanks- I try to post a pic. Oh, and there's a wire coming off the box thats cut. Whats it for? There's also a tan wire on the motor that goes to another tan wire , should i connect them?

What's the wire coming off the control box for.
Also I labeled all the wire connections on the motor but two wires I missed. Not even sure if they go here - see pic. More info- the wires on the wiring harness are exposed .

As for the buzzing, I know my johnson buzz's if the oil injection loses pressure(normally when idling, and if I pump the ball for the oil, it goes right away). So im guessing if you closed off the oil injection system, it would screw with the pressure and it would cause it to go off.

Thanks, the motor runs great...
But after running for a little bit the VRO alarm goes of , 1/2 sec beep- 1/2 off, beep, etc.
The oil fitting is capped off and clamped. Vro harness disconnected. What now? Disable the horn

over time I had an overheating problem. so I did just about everything. The bottomline was falty warning horn,falty tempeture switch. that caused the s.l.o.w. alarm to go off. I also had my vro pump go bad so I disconnected it and now pre-mix.
my alarm would go off and shut the motor down to 2000 rpm. I have since replaced those parts and now my motor is running fine. omc was putting out some really crappy components back then. but the new ones are working good now. my motor is 17yrs old and still running strong being ran mostly in the saltwater.

I hate to say it but omc and evinrude and Johnson went out of business for a reason, around me you can't even find parts for them. My best advice save up and get a yamaha dude. By the way green is ground. you should be able to find an omc wire color chart online that should be of use.
