I am looking to change out my oil pressure sensor and water temp sensor. I noticed last year the last time out on the boat that they were bouncing around and the alarm started to go off. Does anyone know if the sensors can be bought at like a napa or parts store? If they can be does anyone know the part numbers for each of these two. Thanks in advance.

I did buy an oil pressure sending unit for my 04 VLX at NAPA. At the time they had two different ones with different ohm settings, which affects where the gauge reads. I guessed wrong (50/50 shot) and my gauge read a little high after the install, but it solved the intermittent alarm issue.

First off, erratic gauge readings are usually caused by the plug that connects the dash area wiring to the engine. It is called the cannon plug and is located on the engine itself. Look for a harness coming up from the bilge and going to the engine. Second, there are two of each senders on the engine and they are different because one goes to the computer the other to dash gauges.

All the senders are standard automotive type senders modified slightly for marine environment connections. Use a 1999 Chevy 350 truck engine as your reference.

On mine the first stop was the cannon plug and that did not resolve the issue, so I changed the sending unit and it fixed the problem.
