About a week ago I was on the water cruising on my 03 Calabria cal air, and stopped for awhile with my wife. When we started cruising again the alarm started beeping about every minute or so. I shut the boat off and checked everything I could think of. It was running great the whole time. So I started it back up and the alarm kept beeping. I was worried so we called it a day and went in. Once I got home I checked for any blockages in the hoses without any luck. Before I give in and take it to a mechanic I wanted to know if anyone had any ideas of suggestions on what it may be. Please help!

Is the lite for the Transmission on? Maybe check the tranny fluid? It could also be something as simple as a wire short.

sounds stupid, but make sure you check your depth finder too to make sure it is not set with the alarm on or the sensor is fouled????

Check the beep sequence against your manual for a clue.

I had what sounds like the same beep on the first trip out in my Pro-V. Turned out to be a failed O2 sensor.

Jackson, I had an 04 Cal-Air with the 315hp motor and my transmission dipstick was stuck to. I had to pull it out with pliers I think.

diggs, good call on the depth finder.

I had a very similar problem. It could be the block temperature sensor or in my case the alternator regulator went bad. Basically over time it got worse and when i hit the throttle the alternator would produce over 16 volts. The computer would sound the audible alarm every minute or so. After a few trips out with the problem it go so bad that it i hit the throttle fully open it would shut down the motor. Basically the computer was shutting down the motor to protect itself and all the electronics. I took mine to Calabria's factory and they hooked up the motor to the merc diagnostic tool and figured it out.

One of my friends had this happen to his 02 Calabria. His raw water pumps impeller was old and the rubber vanes broke off restricting the water follow into the engine causing it to run hot.

You mite want to check your impeller, There about 50 bucks and it takes about 20 minutes to change and you should change them at lease every two years or 100 hours which ever comes first.

Yeah, the boat was running fine. It actually did exactly what MOX described, but only over the course of 1 trip. I don't recall exactly, but it was something like 3 beeps once a minute or something like that. If I hit a certain speed it would go in to a limp mode.

Same issue here on my '05 ProV. 1st 2 times it was a water sensor, took 2 different times (being constantly beeped at) replacing the part to work right. From what I was told, there were a bad run of sensors from Merc. Just last season, ours did the same as yours is doing. That time (and it did go into limp mode), it was the oil pressure sensor. Once that was replaced, and the computer was reset (they forgot to reset after fixing, and it did the same thing again, on the water---argh) everything worked fine.
