  1. This may or may not be an issue; however, recently my 2004 215 SSi with 5.0 Merc and Alpha 1 Gen 2, has been intermittently sounding it's warning alarm. I have no visible issues with the motor (fluid levels, leaks, etc..), and I have no heat issues or pressure issues via my gauges. There is no consistency to when the warning alarm will sound, and it may just beep once or several beeps then stop. This only occurs while we are under way, and never occurs during idle. I should also mention that the risers are not hot (i can touch them), so I assume there is no cooling issue. Maintenance that has been performed this year: Oil change (before winter storage) Lower unit drive lube change Complete bellows replacement Shift cable replacement Spark plug and rotor replacement The only thing that I have noticed recently was that my battery does not appear to be as strong as what it was last year. I am not sure of the age of this battery so I have considered replacement because during my last launch the motor struggled a bit to start. However, once it started, drove the boat for a bit, it would fire right up afterwards. Does anyone have some suggestions, or is there a way for me to hook up the motor to a diagnostic unit like a car? Thank you. Jake
