      I suspect it to be the oil sending unit or switch since the gauge stays pegged at over 80 psi.

      You'll find that an automotive equivalent of "1999 Chevy Suburban 350" will work just fine as a replacement.? Having said that, the oil pressure sending unit has nothing to do with any alarm.? The ECM pressure switch will trigger the beeper, and should start beeping immediately on key up, but turn off after engine start after sensing oil pressure.

      BEEP CODES — the 4 maintenance items that can trigger the beeper are:

      • ?High engine water temperature (>203*)
      • ?Low oil pressure (<6 PSI)
      • ?High transmission temperature (>140?*)
      • ?A diagnostics trouble code

      Hey guys new to this forum and Malibu boats.?
      I have just purchased my first 08 Malibu Response Lxi. I have been out four times now on the water and have noticed that in the rear storage compartment on the right and left side that the carpet is wet and has not dried out in 4 days? I have not had people soaked on board and it has not been raining. The carpet is only wet at both sides and is about a 7” x 7” area of the carpet?that is soaked?? Anybody have any clue what could be leaking?? Or is this normal (which I wouldn’t think so) or is something leaking back there?

      So... my 2019 lsv sold this week. My dealer has a 2020 that I ordered last fall. Would you take this boat now, or try to hold out for a 2021 23 lsv, now that we know the new changes?? My hip was replaced 2 weeks ago, so no water sports till September.?

      I personally really like the rear walkthrough, so I'd be trying to get into the 2021. New gel design doesn't hurt either.

      Talk to your dealer and see what they can do, since you're injured anyway. Right now they're probably more worried about running out of boats to sell?in a few weeks, so this may actually help them keep up with the current demand. They could sell a $100K+ boat, at a nice profit, to a family new to boating, and still keep you on the books for this fall.??

We just got a 2010 VTX and I'm wondering if I can use this boom I have if I get the appropriate boom clamp for our VTX?? Or will I need to get a whole new boom?? Except for the boom clamp our old boom looks like it is the same?as?what?Barefoot Int'l? now recommends for V-drive boats.? Thanks!

      Hello -- I know it was an older post, but I saw that you wired-in a rocker switch under your throttle and near your kill switch in order to separately?power up your stereo system. ?I have a 2013 VLX and want to do the same. ?Looks like locating the correct white/blue wire could be a bit of a challenge unless you have any suggestions on locating the right one? ?Also, did you tap into a constant powered wire near the fuse panel and do you recall which one? ?Thanks much.

      I have a '93 Echelon (I know she's an old girl but still loves to go) and was wondering if anyone knows if there's a full shop manual available for them (with full wiring diagrams etc). ?I do a lot of the maintenance on them myself but based on the incompetent shops that I have taken it to over the years, would like to do everything myself. ?Thanks in advance!

      Hey Windawg, I know this is in reference to a post from 2012 but I have to ask. How did you get your Malibu illusion XS tower?replace for labor cost only? I have a 2008 and the tower is cracked. Exploring having it welded but if I can get Malibu to replace it i would rather go that route. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
