Default Yahama F150 alarm sounding

I recently purchased a Ranger 1860 Angler with a Yahama F150 and on my second trip out an alarm began sounding. This is what I have been able to figure out: The alarm is an intermittent beep, will beep with motor running in neutral or just by turning the key on (motor not running). If I shift into gear than it will quit. I have done some googling and found all kinds of partial suggestions but nothing concrete. BTW, I changed the engine oil before the first trip out and rechecked the level and it looks good. Thoughts on what it might be?

Does it have a depth alarm that may be faulty?

If I am understanding your question correctly, the alarm will sound with boat parked in garage and depth finders off.

Possible water in the fuel?
This thread is old, but may still be relevant.

Might be water in the small filter on the front of the motor.

Take the rig to a good Yamaha mechanic and have the problem resolved.
No point in guessing and this is your $$$$$$$$$$$ engine.

Alarms mean that you should not be running the engine in its current condition So don't run the engine until you get the issue resolved by someone who knows and can resolved the issue.

Be safe

x3 take it to a pro. it might just be something simple now but could cost you thousands in the future. just another opinion.

Yep, they should be able to plug it in and know the problem quick.
My guess, and nothing more than, but might be the fuel sensor as someone mentioned earlier due to water possibly in fuel filter.

Let the pros do the work on it for sure.
