    P1520 Oil Code - 07 RXP Stage 3

    Was out riding my Stage 3 RXP today and got a Oil warning. Kept riding as I knew the oil levels were good and got it one more time. On the way back to the ramp i got a couple P1520 codes and put it into limp mode with the oil light flashing on bottom left of cluster. I've scanned the forums and see it could be the Oil Pressure Switch or a couple other things, but was wondering if anyone had some input to this. I will list all the parts below and see if any of the parts could be the reason for the code. Oil is a bit above the second bend on the dip stick.

    2007 Seadoo rxp 215 Stage 3+.
    This ski was born a true Stage 3 Riva racing boat. Never touched water stock. $25,000 back in 2007.
    Has a 2008 engine with 38 hours
    New battery
    New Carbon ring and coupler (20 minutes on it)

    List of mods:
    -Riva ecu with 9200 RPM limit
    -50lb injectors
    -Seadoo “628” cam
    -New external inter cooler
    -X-Supercharger
    -08+ oiling system for supercharger
    -Riva cold air intake
    -Riva racing adjustable sponsons
    -Riva racing Pro series OPAS block offs
    -Riva racing intake grate
    -Riva racing stainless impeller wear ring
    -Riva racing/Skat-trak 15/19 swirl impeller
    -Riva racing interchangeable Venturi nozzle
    -Riva racing 2 degree wedge w/adjustable vts rod
    -Custom gutted and shortened waterbox

    I've done so much searching and reading and the two most common problems seem to be Oil Pressure Regulator and Oil Pressure Switch. When the engine is warm the oil is above the 2nd notch on the dipstick, could this be too much oil and causing it to throw the OIL and P1520 code? Really need some help here guys

    the oil senders are know to fail. sometimes you need to change the back and the front. start with the back one. real pain to get to. be careful with the sender wire, no doubt the plastic catch will be brittle

    I see people saying to change switches etc. but how do I find the actual problem without needlessly replacing parts.

    I would start with both sensors first, those are not expensive.

    You can put physical oil pressure gauge on to see if the pressure is really low

    Thatís the only way

    Needless parts replacement isnít in my plans either, but this ainít my first rodeo on that particular problem

    There is a plug in the head you remove to attach an oil pressure gauge refer to your service manual for pressure specs

    Too bad Brp didnít have an option on console to display the actual pressure

    Maybe nextgo round.....

    UPDATE
    Pulled the Oil Filter and this is what I found. Iíll get a replacement tomorrow, but I am pretty sure this is the issue.

    pics not showing, but I'm guessing the filter has collapsed

    typically that's some water or oil in the coolant

    that can trigger a low oil pressure warning

    not the greatest news. dissect the filter and check for metal particles. you could have damaged the mains

    I replaced the filter and ran it for an hour today and everything seems to be running fine. The filter sat all winter and I didnt change it before I rode.

    Note when you see oil warning stop engine and get towed. Oil level has nothing to do with oil pressure. Yes could be a sensor and harmless or a mechanical problem and cook the engine.
