    these two wires are the low oil signal wites for the vro tank, one is a ground the other is a signal to the alarm. when the alarm wire is grounded alarm gos off,
    check for water at bottom of vro tank this can cause the signal to ground or check for tan wire to be grounded if all is good replace pick-up tube and purge oil line
