Default Problems with Yamaha gauges

One of my Yam. gauges decided to foul up recently. The digital gauge is not as "read-able" as the others. Sometimes, I can barely read it and it looks as if it is broadcasting the correct data (rpm, trim, etc.) and then other times, I can see an "E" on it. The only time that I see all of this is when I am not running (meaning I have to concentrate), futhermore, when I am running...there is no way to read the darn gauge.
I have checked all of the wiring and all seems intact and fine. Is this the red flag that the guage is ready for burial???

Heath,
Switch the plugs from the bad RPM guage to the good one and determine if you have a wiring or guage problem. make sure you label the wires before you begin to avoid any confusion.

If you determine its the tach thats bad(most likely) and its less than a year old, its under warranty. All Yamaha gauges installed with the original power have a year warranty.

If not then I can help you here....

there are numerous new and used tachs on ebay for sale. You should be able to find one for near $100 or less. Call Marine connection liquidators at 772-465-6460. they usually have some new Yamaha stuff at reasonable prices.

Sunday, I took the wife and her friend for a very short cruise. The weather looks nice the rest of the week so I will be out this weekend.

Are you by chance wearing a bad pair of polarized sun glasses? Sounds like a silly question, but some will make lcd displays looks weird from different angles. Just a try...

Eric,

Check you email about the 16'wiring harness and call me.

FireFly,

Yes, I thought of that, but the sunglasses were not the problem. It would be nice if that was the problem.
