I posted this on the Sangernation.com website, but I haven't had any responses so I thought I would turn to Wakeowrld for some help.
I have a 2001 SangAir, and the last two times that I have been on the water my dash guages have worked intermittently.
At start up the guages buzz and flicker like they are going to work, but then they do not. This applies to the tach, speedometer, engine temp, oil pressure, volts, and gas guage.
The dash board toggle switches for all of the accessories work fine as well as the stereo. The ballast pump switches are working fine as well.
I have checked for any loose connections beneath the dash, but I canít seem to locate any.
Being that most of these guages are receiving information from the engine is there somewhere on the engine that I should be looking for a bad electrical connection. I have the Mercruiser 350 MPI engine.
The first day on the water this year the guages started off not working for about the first four hours of the day, then they worked for the last hour of the day. The second day on the water, they worked for about a half hour, then they did not work the balance of the day.
The boat seems to be running fine.
Any suggestions of where to begin looking for a short or any other possible causes would be greatly appreciated.
