computron wiring

Recommended Posts

mailbudad

does any body have a piture of the under dash wiring. I have a yellow wire not plugged in and as usual I am one with a computron not functioning properly. I would like to see if someone have a picture of the wiring harness plug in. I am also interested in a wiring schematic which is not in the manual.

I can't find my wiring diagram to tell you what that wire is, but on mine (93), the yellow wire plugs into the first pin hole, on the top row, left hand side.

I'll keep looking and post back if I find it.

Do you know what this wire if for? Is it voltage supply, ground or depth finder?

Can anybody help me out I am not sure if it will damage the computron by plugging it it. I measured the voltage and found it is -12 volts. Does anyone know what the yellow wire is for?

I plugged it in an found out it is the engine blower. It now works, the rest of my computron is still in the can. I would really like to know how many hours are on the boat. Any thoughts?

How about 350 hours Dontknow.gifDontknow.gif

Seriously, if your having problems with the Computron I would not put allot of faith in any hour number you get. A few years ago I was reconnecting my battery and a power spike doubled the number of hours on the meter. :Doh:

The meter works fine now, it just added 300 hours to the total. When I talked to Malibu about this it was not an uncommon problem.

What problems are you having with computron? I know about the hour meter, but is the display working? Are the values wrong? What have you tried to fix it?

Late to the party here but unplugged the daughter board and cleaned the contacts on ours and it works fine now, also ours had it's own power source from the battery, but that may have been a modification. A lot of work was done to that computron during the warranty period. Ours did not work at all before, now everything works except for depth. Which sucks

If anybody has a spare Computron they want to sell, I would be interested. My boat is set up for one, just does not have it in the dash. Steering wheel also does not have the buttons, but that is not a big deal.

AMEN to that. We are going to rebuild our dash this winter, and I don't know if the computron will stay or not.
