"Wedge Moving Up" Alarm

Recommended Posts

ManitouMalibu

I have an '06 VLX with the Monsoon 340 engine, single battery, and a manual wedge. I am experiencing an alarm frequently. The message is "Wedge is Moving Up". This doesn't make sense to me since the wedge is manual. I suspect that this alarm has something to do with system voltage because it seems that the alarm is more frequent with more electrical accessories operating: Stereo loud, ballast pumps on, etc. Anyone got ideas?

You have a ground loose in your boat to dash harness. In some of the first 06 boats the alarm was going off all the time when you accellerated and dealers had to add a ground to one spot in the harness to stop the issue.

It's a easy thing for a dealer to do, if that's not the problem there is a problem with the actual MMDC computer that runs the dash. Both should be covered under warranty from your Malibu dealer.

Hope this helps!

Yes it helps, thanks!

The rest of my dash works fine, so I'm hopeful that the problem is the loose ground rather than a faulty MMDC.

If it's easy for a dealer to add a ground to one spot in the harness, is it easy enough for me to do myself? I'd rather not take it to a dealer for something simple - warranty or not. Can you provide any specifics?

Thanks again.
