2000 Response LX Monsoon Engine Hours

Nautique User

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I just purchased my first Malibu (2000 Response LX) from a family that lived on our lake. It is in great shape, as they never used it much. I believe that the first owner added Perfect Pass and when it was added, they removed the RPM gauge and installed Perfect Pass. For this reason, there is no hour meter. Is there an easy way for me to find out how many hours are on the boat? Since there is an open spot on the dash to add a small gauge, I think I will add an hour meter, but would like to find out how many are on it at this point. I know someone who works at a local auto repair shop that might be able to connect to it, but I wasn't sure if that can be done with a auto type meter, or what information (hours) would be available.

Thanks for your assistance!

Should be able to read the hours off the ecm as well as what speeds the engine was run at, time at each rpm, etc. I know the dealer can do it but not sure about your local mechanic.

Perfect pass also keeps the hours, but only hours since it was installed. Once you get the reading off the engine you can just compare that to perfect pass to get future readings.

You do not mention if the engine is fuel injected. If so, the ECM has a record of the time stored, but it is only accessable with Diacom (marine) software. If not, then no, hours are not available. Talking hours, I would be more concerned about lack of use, than use.

I think the easiest option is to ask your seller/neighbor if they still have the rpm gauge, if so, remove dash, unplug speedo, plug in tach, and start it up. in that era the gauges all used the same harnesses and have the same plugs.
