2011 vlx speedometer and lake temp not reading

Recommended Posts


I recently purchased a 2011 vlx and the speedometer isn't working on both the analog gage and the maliview screen.  The lake temp also indicates 32 degrees F.  The paddle wheel unit includes a temp sensor.  I measured for 12 volts to the paddle wheel and it isn't there.  Any ideas if there is a fuse that feeds it and where it might be located?  The sensor is brand new!  TIA

The water temperature data is usually supplied by the depth transducer and will only use analog temperature data through a blue/white or blue/black wire from the paddlewheel sensor to the dash Viper connector if there is no depth transducer.  Verify that the ground connection for the paddlewheel connector is good.  Speed and depth sensors are connected to the engine harness and the data is sent from the sensors to the engine ECM to the dash Viper controller through the Controller Area Network.
