RPM Gauge not working

Recommended Posts

Chilliezax

Put the boat boat in the water today and the RPM gauge is not working and it is causing the alarm to beep. The digital one works just fine. It didn't start until I got up to about 3000RPM's. Once it started it didn't stop until I turned the boat off. Started it again, not on, until 3000RPM's. Any ideas? Thanks.

did the alarm beep when yours stopped working? also not sure if it is related, but the battery has a low charge. not sure if its important just throwing it out.

IIRC, some have talked about a switch on the back that is numbered 4,6,8. Twist that back an forth a few times and reset to 8. May not be the problem, but worth a shot.

Cannon plug? Does that motor have one? I would guess that the tach signal passes through that plug if you have one. It would be a very low voltage signal (lower than 12 volts), and these signal been having problems going though that plug with the silicon grease and loose connections in that plug.
