Gauges Intermittent

I have a Suzi DF50, and I am having intermittent problems with the trim and rev gauge, both normally don’t work, unless the boat takes a bang and they then both start to work for a short period of time?

I have looked at all the cables in the console and they all seem to be ok and tightly connected, and the warning lights still come on when you turn the key.

Any Idea's?

Your on the right track with wiring. Check first the plug on the loom. Engine end and then in the controller. Run the engine up and gentle twist the two halves of the plug

Thanks for your reply, as i did not install the cables, and the fault has been here since i got the boat - not sure on the cables.

had a quick look last night, and under the cover there is a black tube style connector - on the s'board side under the ecu cover - is this the one?

is there any way to test without running up the engine?

It's the fattest cable coming from the the front. You could pull the plug apart to see if there's any muck in it but you're not going to know until you start it up. One point as I'm assuming you're new to this. Don't separate that plug with the engine running

Cheers Biffer, Will give it a go this evening - not going to be able to run it up and test until Sunday - but will check everything tonight, and also once i have checked it will see if the trim/tilt works.

I hope its something simple!
