Yamaha Digital Gauges

Hi, I have recently bought a Yamaha F115 and have been playing over the weekend with the gauages etc and connot find the lights on them to illuminate the gauages for night trips....Do they have illumination, have I been looking for something that does not exist!! Also I have seen that the trim part of the gauge is stuck on 2 bars and does not move, anyone know what to replace to fix this or could it be a number of things....

Thanks...

Didn't mean to be blunt. Don't know if this will work but worth a try. I'm sure there will be some Yam owners along shortly to give you the definite answer!

Can't help with the lights and only half an answer for the trim, but are you coming along to the Church tomorrow night ?

If the Yam trim is anything like the older 2 strokes then the fault is almost certainly the sender unit hidden under the engine saddle. Although protected by o rings they eventually get salt water in and thats the end of the sensor. Don't ask for a replacement because 10 years ago they were over 100, so most folk just ignore it and trim the engine by sight or if your really good by feel of the boat.

Every second Monday in the month and all welcome. Your bound to recognise us and there is normally a propellor or two sat on the table.

Doesn't it briefly light when you turn it on and then press something to keep it on?

Have a look at the back of the gauges. If the is a light fitting trace the electrical strips to where the terminals go. If they look wired up the I guess the supply is via a switch or something, it might be that a fuse is in need of replacement or a wire has fallen off. If there are no connectors on the terminals then there is no supply and you'll have to wire these up to a supply to get them to work.

If however it appears there is no light fitting the the lighting is internal and controlled though the engine instrument controls, a read of the manual might help.

If you still are having trouble then I could come around and have a look sometime as I'm a local.

Don't know about the new networked (Command Link) digital gauges, but the older digital ones had a separate wire for lighting. I connected mine to the circuit powering the side marker lights, as if I needed the gauges, I'd be underway, and I often leave the white anchor light on while diving.

I'm unable to locate any kind of wiring diagram/schematic at the moment, but I'll keep looking.

Can you describe your gauges? Round, square; sort of a description of the connectors supplied?
