Connected up the OB today....still plenty to do, but have a nuisance problem with the smartcraft which I can't find an answer for...can anyone help?
The OB has only previously run with the tacho (no speedo attached).
Speedo has now been attached.
Previously the OB ran as one of a pair (not entirely sure this is relevent to the query...but just in case)
The smart craft seem to work fine...except once running the checks the TACHO shows "Fault Oil Level" and "Fault Fuel Level"
We don't /won't be connecting a fuel gauge (using existing one for now).
The Oil reservoir (remote) connections have been cleaned etc and (although not definately) seem okay. We have extended the wiring to reach the new location, but am confident it is okay (unless the resistance in the wire is causing the issue...possible but not my first suspicion).
Have looked at the Smartcraft handbook and it says that "Fault Oil level" and "Fault Fuel level" should show as faults on the SPEEDO and not the TACHO as is the case.
Could this be because the TACHO is still 'looking' for fuel and oil level as a throw back to it's previous installation where there was no SPEEDO?
We have done resets on both gauges...but no change.
Can anyone advise how to rectify this? (is there a complete wipe clean /reset we could do?)
Further, as we won't be using the fuel level function (regardless of which gauge it shows on) can this be wiped or will it always show as a fault as it's looking for the fuel level?
Am concious this is a long and convoluted question, but it's driving me bananas!
