Yamaha engine tilt sensor
The tilt sensor on my Yamaha 150 HPDI quit working. I had taken it to the shop to fix a problem with the oil level sensor and part of the fix was to replace the instrument cable from the engine to the console. The next time I took the boat out I noticed that the tilt sensor (on the same instrument as the oil level indicator) didn't register.
I talked to the shop about it they suggested that I test the tilt sensor at the engine with an ohm meter. It shows variable resistance as the engine tilts. Since the problem showed up when a new cable was installed I also tested resistance where the cable plugs into the gauge. It also shows variable resistance as the engine tilts. I don't know what the resistance range should be, only that it varies with the tilt of the engine.
The gauge shows one bar on the tilt indicator with the engine up and down.
Anyone have any tips on what to do next? I don't want to take it back to the shop that had it last time. They charged me an arm and a leg and the quality of the work was poor.
Have boat, will travel.
