    Unplug the MFD connector on the back of the MFD.

    It does not affect engine operation when unplugged.

    More info here;
    Multi-Function Display (MFD)

    Does the MFD work properly otherwise?

    When the MFD on my 2000 pro1200 was acting wacky it would say things like "low oil" when the oil was full and "hot" after I just started it from being cold, It would make the PWC go into limp mode(would not go over 3800 RPM). Once I replaced the MFD all problems were solved.

    Good Luck that sounds very similar too my past issue.

    By the way...Thanks Randy!! for the great working MFD.

    What do you mean by cuts out? Boggs down? Loses throttle ?

    You can also use an 8-pin MFD - there is an adapter cable available.

    do the 12 and 8 pin MFD look the same?
    What is the difference? why 4 extra pins?

    Are you sure your 2000 SLX has A 12 pin MFD, I was told that the 12 pin MFD's were in older Polaris PWC's, I have A 2000 Pro1200 and it has A 8 pin.
