    MFD rebuild?

    My mfd went out last summer in my slx instead of getting a adapter to turn my 12 into a 8 point ($100) and finding a 8 point one ($200-$350) to put in it. I saw this a few weeks ago I was wondering if anyone has ever had him rebuild one for you? If so what was your experience and how much did it run you?

    Did you check your fuse?

    What exactly is wrong with it?

    If the LCD digits are faded, there are instructions for repairing it.

    Multi-Function Display (MFD)

    I believe we checked all our fuses. I'm not sure whatís wrong. Itís not faded itís just not working at all. We stuck a tester on the wires coming to the mfd and they read 12v so it has power. I'm not sure what happened to it worked at my house and by the time I got to the lake it went out.

    Try plugging and unplugging the connector into the back of the MFD.

    Sometimes you need to slam it hard into the back to get a solid connection.

    Make sure the fuse is fine though. It's such a small amperage fuse, you may not even see the break. Test it if you can.

    Sometimes the pins in the MFD, or the mating wire harness connector, get corrosion or just gunk on/in them.

    Spray some electrical contact cleaner on the pins and into the connector contact holes. Use a cleaner that does not leave a residue.

    If you can replace the 1/4 Amp fuse with a new one, I would do so, even if the fuse seems good. Do not use a higher Amp rated fuse.

    Also check that the Black wire from the MFD connector really measures zero ohms (less than 1 ohm) back to the engine block. The MFD needs good power and ground connections.
