    DESS POST replacement

    I was wondering if this is a fairly easy task & for those who have performed the replacement, did you use solder for the wire connections or standard electrical crimp connector & heat shrink tube.??
    Thanks

    It's pretty simple, it's part of the start/stop switch and the buzzer speaker harness. You can disconnect it at the harness so your not cutting anything.

    I literally just did this on my 03 GTX last week. Ski got flipped and the DESS post started going whacky... it really is an easy fix. Find the service manual for your ski, it'll tell you how to take the handlebar assembly off. I didn't crack the whole thing open, just enough to get to the wiring and post.

    For my fix, I soldered the wires together and then used heat-shrink tubing on each individual wire, but I wanted to be sure they were protected. Probably a bit overkill..

    Whole fix took me maybe 30 minutes.
