    1998 ZXI1100 Gauges not working

    This is the second one of these that I have had and the Gauges did not work on either. What is strange is if you push the trim up the Gauges will work while it is pressed. This is strange. Has anyone else seen this. Is there a simple fix? The service manual just shows the 2 wires from the switch going into the trim control unit.

    Any Ideas? John

    I really don't know, but I would suspect that you have a bad ground connection somewhere. Sort of like when you have a bad ground on trailer lights and the current flows backward from the brake light circuit through the running light circuit.

    Problem solved. I did not have the small ground wire connected to the Battery. It was hiding and I did not see it.
