    Just installed new steering cable, now trim / dash gauges not working 95 sl 750

    Hi I just installed a new steering cable on my 1995 SL 750, got it all put back together for a test run and noticed that the dash gauges / trim are now not working. Any ideas where to start looking? I assume maybe a fuse is blown or a wire is got disconnected while routing the steering cable.

    Any ideas what to look for which fuse or connectors to check?

    Pop open the electrical box. There are two fuses - one for the MFD and one for the bilge pump. Check those...I'm betting it's popped. You can also check voltage on the power wires feeding the MFD and trim. (Orange & red/purple, I believe.)

    the 95 SL 750 didn't have a bilge stock, the 2 things currently out are the trim and the mfd, I installed an aftermarket bilge but that isn't affected. Ill open up the box and look.

    Thanks!

    Then you should only have 1 fuse in the box. I believe it's a 1/4 amp agc. I've had luck finding them at Radio Shack. Although now that I think of it, that fuse shouldn't affect the trim circuit.

    Have you check the breaker by any chance?

    the switch on the top of the box? Ya I checked that. The ski runs perfectly just doesnt have trim or mfd display. These all worked just before I tore into it to install the steering cable.

    When you installed the steering cable did you disconnect the wires going to the mfd? Ive found that if you don't disconnect the neg battery cable & unplug & plug the mfd back in it will usually blow that 1/4 amp fuse in the electrical box.

    I didn't intentionally disconnect the mfd, I did disconnect the battery a few times and had to run the cable a few times, I had recieved the wrong cable for my ski at first. I will check the fuse then the connector, then i will trace the wires I guess. Is there anything the trim and mfd share that would make them both go out together?

    Orange wire from the voltage regulator.

    Should power up both items when the engine starts to turn over or is running.

    Thanks for all the help, I opened the fuse box and found that the fuse was actually good but on of the metal clips that holds the fuse had come loose off the board. I have fixed this and now its good!
