    01 Virage TXi Elc box

    I picked up my 5th Virage and 4th TXi. The person said it has a bad fuel pump..... they thought. The MFD did not work and the plug to the gas tank had been unpluged. I pluged the gas tank cable back in and I hooked the MFD to a good TXi and it reset 79.4 hr. I has spark and compression 135 135 130 psi. so it is a good motor.

    I then checked the elc box fuse and it came right out. The base for the fuse was rustted right off. My question could that have made it not start?

    I have not checked the fuel pump yet but that wil be next to make sure it has the right PSI.

    That's the 1/4 amp fuse for the MFI. You can use an inline fuse holder in the box connected to the red/purple terminal to fix that.

    Not sure what you are saying is ther a 2nd fuse holder in there that size that I could use? I know there is a smaller fuse is that what you are talking about feeding off of? Are you saying just buy one put it in the Elc box and jump it to the red/purple terminal? Any pics I can be a bit slow sometimes...THX

    The other fuse in the box is most likely for the bilge pump. Go to Radio Shack and spend 3 bucks on an inline fuse holder. Connect it to the red/purple wire that powers the MFI, and connect the whole thing directly to a red/purple terminal. All you are doing is replacing the broken fuse holder on the board with the inline one. Its a cheaper and easier fix than replacing the whole board.

    Ok I got it.... I thought that was what you were saying. I will look and make sure no other damage has been done to the board. Does that fuse always rust off first? I had a 2nd ski with a real bad bord and the fuse was just gone. They had no fuse and just hooked it up with out one.
