    1997 GP1200 meter error code?

    Hi All,

    New here. I just picked up a 97 GP1200 for $700 with a galvanized trailer. The PO said it started when he got it last year but when he change the battery, it locked. He didn't know what that was and proceeded to go through the electrical. Unfortunately for him, he tore apart the starter switch box and lost the tabs inside the kill switch. I bought a used switch and got it to start (after replacing a bad bendix and starter relay), but the meter came up with this (see attached picture).

    I tried disconnecting the blue connector, but the warning light doesn't come on to allow me to reset anything. Also, when holding down the mode button, it doesn't go through lock or start option. At one point, it also read EEP error. Searched online and came up with nothing.

    Anyone have any ideas? I can run the ski like this, but it'd be nice if the meter worked.

    That meter might be fried. Hard to say. You may wanna see if you can pick up a good used one here or on eBay.
