Inop STX MFD
Previous owner says that he rolled the ski over and it hasn't worked since. Stupid thing is crazy expensive, used they are going for $300, new it's over $700, discontinued and I think the '97/98 is the only one I can use. Is there any hope in making mine work again (don't know how long ago it stopped working) or is it more than likely DOA?

By now I'm sure it's toast. If you get to it right away and remove the plug on the back and run a hair dryer over it, you can sometimes dry it out before corrosion kills it. Riding it with moisture in it keep the power applied and corrosion will destroy it very quickly. I'd bet all the contacts on the circuit board are gone.
If you get another one, seal that rubber plug with 3M 5200 before you ride it!

Crap, thanks. Has anyone ever converted one to analog style gauges?

You'd have to change the fuel level sensor. Don't know about the rest.
