    2000 XL 1200 Limited - Computer display screen questions-

    Hi I need some help.

    I am very good with Polaris skis but donmt know anything about the Yamahas.

    Just picked up a 2000 XL 1200 Limited. Had been sitting for a couple years.

    Anyway battery was dead. I put a new battery in.

    So, I think the ski may be locked up but regardless, I cant get anything to display on the display screen.

    When I hold in the "mode" button START will appear on the screen, and also when I hit the start button, START will also display. So something is getting power. But otherwise, nothing else will display on the screen. I wanted to check for hours, ect, and go from there.

    Is there a unlock code or something I am missing? I checked the 2 main fuses both good. I just dont know what else to test next.

    Also, is there anyway to turn this motor over manually? I cant find anywhere where I can turn the shaft to see if its really locked up or not.

    Right now, my main concern is getting the display screen to work.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    the engine needs to rotate in order for the display to show any info, so if your engine is locked up , display will not turn on.

    ???? Really the engine needs to rotate for this diplay to show any info? Thats really weird, I have never heard of this on any ski. You are sure of this correct?

    the display "wakes up" when it senses the signal from the CDI. If the battery was disconnected for a long time the start code went back to default AAAA
