    2011 Rxt X Gauge Cluster not turning on....HELP

    Hi all,

    I have an 2011 RXT-X.
    After a day of riding, I docked the ski at the ramp to get my trailer.
    When I went to start the ski to load on the trailer, The guage cluster lit up and just kept scrolling, "Reading Normal Key" and when I put the key on the post, I wasn't getting any beeps so I couldn't start the ski.
    When I got home and hit the red start button, the guage cluster isn't lighting up or displaying anything.

    Things I have tried so far:
    -Let ski sit for a few days
    -Removed battery terminals
    -Replaced fuses for ECU, battery, and guage
    -Checked wiring harness in front of ski

    Before I bring my ski to the dealer, does anyone else have any recomendations?

    Thank you!

    Obvious maybe, but is the battery in good condition and FULLY charged? (Ie not just showing voltage at lower end of spec)

    My ski also has a display gremlin. If I wake up ski with red button, connect DESS, display reads key and starts ( sometimes I need to press the DESS onto the post a couple of times for it to read).

    my gremlin is, if I just wake ski but pressing red button then WITHOUT putting DESS key on post try to access menus etc, I can only do this once. As soon as it times out and I wake it up again, the screen lights up all the LCD segments (does not run test function), then immediately goes off.

    I can only get past this by starting ski. Then the whole cycle starts again.

    The Harness fell off the back of the cluster on my 2010, look carefully there. Also there are some issues with there being a poor connection there, may not hurt to unplug it and clean it up. I put some dielectric grease in there.

    Thank you for the comments.
    The battery ended up being dead.
    Changed it and everything is working now.

    Thanks again.

    What a thread to bring back to life! lol. I'm having this same exact issue! Checked all fuses and they are fine. I'm thinking possibly the battery is my issue?
