    Apparently the mfd is bad. Installed new fuse and it blew right away.

    If the MFD is indeed bad then unplug it from behind the display. Sometimes a bad display will cause other weird problems, so best to unplug it.

    Thanks I did unplug it and double check the voltage still had 12.7 volts. Plan on leaving it off until its repaired or I get a new one. Is 260 a good price that's what I found on ebay so far.

    That sounds like a lot of money for that old of a machine. I mean you can still ride it with out the MFD. But they are hard to come by. I would offer $150 tops. JMO.

    Not sure what the battery voltage is about? The only battery voltage that actually matters is the voltage when the engine is cranking. If the cranking voltage is nicely above 10.6 volts then the battery is good.

    Every year the are fewer of these Polaris MFD still in good working condition. The only source is watercraft that are being parted out. Price varies but an MFD in good physical condition with a clear display and no faded digits will not be sold cheaply. There is a repair guide for displays that are otherwise good but have faded or missing LCD digits.

    If you are patient you should be able to find one for 100 to 150 bucks. Im out of town right now but I will look and see what I have for extras. I may be able to sell you one.
