    Newbie Question - MFI panel won't shut off

    Hello
    Ski -2000 Genesis
    Picked up in a divorce sale, no books, lost title, 3 months to finally say I own it. I charged up the battery-hooked it up and hit the start button. Engine turned over fine, but I did not try to start it till I had it checked out. I pulled the lanyard, and the instrument panel still registers fuel and time. Start button will still crank the engine over with the lanyard pulled. I disconnected the battery and made an appointment for pre season service.
    I took it in the shop, had it service, and mentioned the problem. When they called me they said the Genesis has one big problem. I said I'm sitting down, go ahead spill it. The mechanic said "You need to use it more, 60 hours in seven years is not enough." I told him I just bought it and he said. "well then you got a great deal on a near new Genesis." But, now that it is at home, the MFI is still on 4 hours later. The start button will still turn over the motor, but won't start it.
    Is that normal? Or am I stupid? Anybody got a 2000 or 2001 Genesis manual available?

    Help, please!

    AUTO OFF: After five minutes of no activity, the system automatically shuts itself off. The internal clock continues to keep time. Memorey funcyions are retained, and the clock, fuel level and oil level will be displayed.

    AUTO OFF: While in the sleep mode, the clock continues to show time, and the fuel level, ol level and the compass rose are displayed.

    what if the AUTO OFF isn't functioning, the ski's display panel ('01 Polaris SLH) never powers off?
    also, i have no tilt or trim. no read-out and no function.
    ski runs, but the previous items are what is not working.

    new spark plugs
    new battery
    fresh re-built motor

    any advice? help?
    What should i do?

    2001 Owner's manual, or Service Manual?
    In paper or electronic PDF format?

    Can it be uploaded to Mattman's site?

    I have both the owner and service manual in the paper form(the service manual covers all 3 bangers for that year I gave it to Al and Kevin to get put on the MattMans site- I thought they were to send it to you?)

    I will have to admit I lost track of the process. I helped beerdart in a minor fashion regarding the 1992-1998 Service Manual.

    My understanding was that Al was going to look into having a service bureau scan some of the other service manuals, circa 2000.

    Were there NO PDF versions of these pre-2002 manuals from Polaris?
    When did Polaris move to PDF publication of service manuals?

    In the meantime, I purchased my own copies of several service manuals, including these two. If no-one else has the time and ability to convert them to electronic PDF format, I may make a project out of it. Don't know where I will find the time, however...

    The two perfect bound paper manuals I have here are;
    2000 Service Manual - covers SLH (701cc), Virage (701cc), Pro785 (779cc)
    PN 9916289

    Watercraft 2001 - covers SLX, PRO 1200, Virage TX, Genesis, Virage TXi, Genesis i (all 1165cc)
    PN 9917164

    If I do them here, I will have the bindings sliced off, then feed them through my Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner. Then OCR the files using Adobe Acrobat, much the same way beerdart did, and produce search-able PDF files.
