    MFD wont shut off

    Ok,

    So i finally got the MFD working, found that it wasnt getting enough power because of a some corrosion in the electrical box. Cleaned it up added some solder to make it even cleaner and keep it from happening again. Went out to ride the ski this weekend and put it in the water and the battery didnt have quiet enough juice to fire the ski. So pulled it out...charged and went back out riding. Found out that for some reason the MFD wont shut off, I think its suppose to have a time delay on it to turn off when not in use.

    any suggestions??
    thanks

    The MFD is always on sleeping. Think of it as a watch battery that lasts for years. I have three right now and one that has been sitting for two months like this and it fries right up. Maybe you have some other drain Bilge pump??

    No drain from the bilge that i know of, i just put in a new VR and the bilge is also ran through a switch so there is no way that the power is getting to it.
