Newbie needs help - gauges quit working?
First off, just want to say ya have a great site here. Lots of good information. I have a 96 Kaw 1100 zxi and the guages quit working. No lights, tach, speedo, kats, nothing? They worked fine the first few times out on the lake. Took it out last week, fire it up, runs great, but seems to not be getting power to the gauges. I checked the fuses and looked for any loose wires, but couldn't find anything out of place. Anyone hear of this or have any insight to what might be wrong? Thanks in advance.

gauges not working
I find that in these situations it is usually corrosion on the connectors. This happens even with fresh water skis. I worked on aircraft for many years and corrosion was the cause of many problems electrical and otherwise. Check all your connections and clean them with electrical contact cleaner. also use a wire brush as well or a stiff bristle tooth brush if the corrosion is loose. you can find the contact cleaner at your local auto parts store. of course their may be another cause that I have not seen. Good luck my friend. Im sure others will give advice as well.
