    MFD repairs & Fuel Levels

    Hey guys,

    I tried using the search function, but something is working right.

    Does anyone have any info on who is doing MFD repairs? My mfd has always been real light in color, but now this year, I can hardly read anything on it.

    Also, anyone have any info on the sending unit/ fuel float info? The mfd is constantly reading low fuel. This is a new issue. Last year whent he ski was winterized, everything was working fine. Now that I have de-winterized, the fuel level shows low and is sending the low fuel warning lights. I filled the tank completely full, but still didnt help. I am assuming it is a bad float? I searched on that and found info on using an ohm meter to read the ohm's, but meters arent my strong point.

    If anyone has any info, I sure could use the help. Thanks guys!

    Mike's radio is full bore ahead, as long as the LCD (he hasn't been able to source one) itself is not bad he can repair it.

    Anyone have an idea of how much Mike's radio shop charges?

    I have looked through all the steps of repairing it myself, but just dont have the confidence to tear this one apart, and then epoxy it back together.

    Some how last night when I was searching this topic, I came across a thread with someone offering to do the repair at no charge. I think the owners screen name started with an S.

    If anyone knows of who is doing this repair, please let me know. I am very short on cash, and really need this mfd repaired before the season goes full swing.

    Forgive me for asking but how does cleaning existing soldered connections fix anything, are you suggesting that there is some form of shorting between pcb, seems kinda funny. Don't get me wrong, if it works great, I am just looking for the silver bullet that really fixes the problem. Regards.

    same priciple as a lcd watch, get a little moister in there, display gets wacky. beside you know how toys are, sometimes they like too be played with and given love. half the time when i fix something i have no idea what i did to make it work, just did the job and sabang it worked.
    if a repair works do it, a good working mfd ill set yah back +- $200
    ck conection on your fuel sender too when our fuel reading went bad, did that first and worked fine, didnt even replace the float.
