low oil indicator
To continue the saga. Was out jumping waves with my 2004 genesis I, I had full oil indication. My son comes back ten mins later with low oil indication and no oil on display. Hull is clean and reservoir is full. I switch out the oil indicator with the one in my 2003 genesis I and it reads full in that ski and the one from the 2003 reads empty in the 2004. Could a connection become loose at the back of the display? If so how do I get to it and check it?
Thanks in advance

Measure the resistance at the rear of the MFD, if the oil is full it should read roughly 33 ohms.
As I recall you want to measure pin 3 (ground) and pin 6 (blue).
If you get nothing and the MFD lights up (indicating good ground), start checking the blue wire all the way back to the sender.
So you do get a correct reading when you install your 04 gauge in your 03 ski so that we know the gauge is good?

You know, I had one that had the wire pop off the terminal board, you might want to check inside the box IF you have resistance at the float connection but not the gauge.

I opened the panel behind the display and disconnected the display, fiddled with the wires alittle, than reconnected and oil level display came back up to normal. Thanks for all the suggestions. Does this qualify me as a certified polaris mechanic now?

People will be lining up at your door? Think of all the money you can make. All you need now is the $200K Polaris starter kit.
