Flashing Hour Meter
I have a 1997 GTX. One has a flashing hour meter with "---". Any ideas?

You can try to reset the hour meter. I'm not sure if it is supposed to show the engine hours or if it's just meant to remind you of service intervals. If anyone else knows...is it possible that it's only there to input the hours before doing service? Such as a new engine...coud you punch in say 30 hours and it shows you that the 30 hours break-in period is over? But here's what the manual says about resetting...and they don't mention that the hour meter can't be reset.
To reset a function such as the chronometer, peak speed, trip meter, ect., select the desired function using the MODE button then press and hold the SET button for 2 seconds.

I saw this a couple of times. I replaced the MPEM without doing the proceedure and the hours on the meter are more than the mpem. Ifthe mpem is replaced by the dealer the hours and serial numbers will be put in the new mpem. Or if its used put in the info meter from the other ski

I have the same problem with my 1998 GTX RFI. I will try to reset it tonight.

had this happen to a friends ski. we both had 97gtx's and after swapping mpems, info gauges to trouble shoot, we found that the compass was no good. don't ask me why, just the way it was.
fyi, the hours from the ski are in the info gauge, not the mpem.

it is a little box under the hood. you need to remove the black plastic cover to get at it. it was a couple of years ago, but if memory serves correct, it did work once we replaced it. he was also having issues with the tach reading crazy numbers all the time.

I had the same problem. I unplugged the compass but then my analog gauges didn't work and all this other weird crap...I thnk I plugged the compass back in so I have analog gauges, no digital ones now and my hours still flash ---- oh well. Ski runs like a champ tho.

Before I go buying a Compass I would like to know whether you tried it and did it work ?
