Thread: Mode/Set Button
01-26-2009, 11:40 AM #1
The Mode/Set button has stopped working. I Don't Mean that the button is broke, I mean that the display will not change function. I have tested the button itself and it works fine. Voltage shows all the way threw the switch, to the MPen.
What can I test next? Has anyone had this issue?
I don't know if this will help. When this problem originated it was working intermittently, but now nothing.
I know this is not much to go on. So ask questions, I will do my best to answer.

I'm assuming that you have an older RXP or RXT since the Set/Mode buttons went away on newer skis. If it was me, I would disconnect the battery and remove connector #1 to the MPEM and check for corrosion and proper fit. On the 2005 skis, the Mode button cuts a ground through from pin 1-4 (black) to pin 1-15 (YL-PU). The Set button cuts the same ground through to pin 1-14 (GN-PU). Just remember if you have an RXP, sometimes disconnecting the battery causes the VTS to be disabled in the MPEM... Ron

I will certainly check that out. Not sure i exactly under stand what you are saying with the pin numbers. Connector #1 would be on the left facing the MPEM?

According to the wiring diagram, there are two connectors: 1 and 2, which is the first digit. The second digit is the pin (or position number) withing the connector. My ski is covered with snow, otherwise I would take a look... Ron

I would pull the #1 connector and press the Mode button. The Mode button cuts a ground through from pin 1-4 (black) to pin 1-15 (YL-PU). Check for continuity with a VOM between 1-4 and 1-15 of the connector. Press the Set button. The Set button cuts the same ground through from pin 1-4 (black) to pin 1-14 (GN-PU). Check for continuity with a VOM between 1-4 and 1-14 of the connector. My guess is that you are either missiing the common ground, or it's the MPEM. Swapping a MPEM with a buddy would prove that...
