    Sounds like your MFI has an internal problem.

    You can bypass the MFI security, which will allow you start and run the engine without the MFI connected.

    We are talking about the MFI displays, with the round speedometer - correct?

    Unplug the MFI connector from behind the display, and leave it unplugged for a few minutes.

    Plug the MFI back into the connector. Does the MFI immediately wake up and 'reboot' (attached photo), then settle down to show the clock (previous photo)?

    If not, then the MFI is probably bad, or the wiring has a problem.

    If it settles down with the clock, does the engine now start and run properly?

    If not, the MFI is probably bad.

    If the MFI is bad, bypass it as described previously.
