2004 SSi no engine hour meter.

8 posts in this topic

Hi, I recently bought a 2004 280 SSi. It has twin VP 5.7 Gi-E engines. My problem is that when I bought it both engine hour meters were working, but now neither is. This is my first boat so I'm wondering if there is some switch that needs to be on for these to work? There has been a lot of work in the engine compartment and I don't know if something was knocked loose or do I just not have them turned on (displaying). Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

I have two separate Hobbs readouts that are located on either side of the switch dash panel and both stopped working at the same time. Not sure if there is a fuse for these or what the issue is.

D'oh! Well dang I was looking for the magic "make these work" switch.  Guess I'm ripping out the meters to test\replace them.

Thanks for all of the info!

If they were working before engine work and not after, I would look for loose wire in engine bay.   I have had a few items suddenly not work after engine work and they have always been a disconnected wire caused by the mechanic.
