Put the 2000 PS 190 in the water for the first time this year on Friday. I had it into the dealership on Tuesday to have the transmission fluid changed and to have it summerized. When I started up the boat at the launch, everything was working fine. As soon as I backed it off the trailer and had it going in drive, all gauges (except the clock) stopped working. Before cutting out, the Tach meter went up to the max RPM's, 6000, and then dropped to 0. The engine was never running faster than normal. I let the boat run, slowly in gear, for about 15 min and then put it on the lift. After eating lunch, I took it back out to see if the gauges would work. No luck. At this time as I was heading back to the dock after letting it run for no more than 15 min I noticed water accumulating near my feet (on the floor under the instrument panel). I called the dealer and explained the problem. They thought it could be a busted speedo hose that sprayed over the breakers and cut everything else out. I told them water was not spraying, it was simply leaking in the floor near where the instrument wires run under the floor. Therefore, they think I may have a speedo wire that tore in that area and is leaking water. They still said they have no idea why all of the gauges stopped working. They said to bring it in, so I dropped it off at the dealership. They may have a chance to look at it before memorial day weekend, but no promises :( . Do any of you have any suggestions as to what might be going on or have had something similar to this happen to you? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.... as just like all of you, I hate not being able to spend time on the water :eek: . Thanks!
