I have a 2007 Prostar 197 with perfect pass and the oem mastercraft speedometer. About 2 weeks ago both of my speedo's quit working when i was on the local lake. I thought the Airmar sensor went bad, so i ordered one from the dealer. That did not help any. Then i thought the Deutsch plug was not making a good connection (it had a little corrosion in it), so i cut it out and put butt connectors in it's place. Still no help.

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Does anyone have a wiring diagram? Should there be 12 volts on the hot wire coming to the plug?

i just did the gauge self test. the mc speedo did the sweep as it should have in the test. the pp unit did not move. It is digital and i figure this is what it should do.

i ended up taking my boat to the local dealer. he said there was a blown fuse behind the kick panel under the dash. He thinks i got some wires backwards when i was putting the new sensor in, but it quit working while i was using it. i think some moisture got in the deutsch connector and shorted the + to the - blowing the fuse. Hope you can fix yours without having to do what i did.

Hi, I am having the same problem and cannot find the fuse under the dash...Opened the DBW black box but there is no fuse in it.
Going bananas here....HELPPPP

Also if the fuse was blown wouldn't the whole unit blank and not just show 0 mph?
