Hello everyone need help! Sunday after a late run I look down at my dash and see all dash completely non-functional. Every needle was pinned down. The engine ran fine in fact it's running great. The strange thing is as soon as I pressed the bow light switch the gages worked?????? I replaced the digital computer (computer for speedo, temp, bat, etc... under the dash) last year. I can't imagine that is it. Can anyone offer some ideas??? The boat is a 99 ProStar with LTR.

Thanks,
PT

Look at your battery terminal connection. If the nuts on the terminals come into contact with any metal it can cause the electrical components to go haywire. The rubber on the battery wire wore down on my prostar and the nut was touching the metal. It caused similar problems until I covered the metal with more rubber. If that isn't the problem, I am not sure what is going on. Hope this helps.
