View Full Version : 2008 x star ballast display issue

07-26-2012, 06:14 PM
My ballasts display on the gauge cluster only shows the middle and port side ballast. Any ideas why the starboard side isn't showing? All three pumps are working, but I cant monitor the starboard side at all because it doesnt show on the display.
has anyone seen this before?

I had a similar problem. If I remember correctly, what I did was turn off your battery disconnect and then take out all screws to gain access to the plug on the back of the VDIG screen. Unplug the VDIG and then plug it back in. Before reassembling everything, turn the disconnect back on and then turn on the ignition to see if that worked. If that doesn't work, try turning the battery disconnect and the ignition on while the VDIG is unplugged. Turn it back off, then reconnect the VDIG and test again. I know it sounds weird, but it worked for me and I havent had a issue since. My boat is an '08 X-Star also. Hope this helps

I'll ask my dealer when they open Tuesday, since that's who told my to try unplugging it. I'll get back with you after I talk to them. Have you made any progress with it since?
