depth finder/speedometer 1995 Maristar

I'm having problems with both my speedometer and teleflex through hull digital depth finder. The speedometer only seems to work at speeds above 20 mph, and the depth finder doesn't work at all. I opened up my dash last night and noticed there is a very small black and red wire that connect to the speedometer. The wires are actually connected to a small round black plastic peice, which is inserted into a hole on the back of the speedo and taped in place. Any ideas?

For starter, clear out your pitot pickups with a small safety pin (or dental drill bit if you have one) and see if it works any better. As for the depth finder, I've got nothing. They don't work forever unfortunately.

Welcome.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
