If anyone needs a MMDC box, I have one left. It's for the PS's...........usually VERY expensive....but I sold one last month to another TT member for $400.........and I'll do the same on this one. BUT you have to make sure the number on the box is the same and the one I have is:7018-00001-01 As a dealer I paid $817 plus shipping from TN for it..........retails for $1400 at a dealer. It's brand new~

Email me if anyone is interested: [email protected]

I'll sell all gauges and mdc if anyone wants them.
When you get them installed I'd love to see pics. I may be doing the same thing if I can't find gauges

Yea my last gauge comes in today and I plan on getting them in tonight. I'll get some pics up. Just to make you guys cringe a little and to show my true hatred for the medallion crap I sold everything to a member on here for 100 bucks. Thanks to Fullpass for getting this stuff out of my way fast.

so please describe how you did the swap, difficulty , labor hours, cost of gauges etc. Do the gauges connect the same or lots of wire cutting

Not too difficult, very awkward positions as you can't really wire then install on this particular boat.
I would say it took maybe 4-5 hours but I also had to put in a few senders and I was hanging out with a few buds drinking beer. Cost was somewhere in the 300 dollar range for all the Faria gauges. These are the kronos line.
As far as wiring you have to wire each gauge individually.
On the previous connector you have 4 wires
red- 12v
blue- lights
black/yellow line- ground
yellow- data from mdc
You cut the connector off then wire red blue and black to your new gauge and the yellow is not needed. Then you will need to run each signal wire from the mdc harness.
I also had to cut the hot in and hot out from the mdc and wire them together to get power to the red wire at each gauge.

I just ordered my Kronos gauge set, oil pressure, tach, fuel are inop. Not gonna waste time troubleshooting a known issue. I really like the look of the Kronos ones!

I hit the mdc1000 connectors with deoxit D5 and Gold, i think the fuel gauge may be working now but did not have time to lake test it. Oil pressure and tach are still dead.

Blake (or anyone) - how do you get the dash panel off to get to the gauges? I saw the two screens down by the steering wheel but how do you get those black connector things loose that are higher up on the dash area?

Mine is an 2000 X5 but the dash looks identical.
