2007 X2 Depth Module

I have a 2007 X2 which my gauge is no longer displaying depth. I tried replacing the transducer but still same problem. Its a Medallion Depth Module. Does anyone know of any test that I can apply to the module to see if its damaged or still good? I don't want to go out and spend $400 on a new module just to find out its something else. I checked all the wiring at the module and it seems to be good. I haven't checked the wiring to the actual gauge but the gauge is reading everything else such as hours, air temp, water temp and time.

Anyone know what the output of the wires on the module should be if its working correctly?

depth module

Just so happens I am looking at a2007 x2 from a dealer. The depth gauge was showing ""wait" continuously while in water. Dealer says they changed fuse and now it doesn't say that but they haven't been in water to see if it will show depth. Maybe you already checked fuse and this is no help but changing the fuse did change things.

Since you have the same boat I have a question. Have you experienced any ignition, cap and rotor, plug wires, or plug wire related engine fault problems on your x2? We have water tested the 2007 x2 twice now and there have been warning beeps and check engine messages. The first time, dlr changed plugs and said test showed fine so we took another water test. Same thing happened so mechanic came and plugged in his laptop which only showed an old cylinder one fault and thought that it was due to a bad plug wire and/or moisture that burned off fix problem did not repeat. Dealer has since replaced plug wires and tested and says there is no repeat. The motor is the mcx 350. Naturally, I am a wee bit spooked zfter two bad water tests. Anyone have an opinion whether this is a boat to stay away from?

Stay away unless you want to spend some money....or if he wants to include a 12 month warranty? If he says no then he believes there will be problems in the next 12 months. This will be the sure sign if he expects it give problems later. If he says no problem then he believes it is in excellent condition.

hmm, I have 499.6 hours on mine as of today and never had a blink except a throttle sensor. no issues with any gauges still have original plugs and wires. i wanted to post a pic at 500 hours today but didn't get there.

I finally did get the depth finder to work. Had to replace the module. The transducer was fine.

In regards to any electrical problems - the answer is none. No plug problems, no wire problems, no electrical problems. I maintain the boat very well. Clean, Dry and proper maintenance. The only problem I had was with the fuel pump. Eventually had to replace the pump. Reading many of the threads this was a problem with this series of fuel pumps. Since I replaced it - no problems

advice

Thanks to all for the advice. Unfortunately, here in Montana there aren't many MCs and even fewer x2s. It would be perfect but is too spooky to jump into it seems.
