zsqure - what tools did you use to separate the gauge faceplate from the housing? Is it glued together? I'll be doing this from a remote location so I want to make sure I bring everything I need.

Thanks

Used the edge of a knife blade to work the two parts apart. Came apart eventually. was not afraid of boogering it up since a dual line upgrade was available from PP at the time. Still have it on my toolbox, why I do not know.

Man those are some sexy buttons - its a shame PP doesn't provide a hook up for a remote wiring loom to have buttons elsewhere. Something like two of those mounted near the throttle would be great for adjustment on the fly for trick skiers etc.

Someone that can't even make it around the buoys doesn't deserve a $1349 speed control system.

Still in re: those buttons - are they marine momentary push buttons? Do you know where you got them from? I have this diesel tractor from the 1980's and I want to find something like those in both momentary and on/off for lights and horns - something nice and flush mounted.

EBAY has a bazillion different ones. This is a momentary marine switch. link below:

thanks. assuming it's glued?

when you test the leads, were you using paperclips as a contact point to attach the mutlimeter to and then hitting the gauge buttons until you saw a voltage change?

I believe all I did was to ring out the circuit for continuity. I determined the domed switch was not making contact because there was a break in the material. If I jumped it with two straight pins stuck into the traces on either side of the switch it worked. At that point I traced the circuit back to the connector and its respective pins.
