New Tachometer Wrong Hours!

I just changed the entire dash from the white gauges to the yellow. But the rpm gauge is showing 0.0 hours. Is there any way to reset it with the correct 300 hours???

Seriously, probably have to take it to a dealer and have them go through the ECU to change the display, if possible...

Agreed with calling the dealer.

Actually, I did that when I changed my tachometer a few years ago. I just hooked the tack to a power supply sat it in the corner of my desk and waited 20 days, 4 hours and 15 minutes until it matched the hour meter it replaced.

I recall reading that, at some point, the hour meters were reporting actual engine hours (from the ECU) versus time key is on. If that's not the case with this one, you should be able to just hook it up to a battery and disconnect it in 12+ days when the hours are correct. Just be sure to set a reminder to disconnect it.

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.
