Gauges going crazy

I have a 2005 x-2 I went to reset the clock, and then all of the gauges starting going crazy. i turn on the engine, and the engine is running normal, but the gauges are all going from zero to full and back to zero? I dont know what to do.

Just saw this. Did you ever get it fixed? Sounds like a bad MMDC. That's first thing it does when it gets water inside it from a winter freeze. They are very fragile. You can run the boat fine without it for the time being , just unplug the MMDC connection and all your gauges will fall to rest. You perfect pass should still work because its not linked to the MMDC

Seems like the mmdc fail a lot. Should they just be removed in the winter?

Read alot of issues with the MDC here. Might be a bad ground on the MMDC ... since it's still showing signs of life... maybe contact points need cleaning up as well. Does the 2005 have any water sent to it via any tube? Are they sealed well? can condensation get in there? No help here but curious.

I have an 04 MS 230. during my last few outings at what I can so far determine to be random times all my gauges except for the tach reset as if I had just turned the key on. where the needles jiggle and go to full then back to 0 then start functioning normally. then they do it again later at some other random time.

Anybody experience this?

LittleFuss, I recently replaced my tach for the same issue.
Being on the water is best, but when I'm not on the water I'm on TT.
