Okay, My speedo/Smartcraft gauge started acting up the other day. It wouldn't work, then it would. The LCD would be blank and the speedo wouldn't work. I post about it, wiggled a few connections to the back of the gauge in case something was a bit loose.

Well, today and tonight.

Worked all afternoon while skiing etc, Off/On multiple times. No prob. Figured my wiggling last weekend worked. Dang, I am good. ;)

Then, at the end of the day, it quit working...but the red bezel light was glowing.

Pulled it out of the water, turned off key....bezel still lit.

Switch batteries off.....bezel still lit!!!

Unhooked one of the batteries. Bezel went out. Hooked it up, bezel didn't come on. Turned key, both gauges (tach and speedo) had normal LCD readouts.


Wierd.

Thoughts?
