    97 ZXI 900 - guages quit working.

    Any known issues with the guages? I have checked fuses and wiring connections, all good. Ski starts and runs, no movement in any of the guages.

    21175-3706 ECU. This is discontinued from Kawasaki so you will have to get a used one. There are several on eBay. Ignore what most of the listings call it (igniter, trim control unit). There are two 'electronic control modules' up under the handle bars, one smaller, two connector for the trim and one larger, 4 connector unit for the gauges.

    I had this same issue on mine a few years ago.

    Edit: this one claims to be NOS (new/old stock). I would go with it.

    Could one of the control boxes under the steering be bad as well?

    I beleive the one you are referring to is in the electric box in the rear of the hull, correct?

    No, the number I listed is located under the steering. Also, make sure the single 18ga black wire with a red tracer is on the negative battery post.

    Ok, that wire was laying lose, noticed it last night. That might be the whole issue. I thought it went to electric box but battery makes perfect sense based on its length.

    That will probably fix you up. I bet your trim isn't working right now either.

    Thats correct, it is not working either, just figured the motor went bad. I will try this tonight and advise if fixed. Thank you, probably saved me a ton of money in parts i dont need.

    Will the guages and vts work without the engine running? Should they work by simply turning the key to "ON"?

    Ok, hooked up blk wire with red dots to neg (-) battery, same result, no guages working.
