Customer Question

Just took
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.
Customer: Just took 2012 VX Cruiser Waverunner out, it had been off lift and pulled up to shore waiting to take out. It showed zero mph while running on lake a little before taking out. rpms were showing going up and down, but just "0 mph" on.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?
Customer: it was working last time I had it out, but its been a few weeks. I did not change the panel myself

I have it out on trailer now, at home. Started up for a few seconds and hit the control panel, but don't know how to do it off water, stopped it real quick because know you're not suppose to run it
