Hello RHOG, this is my first post here. I own a 2016 Raven 2 I picked up in June this year. I have 90 or so hours on the machine and I am having an issue with the Cylinder Head Temp gauge periodically not working. I have had the problem for a while now and have replaced the probe once which seemed to fix the problem for a while but it’s acting up again. The needle will randomly stay on the cold side of the gauge on start/warm up and never move. Sometimes I can switch the master and Aux switches off then back on then it will work. Other times it does nothing. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to when this happens. It can occur when I start up cold or warm. I was told the probes fail quite often but I’m starting to suspect it might be something else. Has anyone experienced anything like this?
Twice in the past I have simply slipped the zip ties securing the sending wire to a different position closer to the probe. Worked both times but that being said I’ve also had to replace the probe on different ships twice.
