Question about Lowrance GPS

Open Question

I have a 2005 suzuki df250 with the ep20 and the suzuki SMIS Gauge (LMF400) I have gone thru the setup a number of times, but the problem is: after setting up the engine information to the correct engine the engine fuel floe at idle reads 4.2gph and the trim reads -1 all the time (yes the trim 2 wire plug is plugged in). I had a Yamaha fuel flow gauge on this engine prior to purchasing this lowrance stuff and my fuel flow at idle was .03 to.06 at idle. I am a Suzuki outboard dealer and spoke to Suzuki Tech service about this problem and they told me to call Eli Bates, I have left messages with no return phone calls. How are we suppose to sell this product if NO ONE knows how to fix it. Can you help? Thanks Doug Minke atl Performance Marine 425-258-9292 Washington State

SOURCE: 95 GMC Jimmy 4.3l W vin rough idle

My problem was solved when I repaired my 4 wd activation dash switch. The switch was contacting on 2WD & 4HI at the same time. The front differential activation is vacuum activated possibly creating a tug of war that didn't actually engage it but drained off vacuum from the engine? A theory at best but stumbbled across it because I knew the switch wasn't working properly I repaired it and low and behold rough idle disappeared and all is good for 3 weeks running.

SOURCE: Fuel Gauge reads empty all the time

The circuit for a fuel gauge is: battery positive through the gauge resistor to the sending unit to the fuel tank(sheet metal) to the chassis to the battery negative. If you didn't remove the sending unit the most likely problem is the fuel tank is not grounded to the frame. Scrape some paint at the rear mounting bolt where you can't see it and re-tighten the bolt. If you removed the sending unit, check the cork gasket. There should be a staple in it that is the connection to the sheet metal. No kidding.

SOURCE: 2001 volvo s60 t5 - performance reduced warning message, limp mode activated

I had exactly the same problem on my UK 2001 S60.
It was caused by the throttle control housing gaskets not being serviced properly and consequently the entire housing had to be replaced - not a cheap job -and a valuable lesson learned - use a reputable volvo specialist to service your volvo - I didn't and I learnt the hard why! only a volvo specilaist would have known about this I went to several other main street garages & none of them could even diagnose the problem let alone fix it. Although they did do numerous other things first before they gave up - ie replaced titanium spark plugs.
Before it stoppped running altogther and went into "limp home mode" there were tell-tale engine/throttle surges when the car was idle, but in gear.
It is now running "like new" & I will never get another garage to service it, as this could have been avoided - however they can also wear out after about 10years - so my bad services just made it happen sooner!
I hope this helps!

there is an open recall for this exact concern. contact your local suzuki dealership service department and give them your VIN number so they can run it thru suzuki's website. If it comes back with open recall code NB then they will fix your vehicle at no cost you from suzuki coorp.
