Need help with 2011 8x8 Frontier - LCD Display is gone
I fired up the Argo this afternoon to check the fluids, battery, air pressure, etc.
When I turned the key, the LCD display flashed the battery indicator, showing only 1 bar. I turned the key and the battery had enough juice to turn the motor, and I started it without problem.
I noticed while starting that the entire LCD display flashed repeatedly, and now there is no display. The backlight to the display comes on when the key is on, and all of the electronics run fine (headlights, winch, etc.) The e-brake light comes on as well when it should.
All connections under the hood look fine.
The machine has sat for about 6 weeks, and has around 10 hours on it (I can't tell for certain as the LCD display no longer works ).
I let it idle for about 10 minutes, restarted, ran 10 more minutes and still no change.
Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this one? Do I have a faulty LCD display?
Try unplugging the unit under the hood and if that doesnt work ... you'll need to replace the whole unit
Replace the whole unit every 10 hours? Screw that. Argo needs to get their act together; using crap gauges on piece of equipment like this is a terrible business model.
I couldnt agree more BUD. The Unit it self is a great idea but its far from being 100% reliable
